Story | Nov 12, 2013 | 9:00 AMConnecticut's Least Responsible Gun Owners: Kevin Merchant reported a handgun had gone missing from his Hartford home and he has no idea where it is. Merchant should particularly know the importance of securing firearms; he is a police officer in Springfield, Mass. The gun, for which Hartford police are still searching, was his service weapon, reports The Republican, a Springfield newspaper. Meanwhile, Shawn French of Waterbury and his friend spent an afternoon firing blanks from a .22 caliber handgun, "taking turns pointing [it] at each other and pulling the trigger," reports WFSB.
