Oh Shoot! Daggett Leaves Loaded Gun In Loaner Car

gun_&_bulletsIn yet another bizarre turn in an already crazy gubernatorial campaign, independent candidate Chris Daggett this week made a mistake he’ll not soon forget: He left a loaded gun in a car when he dropped it off at a dealership. Daggett, in a telephone interview, explained it was just an honest error made when switching cars so he could get his Acura serviced. The gun, he said, belongs to his driver, retired state trooper Ken Argiro. “It was accidentally left in the loaner car,” Daggett said. “They called and immediately we took care of it.” Daggett had brought his car in for servicing to Bridgewater Acura on Route 22. ”I’ve put more miles on my car in the last few months than you can imagine,” he said.

On Monday, he went to retrieve the vehicle and leave the loaner — with the gun in it. “It was addressed immediately,” Daggett said. Star ledger.

  1. Big deal! in n.j where a gun is like a UFO maybe its a big deal but hello in most of america (normal states) there are guns all over the place and they are left in cars all the time, so chill out

  2. Right on Mark! Fyi- I keep my gun in my car all the time-yes here in lakewood! It is legal and I encourage more people to do so! Go to the police dep and get he forms.

  3. To all the guys that “keep their guns in their car”….You probably are bluffing BUT if you do and get pulled over and are found to have a loaded weapon in your car I believe you will be arrested. As far as I know a weapon must be disassembled and in a locked case in the trunk.

  4. Lcsw40- according to the law of the state of nj, the gun needs to be unloaded and either in the trunk or glove compartment. It does NOT need to be taken apart. The main thing is to keep the gun and ammo separate- one in the trunk and one in the car. I don’t keep mine loaded, just a quick pop of the trunk and its ready.
