The "Only Ones"...

... capable of carrying a gun in a park?

Not so much.

Austin Police say Officer Daniel Eveleth, an 11-year veteran, somehow lost his loaded Glock gun at the popular and heavily-used Slaughter Creek Metropolitan Park early Monday morning. Eveleth was at the park early Monday training with the canine unit.

Several hours after police left, a group of mothers and children found the gun laying in plain sight.

I'd have been tempted to employ the "finders keepers" rule. Hey, it was in a park, after all.

I can't for the life of me figure out how you "lose" a gun like that. They carry full-sized pistols.
