Texas Deputy Forgets Gun in Rental Car

It's not unusual for counter agents to ask rental customers whether they want "protection" for their rental period. However, that typically refers to collision damage waiver or supplemental liability insurance products -– certainly not firearms. But according to a news report in the Houston Chronicle, a couple from Conroe, Texas, recently discovered a gun in the console of their rental car.

It turns out the gun belonged to a deputy with the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable's office. The deputy has apologized for his forgetfulness.
