    The head of the agency that protects national parks and monuments — the U.S. Park Police — says he’s ordering immediate action, after a report on a large supply of missing weapons.

    FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

    Audio clip:

    Handguns… Rifles… Even machine guns… Are nowhere to be found, according to the report from the Interior Department’s Inspector General.¬†There’s no indication the weapons are in the hands of criminals, but there’s also no assurances they aren’t.

    Investigators did find 1,400 guns that were supposed to have been melted down.¬†Another 200 are sitting in a DC warehouse and don’t show up in any records.

    The report blames in part, commanders who have a lackadaisical attitude towards firearms management — an indifference that’s a product of years of inattention.
