Toddler accidentally shoots himself in chest while in car

Don’t trust your glove box. Lock up your handguns in a Tuffy Portable Security solution.


By Julianne Cassidy.

A Florida couple were moving out of their home Wednesday when they heard a “popping noise” coming from their car. Inside, they found their 2-year-old boy — Kaleb Ahles — dead from a gunshot wound to his chest.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Offices said in a media release, “[Kaleb] had entered the vehicle at some point as the family was loading the vehicle to move out of the house,” My Fox Tampa Bay reports.

Ahles’ parents will not face charges because the gun was secured in the vehicle’s glove box compartment.

Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri says, “I don’t think anybody can punish these parents any more than what they’ve been punished. This is something they will carry with them and live with the rest of their lives,” My Fox Tampa Bay further reports.

According to My Fox Tampa Bay, “The sheriff said investigators determined the parents had taken ‘reasonable steps’ to secure the gun.”

The sheriff also confirms that authorities “are confident that the boy pulled the trigger himself because the shell casing was not completely ejected from the slide,” My Fox Tampa Bay details. “The sheriff says that would be consistent for somebody who has a weak wrist.”

Let’s just call it the IACP show.

We just finished attending the International Association of Chiefs of Police Expo (let’s just call it the IACP show) here in Florida. Why would police departments have their own product show, you ask?  Just consider some of the normal and oddball stuff a department needs to use on a regular basis:

  • cameras
  • sirens
  • scuba gear
  • Segway scooters
  • weapons lockboxes :-)

I truly have no idea what this is all about, but apparently you can also find dinosaurs here too …

Since there’s not exactly stores like these on every street corner, that’s why we’re here.  We give agencies a single place to see it all and compare us all side by side like a line-up to give them the best bang for their buck … or is it OUR buck?

One of the issues in discussion this year was the use of body-worn cameras and the value of the story they tell during an incident. Another was the increase in officer deaths via ambush. I give all of them kudos for doing what they do every day.

I spoke with a chief who confided to me that despite the crazy things he’s seen, what makes him angriest is finding out that one of the citizens he’s charged with protecting attempts to do a quick grab for the guns in a patrol vehicle. Obviously, he was at the right booth!


I can’t say whether he’ll become a Tuffy customer or not, but I’m confident that when the need arises, he’ll give us a call.

Security boxes are perfect for cops

Police have a lot of gear to keep track of, most of which is dangerous. Therefore, they need innovative security solutions that keep weapons and equipment safe while still allowing them to be accessible.

It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes police gear can fall into the wrong hands. That’s why it’s critical to have a security box that keeps everything locked away. When Bruce Baker of the Marin County Sheriff’s Office in California was asked about how important choosing security equipment was, he noted just how important it is to keep police tactical gear locked away.

“Something that’s going to keep everybody safe,” Baker said. “I mean, that’s our No. 1 thing in law enforcement is to keep everybody safe, to make sure they go home every night to their families.”

Baker knows that in his line of work, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Police officers can keep all their gear locked away in one secure place with a security box. And best of all, this piece of equipment can be placed in the back of a vehicle or at home. Whether they need a safe location to store a shotgun or an innovative way to organize gear, a security box is the solution. Weapons and other dangerous items will not only stay out of the hands of criminals , but also children at home.

An ideal security box will be made of steel and won’t limit access to the contents within. While police officers want to stay safe when storing their equipment, they also want to be able to get their hands on weapons and other gear quickly in the event of an emergency.

Police officers are given peace of mind, on or off the job, knowing that their weapons and gear are safely locked away in a security box.

Guns should be stored in a lockbox

Whether you are a hunter or a frequenter of the gun range, safely storing your weapons is critical.

A gun owner’s worst nightmare would be if their firearm were to fall into the hands of their children or stolen by a thief. The implications of improperly storing a gun are far reaching – that’s why it’s essential to have the proper storage products. A lockbox is perfect for a hand gun for a variety of reasons. Not only will this product keep a gun safely locked away, but it can also be conveniently mounted into a vehicle or somewhere in a home.

Children won’t likely be able to find a mounted lockbox in the basement storage room, much less access its contents if they do happen to find it. This innovative design makes storing a gun easy.

So what about opening a lockbox? Odds are an owner wants quick access to their gun, and lock boxes make it easy. With a pushbutton combination lock, any gun owner can get into their lockbox in no time.

This product is ideal for anyone who uses their gun recreationally, but it is also perfect for cops on and off the job. Considering police are put in so many dangerous situations on a daily basis, storing a gun in a lockbox will give them peace of mind. They can rest assured that a gun is safe and sound when it isn’t on their hip.

FBI agent has guns stolen from vehicle

Law enforcement officers are always encouraged to keep their guns in a lockbox inside their home and vehicles as an FBI agent recently learned the hard way what that not properly storing weapons can be detrimental.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police in North Carolina received a report from the FBI that one of their agents had handguns and ammunition stolen from a vehicle parked in south Charlotte. The car was parked in a hotel lot and was broken into early Thursday morning.

Local and federal officials are investigating the crime, and encourage anyone with further information on the crime to get in touch with the Charlotte FBI at 704-672-6100.

Whether someone needs to keep fragile items safe or they just don’t want a gun moving around inside a box, this foam will help.

Storage boxes provide more space
While a lockbox is ideal for smaller items, with the amount of equipment required to be a police officer, many choose a metal storage box for added secure storage space.

Like a lockbox, this product is durable and will keep anything inside safe. These boxes can be mounted into the trunk of a vehicle, allowing officers safe storage for everything from their road flares to their ballistic vest.
