Report Finds Hundreds of Firearms Stolen From U.S. Military

New attention is being paid to weapons that have gone missing from the U.S. military.

An Associated Press investigation over 10 years found that at least 1,900 firearms were lost or stolen from the military.

Unlocked doors, sleeping troops and broken surveillance systems led to hundreds of weapons, including machine guns and automatic weapons, being stolen over the years.

Some firearms stolen from the Army have been used in violent street crimes like shootings and robbery.

Army officials say that they investigate missing weapons cases and have been able to recover some of the firearms.
