Laravel pluck and findOrFail not returning correct row

I am using the Gate facade to check whether a user can delete a row, or not.

 Gate::define('delete-cons', function ($user, $cons) {
        $c_id = Cons::findOrFail($cons)->pluck('c_id');
        return $user->c->id == $c_id;
    });

If I output $cons, it returns 4.

4   2   1   Mr  Joe Bloggs  male    1234567 0   1_1474822931.png    2017-01-02 17:33:49 2017-01-02 17:33:49 NULL

The first column above is the primary key, so as we can see, it should return this row.

However, upon outputting $c_id after the query, it shows:

#items: array:4 [▼
    0 => 1
    1 => 1
    2 => 1
    3 => 2
  ]

I would've expected it to return the last result of 2, but it returns all 4 rows within the table!

Even if I manually type the ID of the row to get:

$c_id = Cons::findOrFail(4)->pluck('c_id');

It still returns all rows.

I'm aware I can use

$c_id = Cons::where('id', $cons)->pluck('c_id');

Which works correctly, but I'm following the Laravel Gate example, where FindOrFail throws an exception.

Many thanks.

You shouldn't use pluck() after findOrFail(), because it will just run query to get c_id from all rows. Do something like this instead:

$c_id = Cons::findOrFail($cons)->c_id;

If for some reason you want to use pluck(), do this:

$c_id = Cons::where('column', $cons)->pluck('c_id');
