I actually did drop a toy gun down an outhouse hole. Almost made me cry. And I don’t remember exactly how it happened.
As for real guns and people who don’t think they’re registered. In 1976 I bought a .357 magnum at a Western Auto Store. (I was becoming a cop.) A few months later I left the “cop business” and sold the gun to a deputy sheriff. About 2 years later I got a call from the ATF wanting to know if I still owned the gun. I told them I had sold it and they wanted to know to whom. I told them I didn’t remember his name but he was a deputy in Craighead County. I then asked if the gun had been used in the commission of a crime. They told me it had but wouldn’t tell me what type of crime. I never heard from them again. So, as soon as they got their hands on the gun they knew who had bought it and where.
They’re not registered, but there is a paper trail. The serial number can be traced to the shop where the gun was sold, and then they can get the records by warrant.
Make sure your local gun shop will not hand over records without a warrant!
I just want to know what happened to the toy gun?
Don’t tell me
