happy to see the officers look out for the lady's interest and the interests of history couldve gone to the smelter just as easily

I've always wondered how the police can buy guns BACK if they didn't sell them to you in the first place. From my understanding of the English language, you can only buy something back from someone if you sold it to them in the first place. Or is this just the liberal viewpoint that everything you have comes from the government, and rather than just take your property, they buy it?

—if it’s not a “dewat” ,I suspect it is not going to a museum but with the usual lack of knowledge displayed in the reporting, one doesn’t know-—

Even an inoperable StG44 is illegal to own without a class-3 permit. It’s a wonder the officers didn’t confiscate it from her.
I don’t know how she could legally sell it, either. Look for the BATF officers to come knocking on her door.

Where can you get ammo for something like this? It is not, to my knowledge, available.

Years ago, at a gun buy back, a widow woman brought in her husband's two guns. The policeman on duty recognized them as WWI Colt .45 1911 and a near mint 1903. He told her to take them to an appraiser and get the real value of them as they were collector's items.
After she left with the rifle and pistol still in her possession, the officer was REPRIMANDED for letting two guns get away.

"If the gun had been in the closet loaded, any second you could hit the wrong level and discharge a fatal round...
At the time the officers received the gun, it was in such disrepair that it was inoperable, unable to shoot a bullet even if the gun had been loaded.
Not being a gun expert, I can't see how both these statements can be true.
