Son Pawned Gun
« on: September 17, 2016, 09:14:20 AM »
I loaned my gun to my son to shoot targets with me on my 10 acre property where we both live.  He kept it and I went out of town.  Some months later, he told me that he had pawned my gun.  Although I don't want to charge him with theft, I am concerned about the gun which is registered in my name being used for something inappropriate after it is sold by the pawn shop.  What should I do?

chaplainjb,

The best course of action at this point would be to obtain a copy of the paperwork from the sale to the pawn shop so that you can show the firearm has not been in your possession since that date.
