If it was a donated book there's a good chance that whomever gave it to the library was unaware of the gun was inside.

I know our local library gets a lot of donations from people clearing out houses & apartments after a relative passes away. I'm wondering if that's what happened in this case.

I wouldn't mind a donation like that myself. I'm not a gun person, but that would be a cool tchotchke to keep on the bookshelf.

That's a nice pistol. I keep a modern version of that in my car. It's double barreled and holds to .410 buckshot cartridges. For taking the faces off of carjackers of course.

No. it's Colonel Mustard, with a lead pipe, in the ball room.

I asked one of the librarians about it and she wants to try to get the gun returned to the owner. I think it'll probably wind up in an auction.

No, it's Mr. Green in the Hall with a revolver. That was after Professor Plum killed the other Mr. Boddy, Mrs. Peacock killed the cook, Colonel Mustard killed the motorist, Mrs. White killed Yvette, Miss Scarlet killed the cop, and Wadsworth killed the singing telegram girl.

I once read about a retired sheriff buying a radio that seemed too heavy to him. Curious when he got home, he removed the back panel and found a huge bag of Peruvian marching powder. It's like this stuff never happens to someone who would just love the swag like manna from heaven. Go figure.

No, you never hear about it, when it happens with someone who would like it to happen. "Oh, free gun. I'm going to call a reporter to gloat about this!" Not gonna happen. Some people might report it...hoping to get rid of the gun in case it's linked to a crime. Those wanting to keep it will simply add it to their collections and move on with life.

Me and my fiancee originally got together at a shadow-cast showing of Clue, so I'm getting a kick out of this
