Member Forum Question: My Son Pawned My Gun, What Do I Do?

 forum-capture

From the Member Forum: 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?

A U.S. Law Shield Independent Program Attorney replied, “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.”
