"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
Walk back up river give my hunting buddy his gun back and take his flask away.
Out of curiosity, If the gun has no serial number on it, would it be any use to the police?
I suspect just about any kind of gun would be ruined if it spent more than a few hours or days under water, though. I've tried to work on computer equipment that has been in floods and the damage is unreal. Even the plastics become faded, nasty, and simply won't clean up with any known chemical to look like new again. I suppose it might be possible to get the gun "working" again with some effort, but I have my doubts as to whether it would ever be any good.
In fact, I've recently been thinking about putting my guns that are in storage in some kind of zip-lock bag in case of a flood, especially my antiques that I'm using for investments.
