Default UPDATE Stolen revolver, I think

Ok, I don't know what to do here. Many of you will remember the post below:

Quote:
My original post: 05-07-2010 http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f12/economic-problems-hit-home-26918/

My sister comes up to me today, crying, and tells me that she is going to lose her house, can't make the monthly payment, and she has sold all her guns. I was shocked. I asked "why hasn't [insert her husband's name] paid the rent?" She tells me that he was fired three months ago in order for the company to cut costs. What's worse is that she sold her guns to a gun store that ripped her off. She got $850 total for: an IWI Jericho in .40 S&W, a Springfield XD tactical in 9mm, a Taurus model 85, a Taurus Model 608, and an EAA Witness Match 9mm.

I calmed her down and we talked for a while. I paid her morgage payment by phone, gave her $2,000, and my S&W m67 with some ammo for the house (they live in a shady area). Then I told her to wait at my house with my niece until she calmed down saying that "I didn't want her driving upset," while I was going to get dinner. Anyways, I went to her house and gave her husband a piece of my mind. I know it is not his fault for losing his job, but he should have [blanking] told me. He simply said he felt like less of a man and was embarressed. I yelled at him for letting his pride get in the way and he had to calm me down.

I talked with him a little and I think that were are ok. He was still kind of upset though. I am taking him to the career center in our area tomorrow to look for another job. IMO, There is no excuss for him not looking sooner. I mean waiting 3 months to even start looking, please!

I'll try to cut short my rant, so, I'll finish saying he and I picked up dinner and when back to my house for the night. They went home in the morning.

Again, sorry for the rant, but I have always been protective of my sister,
thanks for listening.
Anyways, I found a IWI Jericho in .40 S&W. It was my sister's favorite gun before our economy and her husband's idiocy lead to her selling all of her guns. Well, I was so excited that I bought it and drove right to her house. I asked to see my S&W m67-1 that I lent her. I was going to pretend that I was upset about the condition it was kept in and I was taking it back. And then only to reveal the Jericho.

Well, when I asked to see it she started crying. She said that her husband sold it a few weeks after I gave it to them. Now, I made sure to tell them that I was loaning them the weapon. I knew her husband's character so I specifically told him "I am loaning you this weapon it is not a gift, if I hear that you pawn it or anything I'll have you arrested."

My sister was begging me not to call the police. I don't know what to do.
He was at work and I just left....

What should I do?

What would you do?

I am just ... ugh ... there's not even a word...

I'd beat him, then get a bat and do it again. He's a POS. Then call the cops.

He did sell it to a gun shop, I asked that. So, there is no chance that it will show up at a crime scene and then come back to haunt me. If I report it to the cops will my sister get in trouble?

mesinge2, unless your sister backs your assertion that the gun was loaned to her and her husband took it from her custody by theft, I think you're stuck. You may be able to go to the police and tell them the gun is missing from wherever you choose a location, but what happens if the gun turns up in a pawn shop and they have a record of your sister or B.I.L pawning it? Now you are in the middle.

If it was sold to a private party, here in Fla, sales are not recorded nor are guns registered in a private party sale. The buyer has every reason to believe the B.I.L was the owner and bought the gun.

mesinge2, IMO, you're action is a civil suit against your B.I.L. whether you want to pursue it would be up to you.

I know it's legal in Michigan to loan a gun to another person who holds a valid CPL, I'm not sure of that here in Fla. I'm heading out of town again but I'll check through some of the statute books I have when I get back. If it isn't legal, I'd be quiet and chalk it up to "shame on you".
