"Gun Librarian" gets 7 year jail term

Pete writes "While not taking place in a library setting, this JSOnline story is interesting, "In law enforcement lingo, Chambers, now 23, was in charge of the group's "gun library." Whenever one of its members needed a weapon, they would pick it up from him, according to the U.S. attorney's office. Later, they would return it.""

They used a National Security Letter :)

Gun libraries..

There are of course legitimate gun libraries. Cabela's sporting goods has gun libraries at some of its stores.

I have a number of completely legal firearms myself, so I guess I could be considered a gun librarian. I don't however loan them out to people to commit crimes. I don't loan them out at all they are under lock and key unless in use.

Re:Gun libraries..

Making the analogy to libraries is interesting. The view on owning versus borrowing comes up. I'd rather own guns, but am happy to both borrow and own books. I suppose if I were a criminal I would want to just borrow a gun.

And another thing.

It's stores like Cabela's that keep Old Western Scrounger happily working. .300 Rook?! .50 Express (.50-95)?!

Did he keep records of who borrowed what and when? And if he did should he be made to reveal his patron records to the authorities? ;)
