#1. That is what I expected. i.e. It is loaded. #2. In many places a dog will get put down if it bites a person, even if the person is teasing it. If the dog did what it is suppose to do, then that is a different story. #3. I am thinking that the gun may not have been really lost. I am wondering if the gun was taken from the motorcycle. This would be theft and the first story is just BS that was invented while they were looking for the person with the gun. When I found a wallet in the road, I turned it in to the proper people. I would probably do the same for a gun, but that means the wallet or gun would be in my possession for a while until it got turned in.
