An interesting discussion. Here's a twist for you to ponder. A friend had a small house that he rented out to an older single man. The man passed away in the home and, after the authorities were done, the remainder of his relatives were allowed in to retrieve whatever they wanted. After they were done, he and I went through the house as he had made arrangements with the local fire department for them to use it for "practice". In our walk-through, we discovered a single-shot 20 gauge and a Marlin 60 .22LR rifle. We checked with the relatives and they had no interest in either gun so my friend kept the shotty and let me have the Marlin for my help in mowing the grass at this house. We both had FOID cards already (req. in Illinois) so no problems there. You never know WHAT you will find.
