The news story shared is, however, genuine. At least in the sense of they actually said that rather than actually representing reality.

 
Yes, I did see that it was an actual 'news' story.  I guess each locality has different protocols for dealing with students allegedly making death threats, but teachers, counselors, and psychologists are generally required to report them to the parents and the authorities.  I'm reasonably sure that the police who seized that stuff knew what it was and what it wasn't, but I assume that whoever wrote that blurb for the news organization didn't bother to verify the facts with the police or just saw that picture and flew with it.

This just drifted thru my Facebook feed:
If you answered with any number higher than one...no points for you. That pump-action gallery gun (the rifle with wooden stocks to the left of the samurai sword) is an actual firearm, a .22. The rest are airsoft guns (toys that shoot plastic pellets), air guns/BB guns, bows or crossbows, and some knives. That's right, one actual firearm.

So a local TV news outfit is UTTERLY ignorant of what they're reporting on, and are doing their best to start a moral panic and ruin some high school kid's life. Nothing new here. The reason I posted this here is I'm genuinely curious about what Bloomberg is calling "ghost guns".

He says there are hundreds of them here, 'in "cloak mode" along with the magazine clips.' (sic) Is this something only he can see? Are ghost guns similar to actual ghosts, that is...imaginary?

Or does it even matter what he says, so long as it gets the attention of a cooperative media?

 
I have no familiarity with this episode whatsoever, but I'm inferring that Bloomberg is alleging that the airsoft guns etc have been or could be modified to fire actual ammo, yet pass muster as being just a toy*. Again, with no awareness of this case, maybe the kid threatened that. I fully concede that "cloak mode" leads me to think I'm overthinking it.
 
But if he only has a .22, what's with all the other ammo? 
 
*based on the definition of a "ghost gun" as one that's untraceable, usually due to being homemade.
 
edit: Good catch

This is my model 1885 Winchester. It was made in 1890. It was obviously a custom ordered piece in it's day. It has all the add on bells and whistles offered in the catalogue from it's day plus you may notice the small tab on the bottom of the butt stock where there is a four section cleaning rod stored inside the butt. I haven't found another model 1885 with this feature in over three years of researching this gun. My late step father claimed it was appraised at 12 thousand dollars when he inherited it back in the late 1980's. Local gun dealers agree with me that the value has increased since then and we guess it to be around 15 thousand now. Could go way over that in the right auction.

Now the part where you start saying I am dreaming.

There are four missing Teddy Roosevelt guns that I have read about but know nothing about what caliber, models or the circumstances which Teddy's guns came to be missing. As I have said before this gun was obviously a custom order purchased by someone of stature back in 1890. To have a feature such as the cleaning rod kit added would indicate to me that someone had an in with the gunsmiths at Winchester. This was not some working mans gun.

I am not claiming that I do have Teddy's gun just yet but am not wanting to sell this one before I am sure I don't either.

If anyone has any information or suggestions where I can find info about this gun please let me know.

I am about to make the trip to Cody Wyoming to the Buffalo Bill museum where they have the most complete records of pre 1920 Winchesters that I know of.
