Um, did someone try to rob the stagecoach in Crown Heights, Brooklyn? From the NYPD’s 77th Precinct:
#OneLessGun on the streets of #CrownHeights today thanks to our Response Officers who arrested two males last night in possession of this illegal firearm. Despite the effects of the pandemic citywide, gun arrests have increased as we continue our practice of precision policing. pic.twitter.com/yo6sd8yY7K

Is that a 22 single action? My great grandfather lost it in Nebraska. Dropped off his wagon train
