When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    Some kind of blockage over the images...

    The auction listing linked above is a flip book. Works fine for me. 

    TMZ has a slideshow, but the TMZ article is hyperbole anti-gun, and I did not want to subject this group the BS.

    I'm using a cheap RCA Raven tablet on DSL here at the ranch and it's slow but it works fine. I had no idea that he collected guns and he sure seemed to like Smith snubbies.

    Worked for me.
    There are some "really" good S&W 's
    In there may have to throw a bid or two in.

    Beats me, I've never seen anything quite like this...

    Works fine on my Chrome Book.  Some of the listed prices seem a bit low, but once bids come in my go through the roof

    Only thing that impressed me was the Rigby

    Some nice S&W and Colt revolvers in that collection.

    The early 57 with Cokes.
    The club gun....the one starting with the 0 in the serial number.
    The pre 27 even if refinished
    With the red Post front sight are some winners.

    I'd say he liked revolvers.

    The old Dean & Lewis radio show was pretty good. One needs to remember that much of old radio and tv was broadcast live. Acts like Jerry Lewis and those of his peers could ad-lib with split second timing. It's good he had a chance to enjoy the accumulation of some guns.

    Yes, I will agree.

    I dunno, there's a Rigby and a few Model 12 Winchesters, an 1100 Remington, and a Mark V in .257 WBY Mag. and a Weatherby 22 Semi that look pretty good. I figured he'd be an anti gunner, unless he's like some that want to take away our rights but keep their own because they think they're special. I don't know.

    Jerry Lewis was an avid gun enthusiast. He was one of the best quick draw artists, even gave classes in Hollywood

    Two things: I have a Sterling SS 22LR like that. For $400, I might even smuggle it into California for you. Why is a 4" Python illegal in Commiefornia? Hawk

    I would think that is a small number of the guns he really had. Dump the common ones & toss in a couple good ones to get the buyers there. A lot of us have way more guns than that & we aren't millionaires. ( at least I'm not ) My guess is a lot of manufacturers gave him special made guns just to have him help sell there product. I have even been given new things by companies that wanted me to test them & give them my honest opinion of there product.

    Yeah, I knew some of the older actors were pretty conservative. What happened to Hollywood?
