The 9/11 Revolver — A Memento of Bravery and Sacrifice
Report based on article in NRABlog.com
Today, on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack, it’s appropriate that we remember the brave public safety personnel who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Officer Walter Weaver of the NYPD, was one of the many police officers and fire fighters who rushed into the Twin Towers to help save lives.
This stainless steel revolver was recovered from the World Trade Center ruins at Ground Zero. It was identified to have been carried by Officer Weaver on September 11, 2001. He was last seen on the 6th floor of the North Tower attempting to free passengers on an elevator. Officer Weaver’s family donated the gun to the NRA National Firearms Museum, where it now holds a place of honor as a reminder of the law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line daily.
Officer Walter Weaver’s revolver can be found in Gallery 13, Firearm Traditions for Today, at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
