    Near the top of some webpage:

    "A person commits an offense if he... knowingly possesses a firearm or other dangerous weapon in a court facility or knowingly causes a firearm or other dangerous weapon to be present in a court facility."

    Is something missing between "or" and "other dangerous weapon"? Would "a firearm or SOME other dangerous weapon" be better?

    Welcome to the forum, northmt.

    The sentence is OK as it is. In normal (i.e., non-legal contexts) both 'some' and 'any' would also be acceptable.
