Most tempered glass has an etching indicating such in a corner, at least it does when used in fenestration. Not sure whether that would apply to a mirror...

Guns are supposed to be dangerous. If yours is not dangerous you need to take it to a gunsmith and have it repaired.

I was told that cutting really old glass is very difficult. This was after I failed at cutting an old mirror. Not tempered just old
