Police and federal auctions that sell off confiscated items (cars, houses, boats, etc...They are making a ton of money, hopefully those sales go towards their operating budget.
I was wondering what if the LE agencies opened a gun shop in one or two major cities per state as a clearing house and sold off confiscated firearms, that for all intensive purposes are legal to own by Jane or Joe law abiding citizen. Whole new source of income for their constricted budgets.
If the gun was used in a crime, after whatever trial is over, they have the ability to wipe the gun clean (log the serial number as cleared). I'd have no problem owning a firearm used in a crime, same as no problem owning a nice car owned by a drug runner.
Just wonderin' about the possibilities.
