    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Some of the arguments against this are absolute idiocy.

    Good read. I understand the concerns about putting the weapons back on the street. However, the guns are tools. The people using them for crime are the problem. Plus, it seems as if the money is helping LE

    Look at who the reporter keeps going to for reference material, and insight on firearms.
    Tells me all I need to know about the reporter, and what agenda they are following.

    From article;
    Other officials and national gun watchdog groups, however, continue to voice concerns that the program makes available more cheap guns that find their way into the hands of criminals.
    end

    Mayors against illegal guns.
    They didn't state if the "illegal firearms from Ky." were ones that have already gone through the state auction or not.
    Also, who are you going to believe, the lawyer who says

    QUOTE; “In my experience, the guns that end up there are dangerous weapons, poorly made, often damaged or really don’t have value unless you’re looking for an inexpensive firearm,” said one critic, Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders. “And if you’re looking for a cheap gun, you’re usually up to no good.”

    OR THIS

    QUOTE; Before 1998, most of Kentucky’s police forces destroyed weapons they confiscated. Then State Rep. Bob Damron, D-Nicholasville, proposed the bill to stop the destruction of guns after police in his rural district complained that they were forced to destroy better guns than the weapons they carried on duty

    So, who's lying??

    The lawyer or the police chief.
    Were the police in that city REALLY carrying junky, poorly made firearm's.

    ^^^^^^^^^Good point^^^^^^^^^^^^^


    Funny how all these anti gun outfits are against this practice, but they obviously have no problem with the police agencies keeping all the booty from the so called "War on Drugs".

    Why don't they demand the police destroy all the houses cars boats that are taken?

    The only point I could see conceeding on MIGHT be the firearms involved in a murder, but that is debatable.

    Great article, thanks for posting. As usual, the 'Antis' can only fall back to the position of emotional arguments that make no sense, and faulty studies that they pay for.

    Very true.

    Also, from what I got from the article is that the auctions are for dealers only, not the general public.

    There's few, if ANY, "illegal" guns involved. There's only people who have become criminals by illegal actions with legal guns. The guns have no action or intent. Let the LEOs cherry pick the confiscated firearms for official use. Auction off the remainder to non-restricted citizens. Use the money to neuter & euthanize career violent offenders (to the extent, of course, allowed by law).
    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

    There numbers sound kind of odd to me. Fresno's Gun "building" has over 22,000 guns in it at any given time. Most are taken during Probation sweeps, or Domestic Violence arrests. Another huge source is people turning in guns that they no longer want. Fresno county cuts up between 75 and 100 per month. back in the days of cash and carry Fresno used to sell off guns that were not used in a crime. At some point they realised that they could make a better profit if they sent them to a larger county [ like LA county] with more people bidding. LA county responded with "If you try this again We will dump every gun we get in your county and at penny's on the dollar!" That's what ended gun sales in Fresno. Skip forward to 2012 and every gun needs to be sold through an FFL and there's no reason it couldn't be done again. DR

    Unfortunately this is one area the anti's were successful here in Indiana. Used to be that the police would auction off confiscated friearms to the general public as part of their confiscated goods auctions. Then they went ahead and started auctioning them through local auction houses. The anti's raised a fuss, so they started auctioning them to only FFL dealers; that wasn't good enough for the anti's so now they are destroyed.
