Police selling guns from buyback program
If people don't know the true value of their guns, that's their problem.*
I've often wondered about this. I've seen representative photos of gun purchased at buybacks - usually rusted out hunks of junk. But I know there have to be some guns that are of significant value, and it seems wasteful to just destroy such guns.
Kind of defeats the purpose of the buyback, though.
*To a point. I hope an official would have the decency to tell a little old window that a fine Merkel shot gun is worth more than $75, should such an anomaly ever occur....

there goes the argument of getting the guns off the streets.

Libtards exposed. Who would have thunk it?

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
So they buy guns to get them off the streets to sell them to put them back on the streets???

Firearms in particular handguns seized in investigations and subsequent prosecutions are are either destroyed or used by the law enforcement agency (training) which seized them BY STATE LAW. I have seen some very nice handguns go to the furnaces. Shoulder weapons are auctioned.
Now, Houston has never had a buy back program, probably because it does not work, so, I do not know what would occur there.
