    On the other hand, put the same weapon back to good use in police work, police training, or put it in the hand of some deserving old lady for a personal defense weapon, and it suddenly becomes not only ethical, but admirable.

    Your reasoning is somewhat akin to the stigma put on a home where someone has committed suicide. Some people would say "burn it because it is cursed." That is why Texas does not require disclosure of the prior suicide because it still can be a good home -- the same as a former murder weapon can become a good useful firearm in the right hands.

    And when that personal defense weapon given to some old lady is taken away from her and used against her in her own murder? Then the courts get ahold of how the old lady got her gun that killed her?

    I dont have a problem with it being for police work/training but I dont think it would do us gun owners a good service to have a handgun reappear as evidence in court again after being handed to a civilian.

    What a load of PR propaganda. If you look, they started torching a couple other guns trigger guards. And you leave the wood and rubber grips on to smolder? If you really want to ruin a Smith revo quick, open the cylinder, and cut the top strap. Just a staged photo to tick us off, and send a bunch of campaign contributions to the wrong people. I hope torch boy was wearing his Tommy Bahama sunglasses, and burned his retinas to charcoal.

    But I'm feeling much better now.

    If that handgun happened to be the one my father bought me 45 years ago and later got stolen why is it wrong to return it to me?

    I'm a big fan of the Makarov, and when I saw these pics on another forum, I just went "Oh the Humanity!"

    Absolutely nothing. But no one mentioned returning the firearms to their rightful owners.

    Gun buy backs, no questions asked. Do they check if weapons were used in a crime? Do they check if they have been stolen? Or do they just destroy them without caring where they have been or what they were used for?

    That falls right into "the gun did it" mentality. WTH?

    That is exactly my point! If a gun appears into a court more than once for a crime, especially if its murder, dont you think the jury and public are gonna see it just that way???

    All I am saying is I dont think it a wise idea to GIVE guns back to just anyone or to allow just anyone to PURCHASE a gun that has been used in a murder or crime.

    Give it back to its rightful owner. Use it a s police service gun. Use it for training but dont just give it to someone arbitrarily who may not have any training on handgun use or is too old to possibly even use the damn thing.
    If that person who received the handgun were to be involved in something as nasty as a murder, whether committing or is a victim of, that gun will be ammunition against all of us lawful gun owning citizens.

    Yeah, it sux seeing nice guns get destroyed but hell, you cannot own them all! You have yours and can get more.

    Likewise, we could say that no gun should ever be sold to a civilian, new or used, because they in fact do occasionally appear as evidence in court.

    Geez, the logic overwhelms me!

    I hope you are not terribly overwhelmed here, but you are missing the point. I am not talking about someone owning a gun they purchased for themselves. I am talking about public reaction to THE COURTS, THE LAW, THE POLICE, giving or selling guns to the public. Guns that HAVE ALREADY appeared in court.

    Personally, I have no problem with it and it would be a way to purchase a nice gun that might be unaffordable any other way. However, you and me are not typical of "the public".

    I just think that that would bring down a crapstorm of public outcry that might bring further legislation against gun ownership in general.
