There's not really anything being infringed. If you have your gun taken away, but are not convicted, then you have 60 days to submit a written request to have it returned. (A pretty reasonable amount of time IMO). If you do not claim it, then it will be sold. If you are convicted, it will just be sold.

Posting the text of the law really helped! Now ii can go back to ignoring the NYT. In AZ, we got the laws changed so that police must sell seized guns to dealers rather than to destroy them. That help police generate revenues and gives more inventory to dealers. One problem is that a lot of the guns have very little value.

UNCLAIMED is the key word here.

Some people here have the knee jerk reaction that the police are wrong, period. Don't even bother to read the story, the police are wrong. The people are given sufficient notice to claim their property and fail to do so, the police are wrong. Sometimes the dismissal comes with a condition the person surrender any claim to the property, but the police are wrong.

This is a practice that has been going on for quite some time in many agencies. Guns sold through FFL dealers. If you look on e-bay you will see a bunch of parts for sale by police agencies. Revolver barrels still attached to cut frames, these came from siezed/forfeited guns. The serial numbered frame has been destroyed, everything else is just parts. Murder guns are kept forever. We have at least 3 in our gun vault that killed cops. They will stay with us til the end of time.

But the cops are wrong.

The new law just addressed the issue in an official way. We all knew it was OK, the legislature just had to convince some knuckle headed administrators who thought they had to be destroyed.

Not every agency keeps murder guns forever. I've personally cleaned a blood's brain matter off of a 1911 for re-sale. Evidence box even had the bandanna in it.
The victims buddies caught up with the gunman in prison.
I've worked on others but that one is the kind of thing that sticks with you.

Not disagreeing with your statement or arguing your point in any way, just saying.

I agree with SSGSF

Who would believe the liberal BS presented by the NY Times in the beginning? We know they are so truthful and do not have a liberal anti gun agenda!!! And for sure NY probably destroys every weapon they can through their courts. The Idiots! They would love for people to believe that Texas and other pro gun states are following their lead! NOT!

I presume the victim's friends caught up with the killer BEFORE the gun was sold. Once a case is DONE WITH, the gun can be disposed of. Done with as in can never be brought up again. The problem with this thought is people who want to come back 20 years after the killer is dead and "clear his name". Is it EVER really done with?
