So that they can live on and be appreciated by decent people? Is that wrong? And then what if an 'anti-gun' reporter caught wind and wrote a story that 'police departments were profiting from gun buy back programs' and 'putting guns back on the street'? Is that what's happening here?
... ask any Cop who's worked narcotics interdiction about the pressure from the brass to make "seizure" cases, ask them about targeting expensive cars on the interstate for unconstitutional searches because the well too wife driving it might have a little "coke" habit and enough onboard to justify the theft of her Mercedes.

Seattle's last buy back had dealers set up tables across from the cops offering appraisals and purchase offers to people who'd shown up to turn in pistols for a $25 gift card.

We need to be doing thiss at every buy back... We also need to be buying every $15 Lorcin we can find and turning them in for proffit... AND to screw the system by depleting the buyback funds as quickly as possible.

... and we should never accept a system that incentivised COPS to proffit from the property they steal.

... even if it does mean that some nice guns get melted down.

I certainly hope they went thru all the

paperwork I always have to go through.

Where are all the 4473s?
