Sales of Seized Firearms?

The L.A. Times is reporting that Colorado Springs, CO is considering selling seized firearms rather than destroying them as is the national norm. Citing that the same is done with other forms of seized property (autos and cars), it seems like a refreshing change from the normal “disarm the people” attitude of many large city police departments.

For the L.A. Times, the article is fairly middle of the road. Furthermore, given that some priceless collectable firearms have either been seized in drug raids or “bought back” by Police departments, this provides an outlet for these weapons.

Now if the Army would just send us some Iraqi and Khyber Pass AK kits, I’d be a really happy camper!

Until next time!!!

Anyone happen to know what the Oregon counties or districts do with seized firearms? I'm guessing destruction, but I've always just assumed that, haven't actually checked into it...

Honestly I'm not sure. I think Clackamas County keeps a few - there are some at the public safety range.
