    According to the gun control crowd, guns are people and are killing everybody. Had nothing to do with the person pulling the trigger.

    I don't see what you are all worked up over Josef.

    I understand the rationale behind having a gun buy back...to keep the guns out of the wrong hands...but why be opposed to selling them to a FFL if that is the law?

    The FFL must perform background checks, so the guns will be in the hands of law abiding owners.

    What is the problem?

    If you read the story, it is technically illegal for the local government to destroy anything surplus or abandoned without attempting to first sell it.

    Rathner says Arizona state law forces local governments to sell seized or abandoned property to the highest bidder.


    "If property has been abandoned to the police, then they are required by ARS 12-945 to sell it to a federally licensed firearms dealer, and that's exactly what they should do," he says.

    Correct, there are no grounds for a lawsuit.

    The problem is that these gun owners chose to give their guns to the police. They knew their guns were going to be destroyed. Why does the NRA have to stick their nose in this? And according to the AZ attorney general, this is not a violation of the law, becasue these guns are being handed over voluntarily.

    it would seem to me that the property was sold/ traded, and therefore this asshat from the nra is completely wrong, since the law applies only to seized or abandoned property.
