Cop shops confiscate hundreds of guns a month in their localities as evidence in crime investigations. What happens after that is all over the board. Everything from death by smelter to trading them to dealers for duty guns to resale to the law-abiding public. The question of what to do with the heaters in Nashville is, um, heating up. It’s illegal to destroy the guns in the volunteer state but the NPD doesn’t want to let them go. As a result, they’re building up a good sized inventory. Some victims’ families attach talisman-like properties to guns used to kill, demanding they go down like Arnold in Terminator 2. But in places like Kentucky, auctioned arms bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars. Cash that comes in pretty handy in an age of austerity. Why shouldn’t police departments sell the guns back to citizens? You got a problem wit dat?
