Guns are incredibly durable products. With even the most basic care, a GLOCK 19 should remain fully functional into the twenty-nineties. Same goes for every other firearm in your collection. But there comes a time in every gun’s life when its life is over. At that point, without restoration, the gun must die. Just as I want to be cremated, I don’t mind the idea of my defunct guns being pulverized. But that, of course, is not what the GUNBUSTERS Firearms Pulverizer System (above) is for. We noted the gun grinder’s introduction last year. Now the thing has been patented. And it’s just as scary as it was before it received U.S. government protection. Caution!

Chesterfield, Mo. (December 2014) – GUNBUSTERS, LLC is proud to announce the issuance of U.S. Patent No. 8,890,994 for their revolutionary GUNBUSTERS® Firearms Pulverizer System. The system provides law enforcement and governmental agencies with a safe, simple and secure means to dispose of unneeded confiscated and surrendered firearms. A main feature is the documentation process, wherein the agency is provided with a DVD showing the pulverization of each individual firearm.
With the issuance of their first patent, GUNBUSTERS is ready to move forward with their plan to establish a limited number of licensees to provide regional pulverization services to law enforcement and governmental organizations. In most instances the license will be for one or more states. A few states, such as California, Florida, New York and Texas, may have multiple license holders with specific geographic boundaries.
The ideal candidate is an existing law enforcement distributor, gunsmith, or retiring law enforcement armorer with regional contacts and extensive firearms knowledge.
The sight of a machine enabling the mass destruction of firearms sends a shiver down my spine. Of course, it’s not the inanimate object that’s evil, but people who misuse it. Still . . .
