State Sen. Russell Pearce, who authored Arizona’s anti-immigration law, SB1070, stuck a provision in the bill that “pushes” local police departments to resell confiscated weapons to authorized gun dealers. Not satisfied that one Phoenix, Arizona suburb, Peoria, found a loophole in his law and passed a measure to continue destroying the weapons, a moonstruck Pearce now plans to “fix” that loophole in the next legislative session.
I left the following comment. I wonder if it will every appear.
Unfortunately Mr Dunning, your statement about gun shows is entirely false. Authorized agents are FFL holders such as gun stores. FFL holders may NOT sell a gun without an NICS check even at a gun show. Your so-called "loophole" is simply a private sale from one individual to another. And even those are limited by law. You may not sell to a known felon nor may you sell to anyone from out of state.
The only benefit of destroying confiscated guns is to the gun manufacturers.
