It’s really fucked up that whoever will buy it is probably doing so as a collectors item.
I bet Clarence Thomas’ homie is ready to make some bids
Seriously messed up. How about the state police just forgo the few dollars they will make on the sale and destroy any seized weapon used in a homicide or violent crime. I agree with other posters that some sick folks will simply see this as an opportunity to buy a ‘trophy’.
>In February, the mayor ordered local police to temporarily disable seized weapons and affix warning labels before handing them over to state police for resale.
>The labels, which bear some resemblance to the health warnings on cigarette packages, say: “Deadly weapons like this one caused 146 homicides by gunshot wound in Louisville in 2022. Fourteen of those deaths were children.”
>”Under current Kentucky law, the assault rifle that was used to murder five of our neighbours and shoot at rescuing police officers will one day be auctioned off,” Mr Greenberg said at Tuesday’s news conference. “Think about that. That murder weapon will be back on the streets.”
Who is doing PR for Louisville? Unbelievably tone-deaf for the victims
My state destroys guns used in any crime. Seems like that should be the standard.
