    It looks like gun banners are upset companies contracted to destroy confiscated firearms are only destroying the serialized parts and reselling the rest. Legally the companies are on firm ground...to me anyway. It's a free market and the parts being destroyed are only those that are legally considering the firearms. While I don't like the idea of such destruction when the locality can sell them and get some revenue from it rather than pay a company to destroy them...it is what it is.

    I love that companies are doing this...legally giving the localities a yuge middle finger.

    I thought the left was huge into recycling socially renewables?

    Think of all the carbon being saved by not destroying everything...

    I go to one site sometimes that I have in my favorites. They evidently buy confiscated pistols and long guns from the feds and they cut the receivers. They sell all as parts sets. Good if you happen to have a receiver or rebuilding an old rifle, shotgun or pistol. Prices are still high though especially on high dollar bolt actions and lever actions it seems.

    The tone of the article is very anti-gun (of course). But the idea, stated in the article, that any receiver/serialized part can easily be replaced is ridiculous.
    Repair/restoration is more like it.

    It pains me to know the part that's considered the firearm get destroyed, I personally think confiscated guns should be auctioned off to good homes if the guns had its serial number scratched off, make a new serial number for it it's not like we don't already to that to imported guns.

    Get some extra revenue into the PD for more training and maybe even better kit.

    It goes both ways though. When the confiscations and forced buy-backs come they'll buy back only the receiver and leave you with the rest. And pay accordingly.

    I love the way the "journalists" say you can "Simply" replace 1 part and vola,, you have a gun.
    Because Marlin 39 and Ruger mini receivers are so easy to obtain.

    Does "Organically Tanned" mean the "Moms Demand Action" peed on them? I want to see video proof first.;)

    Why would they think that a company would do work (destroy guns) for free ?
