When has anyone ever bought guns from the police?
1. Guns are more likely to "fall into the wrong hands" when lame-brain newspapers publish where they can be found to be targeted for theft, and
2. No rifle that costs a person $2K is going to "become unwanted in a home".
Sheesh - you make it sound like a hampster bought for a child...
Sub-Headline from Yahoo News:
“While firearms laws are stricter than those of the U.S., gun-related homicides occur at a higher rate in the Philippines.”
“Excess guns”. LOL! What planet is this clown from? Well, at least he’s getting those empty, disposible anti-tank tubes off the streets. That’s good I guess. We can’t have somebody getting beat to death with one of those.
The chief of the Los Angeles Police Department is an ignorant jackass!
Criminals don't apply to buy guns to use in crimes... get fingerprinted, go through background checks etc.
Finally, if this jackass can't prevent the burglary of my legal gun, how can I rely on him to prevent me losing my life?

Years ago I went to a police sale of confiscated goods. Lots of people showed up and it was dull. Along about the afternoon suddenly, it was like an electric current ran through the crowd! THEY WERE PREPARING TO SELL THE GUNS! They surged forward and the sale began.
I saw junk guns go for new prices! Broken guns the same! The audience lost all sense of cost as they bid up the price on junk!
I could not believe it.
Many years later I talked to a pawn shop owner who had gone to another auction to buy some guns. He bought none and said he wished he had brought his guns there to sell as the crowd bid them up way beyond his price.
Something about a gun auction makes the crowd go crazy. All Federal and state laws were obeyed in these auctions.
