Does anyone remember the news reporting police selling confiscated guns?

Recommended Posts

I vaguely remember over the summer, police being accused of selling confiscated guns illegally. Not sure if I am correct, but if you have info shoot me a link please. Just a topic of conversation as some departments from what I have read were actually think about legally doing this...

 

Thnx

There have been instances over the years of individuals stealing weapons fromevidence and the selling them.. As far as "Legally", I don't believe it's lawful for any NJ Agency to sell off any firearms. I recall when we first got our Glocks in 1992, we had to have a certification from the dealer who handled the transaction that any firearms we "traded in" had to be sold outside the US. IIRC all of our revolvers went to Somewhwere in europe, that werent purchased by officers..when we tradrd out Gen II Glocks for Gen III in IIRC 2006, they had the same stipulation..although there was no opportunity for us to buy our own then.

All things aside, is there any difference between police confiscating a car and auctioning it versus auctioning a gun?

 

In my eyes I do not.

 

it USED to be pretty common for stuff, including firearms to be auctioned off once any cases were Adjudicated..outside of NJ, I'm sure that still happens

it's possible they changed things...All I know is that at the times I was involved with the trade-ins with my Dept, lawman was told they couldnt sell Our guns in the US. At the time we were told it was an AG directive..since there have been a few since then it wouldnt surprise me to see changes..at least that one is for the Good. Hell I Wish i'd been given the opportunity to buy my gun when I retired..it's not like they needed it since we had about 30 spares between the normal inventory of "Just in case" guns and the ones from the rest of the guys who retired.

This brings up a related question: if someone's guns get confiscated on suspicion, which is then proven to be incorrect (the person was innocent), how long does it take to actually get your guns back? I've heard rumors it's a nightmare of red tape and waiting?

    • Well, I need every frame I can get for a 280hz monitor. Currently running 3900X, 32GB RAM, x570 board, GTX 1080, and a m.2 drive. Just barely hacking it in some competitive FPS games. Not netting the 280 fps without dumbing down some settings, and I only drop them to a point, and even with that, I barely hit 280. Most games I hover around 120-150 maxed out settings. My card is dated, but I was waiting on the 30 series. I really want a 3080 or 6800 XT. The additional frames you get with the 5000 series CPUs has made that an easy choice for me as well. All I have to do is upgrade the BIOS and swap out the CPU.  Then I’ll throw the 3900X in a new build for the wife.  
    • Not sure why you’d need a 5000 series cpu.  Want....sure.  Need? If you’re gaming, a 3800x or 3900x is more than fine. I’d focus on a gpu and better display. Maybe you render stuff with Maya?  I’d use Zync’s hosted rendering and get a 24 hour job done in 24 minutes.  You get 300 host-hours free on sign up and the only limit is the job can only be spread across 50 virtual machines. If you just want the latest stuff and have money to burn..that’s cool too. I just built a new system today. Bought some of what I needed at Microcenter in Conshohocken, PA. 3800xt cpu EVGA 2080Ti  (Newegg) 32 Gig ram 1 TB M.2 ssd Asus x570 motherboard HP Omen 27” 165 Hz 4K display.  (Bestbuy) This display is incredible.  Noticeable difference side by side with a 144 Hz Dell Gsync. Already had a new case and PS.   The total cost of what I got at Microcenter was actually a little less than NewEgg.Prices But if you want the 3000 series Nvidia gpus or the new AMD cpus, you’re going to wait and also pay a premium.  If you wanted a super high end gpu, I’d SLI a pair of 2070 Supers.  But even that, imho..isn’t worth it.
    • Do you think they might also bring back the Model 15 one day?
    • Not true.... You cannot shoot alone and rent a firearm..... if you bring your own firearm you may shoot alone   https://www.rtsponline.com/range-rules/    
    • At RTSP, and many other ranges, the policy is that you can't shoot alone without an FID.
