Is anyone else disturbed that L.A. apparently makes no effort to trace guns "purchased" at buy-backs? About the only reason I can think of to sell something for 10 cents on the dollar is if its stolen. It would seem that L.A. has an obligation to protect the property rights of the actual owners by at least paying lip service to some sort of hearing. -or is it just me?

This article claimed that LAPD will be checking to see if they are stolen, but good luck getting them back.

What will happen to the guns collected: Any gun that is not lost or stolen will be “destroyed” by the LAPD.

"Destroyed"?

Care to hazard a guess as to what, exactly, "destroyed" means?

Makes me think of a Jamaican Switch with a Texas Twist plus a Pigeon Drop...

No questions asked. Gee what a perfect way for a murderer to destroy incriminating evidence, just turn the gun over in a gun-buyback and have the police destroy it for you!

Maybe these are the new Fast and Furious guns. A lot easier than setting up straw purchases.
