Never slow to do the bidding of the NRA, Gov Jan Brewer signed into law a bill passed by AZ's bat-**** legislators, protecting GUNS from destruction at the hands of local authorities:

Arizona bill requiring resale of buyback guns signed

AZ already had a law on the books prohibiting cities and counties from destroying "seized" weapons. This new wrinkle prohibits them from crushing weapons VOLUNTARILY surrendered by citizens in "buy back" programs. Those weapons must now be resold.

Who new the lives of those harmless, cuddly widddo guns needed protection from those big bad forces of evil, who would crush and destroy them. Ever' gun de-stroyed is a e-rosion of someone's potential freedom to own one, dammit! Amurika!!!

So now, if you are a citizen of AZ, concerned about gun violence, and wishing to make sure YOUR guns are never used in a crime... well, about all you can do is go out onto your porch with a hammer and smashing them to bits yourself (Wait... is THAT still legal) If you turn them in to the cops in exchange for movie tickets or something, they WILL be put back into circulation in YOUR community, regardless what YOUR local community wants, by dictate of Der Stadt!

Hey, I thought the Right was for LESS central government, and MORE local control? Not so much, huh? That only counts when LOCAL control is all you have- let the Right get CENTRAL control again someday, and watch 'em go to town!

Stay classy, AZ... stay classy

Why have a buy back program if they are going to be resold? Stupid idea!

Do you think that destroying a gun does little more than have another take its place by newly manufacturing it? Not to mention what good does it do to destroy some antique gun that is a piece of history? You liberals intelligence never ceases to amaze me at how low you can go. So if an old colt 1911 is destroyed and a new one is made just how does this change anything? You are bitching over a non issue. Destroying a gun is the stupid thing.

It's good to see a state with some common sense legislation for a change. Why destroy valuable, collector's firearms over some silly, feel good, warm and fuzzy program? They will be resold all nice and legal like, through licensed FFL dealers, with those "backgrouuuund checks" that make libbies feel all warm and fuzzy.

Good for Arizona!

It is infantile to want to destroy a tool simply because someone else abused that tool. If some idiot where to kill someone with a hammer, would you take your hammer to the police station and turn it in to be destroyed? Which just goes to prove the adage true, you cannot fix stupid.

You know, even better use of our resources would be to buy up a bunch of guns, then melt them all down, so people have to go out and buy new guns, which have to be manufactured and sold.

Sorta reminds me of a thing called cash for clunkers, what a great use of our tax dollars.
