    Isn't it that, because the parts would compete with the parts that would be sold through places selling parts, the parts must be destroyed?

    Scottinthegrove - Here is a link to the destruction requirements: ATF Destruction Requirements There is no reason he couldn't have stripped and kept everything but the receiver and been in compliance with the destruction requirements. What good is it doing to cut a plastic stock in half? In my opinion, it's just silly and wasteful.

    I'm "guessing"...but betting ATF.

    I've been privy to the destruction of A LOT of firearms, at the ATF requirements.......and that looks like.....well....it.

    Not saying anything other than......it "could have" been done differently, but then again....the actual guy over seeing .....well....you can read into it.

    What's with the orange handled Smith & Wessons? Why'd they get cut up too? No reason they couldn't have been sold.

    I am not 100% sure, but is they were guns sold to a federal agency at say $1 a piece as we're selectfire ARS here to a Sheriff's Dept.. Rules under that particular program MIGHT be different. I would like to know the true answer. Especially on the Revolvers..

    Its just taxpayer money, very easy to throw away and replace. Not worth the effort to part them out when you can just raise taxes. I see this in the corporate world too for video games. Often times it more profitable for a company to destroy their own unsold goods than it is to sell them at FULL MSRP because of the tax benefits. Its a terrible waste and doesn't make sense, but government policies rarely do.

    That's why I asked. Advising the dept of the legal requirements involved in disposing of the NFA firearms is one thing. Advising them to do something not required by law, and a waste of taxpayer dollars is another thing entirely.

    Makes me want to vomit.
