    Good point, such a collection does not come lightly.

    I use to work in a gun shop. There was a small group of customers who collected guns that were used in a death. Our local city police would sell guns used in suicides to dealers (if the family did not want them). One such collector admonished the shop owner for having cleaned off the blood of a firearm used in a suicide before he put it up for sale. Those collectors preferred the guns with all original “effects”.

    I got a nickle P7M10 in the box in one of our PD gun trades, it was a mortgage fraud case, also has a Lambo and a few other high end cars in the evidence room, same guy.

    I have tons of old evidence guns...a few of the worst I had to clean old(most guns sat for a year or more) dried up brains off them, amazing the police didnt at least hose them off. Also...more than a few guns were still loaded.

    That's just F'n weird.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    If it were up to me, I'd destroy all firearms used in all homicides, suicides, and murders. It makes no sense to clean those guns and sell them to anyone.

    Got to disagree, I don't think they should be destroyed. Im not superstitious, so to me they are just guns regardless of their history. But cleaning should be mandatory. And they should not be sold or marketed as crime guns. Maybe just "police auction" guns.
    Anyone who wants the "effects" of a tragedy on their gun probably shouldn't be armed.
    Maybe the 4473 should have a line titled "are you a sick [email protected]*k ?" Yes or No

    @Vincent04 So you blame the gun? It's an inanimate object. Should we burn down all houses that someone died in?

    @Vincent04
    I completely understand why it would make you uncomfortable, and I respect your choice not to own one.
    I do not understand or respect someone wanting a murder/suicide gun.
    (unless of exceptional historical significance, E.g. Oswald's Carcano)
    Just don't think destruction should be mandatory.
