All hail the most important thing ever

In Arizona you cannot even abort an unwanted gun.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill into law that bars cities and counties from destroying guns turned over to police at community buyback events and instead requiring that they be resold.

The bill signed Monday was supported by Republicans and the National Rifle Association and opposed by Democrats.

Backers in the GOP-controlled Legislature argued that destroying any property turned over to the government is a waste of taxpayer resources.

Democrats argued that destroying the guns keep weapons owners no longer want off the streets.

Since destroying property is a waste of taxpayer resources, I will look forward to their drug resale program.

For being the "party of business", the GOP and their part owners, the gun manufactures(NRA), they have no business sense.
If I were in the business of selling NEW guns,I would want very much all the USED guns I could get destroyed. That creates a shitload less competition for my new ones.

If I was a dealer in guns I think I would sue the state for being in the business that is best handled by private industry, completely in line with A. Wol McStupid's Circular A-76 that mandates just that.


There are plenty of dealers in used guns in Arizona, so what about the gun owner who sells his gun because the stated intent of the buyer is to destroy that gun?

They are depriving people of the right to dispose of their property as they see fit. If I own a gun and want to destroy it that is my business. This move sounds like tyranny to me. Tea Partiers here is you chance to water that tree of liberty with your blood for an actual incidence of the government depriving people of their right.

As Monty Python said, "Every gun is sacred..."

Plus, of course, if the guns are resold to criminals, they can then sell then back to the gummint, buy em at the next auction, sell em back, ad nauseam.

And I bet the gummint sells em for less than they pay for em, too, also.

apparently the whole idea of getting guns off the street was lost on brewer. she's a narrow sheen on the pond scum that is nutjob republican thinking.

Since govmint competing with bidness would be EEEVULLL, the guns would most likely be sold en masse to dealers.
And being that this is Arizona, many would end up south of the border fueling the drug cartel wars in Mexico. Brilliant plan.

Thus making the government a gun dealer. Don't stop until we're Somalia.
