Where can I find information on the sale of the weapons? Who is selling the weapons ? Does the law require the selling of weapons to the public or is this a closed sale to local police and dealers?

I believe the intent was that the sale would be from police to dealers.

It would be a county auction and some depts would sell them at the same time as they would sell cars or other property but in any case it would be a county by county decision. The new law would allow them to take the guns and just sell them to a FFL.

Interesting. I can see how it'll be beneficial if the weapons are of any value, but to blindly say "omg, we're not going to put evil guns back on the street that committed crimes" seems stupid. It wasn't the gun that was committing the crime it was the perpetrator.

In general I would agree but I can also see why a large city wouldn't want a large number of cheap crappy guns out there. While only a few should make it into the hands of bg's, if you don't make much then it isn't worth it.

TABC has long auctioned their unused and seized firearms. They have a contract to put them all on gunbroker.com. I don't remember the name of the company they use, but if you search my old posts from 2006-2009 I am sure I posted it once when we auctioned off the old S&W 4006s.

This company did a lot of public property auctions of property other than firearms also. I am sure you will see more of them getting contracts to auction firearms.

I found it. CDN Systems, Gunbroker seller name cdnsystems.

Their website looks like it has changed a bit, but it has been a couple years since I looked at it. Checking gunbroker.com shows that they do not have any current listings. Between these two points, I am not sure if they still sell guns for police departments or not.

They put the criminals back on the street,why not pardon the guns too,I wouldn't have a problem with them melting down jennings or davis or cobra junk,but if a nice python or 1911 or sweet shotgun came up then they should give it a reprieve,besides somebody may lock it up so it won't be hanging around and pot metal junk and get into trouble again
It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end-to-end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them
