Too bad for her.
It looks an anti-gun activist in Georgia is upset that over 40 guns that were purchased in a gun “buyback” (still don’t understand that word) were auctioned off to dealers to be sold back to the general public. Not sure what she expected in Georgia.
Niki Watson, an organizer of a gun buyback event, turned over 40+ guns to the Richmond County, GA Sheriff’s Office following one of her events. She thought those guns would be destroyed.
Not so fast. Under GA law, a law enforcement agency either has to return guns in its possession to their owners (who obviously don’t want them in this case), keep them, or auction them.
According to the Augusta Chronicle,
Last year, the sheriff’s office announced that it had accumulated more than 5,000 firearms that had to be sold or retained. Sheriff Richard Roundtree decided to auction off more than 1,400.
