Recycling guns in Virginia

Looks like the elected folks in the Virginia General Assembly have done it again! Somehow I missed a bit of legislation that they passed in 2012 about gun buy back programs in Virginia. These less than stellar minds declared that any guns from these buy backs could not be destroyed, or melted down to create some dandy Glock jewelry. Instead, they required that they be offered at auction to licensed dealers.

Isn't that akin to buying back aluminum cans and throwing them back in roadside ditches? Or they probably believe that they are simply recycling guns now in Virginia. Yup. Recycling them back into the streets and the hands of criminals.
