To the Journal editor:
While millions of relinquished or confiscated guns are currently being destroyed by federal, state and local governments, why can't they instead be expropriated for use by law enforcement agencies and/or the U.S. military?
At first glance, it would appear that destruction of these firearms will make our streets safer; however, many of these guns will be replaced by new ones sold by gun dealers.
