Pennsylvania Coroner to Auction off Guns Used in Suicides, Accidental Shooting Deaths

The Westmoreland County Coroner's Office has nearly 100 guns to sell off.

NY Daily News reports

A western Pennsylvania coroner is auctioning off about 100 guns used in suicides and accidental shooting deaths. 

Coroner Ken Bacha says the Nov. 8 surplus weapons sale is Westmoreland County government's first since his father was coroner in the 1980s. He says state law requires local governments sell off unclaimed property. Proceeds will help fund county government. 

Bacha's office took possession of the guns during death investigations. Family members had a year to get them back before they became county property. Some of the weapons have been in the county's hands for decades.

Eric M. Frein, the fugitive accused of killing one state trooper and seriously wounding another in an ambush, was captured Thursday and brought back to the barracks near Scranton, Pa., where his seven-week flight from the law began. 

Mr. Frein surrendered to federal marshals who found him hiding out in an abandoned airport in the Poconos Mountains, ending an intense manhunt that began Sept. 12, officials said in a news conference late Thursday. The marshals turned him over to the Pennsylvania State Police, who placed him in the slain trooper’s handcuffs and patrol car. 

“Frein has been stripped of his guns, his bombs and his freedom,” said Sam Rabadi, the special agent in charge of the Philadelphia field office of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “This community can now rest. He now has to answer for his violent actions.”

Ever notice how the people who try to persuade us that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with a well-regulated militia are usually the same people who want to persuade us that the US is a Christian Nation?
