Ada County auctions off guns to licensed gun dealers

By On Your Side Newsroom. CREATED Aug 14, 2014

Over 200 guns seized by Ada County law enforcement agencies in the last three years will be auctioned off to licensed gun dealers and is estimated to bring in thousands of dollars in general funds to Boise, Meridian, and Garden City.

The guns can be acquired in criminal investigations where the ownership cannot be determined or donated by the public who want to safely get rid of their guns for personal reasons.

Idaho code allows weapons acquired by law enforcement not claimed after six months to be auctioned off.

Corbett Auctions and Appraisals Inc. is doing Thursday’s auction. The auction is not open to the public. It is for federally licensed firearm dealers.
