    If cops wrongly destroy guns, should they replace the guns?

    When Guns Are Wrongly Destroyed, Should Cops Pay or Replace?

    Buried in a Wednesday Fox News story about how police sometimes wrongly seize firearms from people was a reference to a California case in which the Torrance, California Police Department wrongly destroyed 21 firearms that were family heirlooms taken and then held despite two court orders.

    They should pay AND replace. It's not like it's uncommon for a government screw-up to be met with harsh punishment from the courts.
    You can have free speech or you can have income taxes but you cannot have both.

    Should not come from the taxpayer but from those in office that allowed them to be destroyed.

    the cops who illegally destroyed the firearms should have to replace with better versions of what was destroyed and have to pay a penalty on top of that
