    Which benefits public safety more, destroying hundreds of guns or putting tens of thousands of dollars in a police department budget?

      and police departments get thousands. Most of the smaller departments turn in one or two guns and get a few hundred back; not enough to buy enough body armor to protect against one AK47 with a banana clip.

      Also, in reply to another earlier comment; we have all manner of state surplus auctions for everything from desks, to boats, to mowers, to police cars. The gun auction is completely separate and you have to be a licensed gun dealer to even attend.
