    Pretty sweet deal. I maybe kinda sorta wasted a couple people with an illegally possessed heater but now I can turn it in, have it destroyed and have zero connection to any of my murders. Awesome!

    I really, really hope L.A. does this on a regular basis cause if I can get my murder weapons destroyed on a regular basis with no questions asked I’m in murder heaven. I’ve watched the crime shows on TV and seen the lengths those other poor saps go through to hide the gun they killed someone with and I just have to laugh. All I can say is move to L.A.!!!!! Kill everyone you want and get the evidence destroyed by the freakin’ cops of all people.
