In a move reminiscent of 11th Century superstition, normally pro-gun Reps. N. Leo Daughtry (R-Johnston) and Ted Davis, Jr. (R-New Hanover) have, perhaps unwittingly, signed on with rabidly anti-gun Rep. Darren Jackson (D-Wake) with a bill entitled: "Destroy Firearm/Crime of Assault or Murder" (H241), which would push to destroy guns "used to assault a law enforcement officer."
Blaming guns has always been a ploy of the anti-gun establishment, and this bill is no exception. The proposed bill guts current legislation that limits the destruction of firearms by law enforcement to only those lacking legible serial numbers or are unsafe due to wear, damage, age, or modifications.
Apparently Reps Daughtry, Davis and Jackson believe in "deodands": The ancient superstition that an object believed to have "caused" a person's death should be destroyed because it is a "guilty object."
