Sheriff Joe made a huge move that has liberals screeching. What did he decide to do with the seized crime scene guns? He turned it around to help prevent those crimes in the first place. Here’s how…
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is using money from the sale of seized crime scene guns to buy $140,000 in ammunition and radios for his volunteer posse.
The total garnered from the sale–$257,443–is being divided between the ammunition purchase and a $102,656 purchase of radios for the posse as well.
According to a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) press release, the $140,000 in ammunition works out to “nearly 500 cases of ammo” consisting of 9mm, .45, and .223.”
Sheriff Arpaio said:

They need to be ready to protect themselves, the deputies they are supporting, and any innocent bystanders in potentially violent situations.

Being prepared for a hostile criminal element is crucial.
