Sheriff aiming to sell guns, rearm personnel
September 14, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Greg Munks

It’s not quite biting the bullet, but Sheriff Greg Munks will ask county supervisors Tuesday for the legal right to sell off its stock of old duty weapons and use the proceeds to buy new guns for sworn personnel.

Selling the 355 current duty weapons plus another 400 old guns should raise between $130,000 and $150,000, depending on the number and type sold, which will offset the estimated $150,000 price tag of the new Smith & Wesson weapons.

Currently, code prohibits law enforcement officials from selling, trading or otherwise transferring any firearm owned or possessed by San Mateo County. The Board of Supervisors at its Tuesday meeting will considering amending the code to allow the sale.

The manufacturer has offered to buy the old duty weapon inventory at fair market value, according to Munks. Munks first wants to offer the weapons to interested sworn personnel. Any firearms left will be sold to Smith & Wesson.

Both sales will be through a licensed firearms dealer.

The Board of Supervisors meets 9 a.m. Tuesday, Saturday, Sept. 17 in Board Chambers, 400 County Government Center, Redwood City.
