Normally, as a taxpayer, you’re just screwed when the government spends beyond its means and finds itself desperately in debt with no feasible means to get out. But, if you’re a gun collector, well, time to benefit at least a bit from Harrisburg, PA’s misfortune of a terrible Democratic mayor who focused on using resources to buy up “Wild West” collectibles at the expense of ignoring major infrastructure needs.
They are running another two days of auctions and have gun-related items as novel as an arrest warrant for the thief of a Colt Revolver to lots and lots and lots of very old guns. (I didn’t link nearly all of them, just the ones that caught my eye.)
While the residents of Harrisburg enjoy their view of the ever-expanding sinkhole collection around their city, you can buy up what’s left of the city’s gun collection – hopefully at reasonable prices.
