    WASHINGTON, D.C. - Recently, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) introduced the Federal Law Enforcement Service Weapon Purchase Act, which would allow current federal law enforcement officers to purchase their retired service weapon at market value in an effort to stop the loss of millions of federal dollars in destroyed guns.

    "It's important for law enforcement to be equipped with the necessary resources for their job, including tools to promote gun safety and prevent gun violence," said Senator Tillis. "This legislation will enable federal law enforcement to purchase retired handguns rather than letting them be needlessly thrown away. It will also further safety and training programs for gun safety education. I will always work hard to support our brave law enforcement officers."

    Background:

    The Federal Law Enforcement Service Weapon Purchase Act allows federal law enforcement officers to buy their retired weapon at the fair market value within six months of the end of its service life. The agency must conduct a background check prior to purchase.

    The bill is endorsed by the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, the National Association of Police Organizations, the Fraternal Order of the Police, Women In Federal Law Enforcement, and the National Treasury Employees Union.
