An efficiency report prepared for the city says Tulsa could make money by selling guns confiscated by police instead of melting them down.

The idea is one of about 1,100 included in a report by the consulting group KPMG that was completed this month. But city officials say if Tulsa ever did sell the confiscated guns, it would need to do so in a cautious manner.

The report recommends that the guns be sold to certified dealers through an auction process. It now costs the city $80,000 annually to dispose of the guns. Police Capt. Jonathan Brooks told the Tulsa World that 6,885 firearms have been seized by Tulsa officers during the last five years.

Tulsa’s new Management Review Office will review each of the ideas in the report before city officials decide whether to implement them.
