The town of Roseboro will be hosting a gun sale, selling six handguns that were retired from the former Roseboro Police Department.
The guns were used by the police department before it was disbanded in 2008. Sale of the guns will be held July 1, at 8 a.m., at James Trading Company. Robby James is a licensed federal firearm dealer and according to town officials, will be handling the transfer of the guns.
“The guns will not be on display until 8 a.m. July 1,” a notice from the town read. “They are the property of the Town of Roseboro and they are locked in a secure environment until the morning of the sale.”
The notice notes that the guns are not available for preview.
Each gun is listed and will be sold for $400. This price is not negotiable. In addition to the purchase price, the buyer will be responsible for the North Carolina sales tax of 7 percent and a $20 FFL transfer fee payable to James Trading Company. Cash, a valid North Carolina resident check or valid credit card in the purchaser’s name may be used as payment for the purchase.
All sales require a valid North Carolina hand gun purchase permit or concealed carry permit. A government issued form of identification is also required.
According to the town’s notice, buyers will be taken on a first come, first serve basis and be given a maximum of 10 minutes to view the weapons privately and make their decision before the next buyer is allowed to view.
This sale is authorized pursuant to North Carolina general statute.
