MARANA, Ariz. -- The Marana Police Department is selling about 120 guns that have been locked up in evidence, with the money raised going to the town's general fund.

A new Arizona law mandates that guns are sold and not destroyed.

Marana police haven't paid to destroy legal firearms in the past. Weapons that have been illegally modified or have no serial numbers cannot be resold.

Tucson TV station KVOA reports that federally licensed firearm dealers will have the ability to view Marana's selection on Wednesday.

They must bid on the entire collection, not just the valuable weapons, by Nov. 22.

The collection includes a variety of handguns, rifles and shotguns. It does not include any semi-automatic rifles such as AR-15s or AK-47s.
