A Nevada pawn shop is facing criticism for selling the .38-caliber pistol of ex-LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner, who went on a shooting rampage in Southern California earlier this year.
Bargain Pawn in North Las Vegas, has put the gun up for sale in an online auction, hoping to donate proceeds to victims' families.
But Sgt. Brian Smith, president of the Riverside Police Officers Assn., called the sale "tasteless." The union is raising funds to benefit the children of Officer Michael Crain, who was shot and killed by Dorner in an ambush.
"We're not interested in the money," Smith said. He suggested the right thing to do might be to turn the gun in to local police to have it destroyed.
