Estate auction in Byron features hundreds of guns


BYRON, Minn. (KTTC)- The debate over gun control rages on in the United States, but much closer to home, people are still looking to buy guns either to collect or to use.

Hundreds of people spent their Saturday inside the Byron Event Center at an estate auction, mostly featuring different types of weapons. Considering the toxic climate involving gun control, that begs the question of how something like this can still be so popular?

The answer to that question was on the first table as you walked into the door. Hundreds of guns were up for auction. All you had to do was walk in, buy a ticket, and have the money ready to spend.

No background check required.

Those at the auction said that they were either collectors or hunters, looking to add to their own collection.

This all-day event featured other items in the auction, but those items were tucked away in the back, hidden behind people bidding on the very visible weapons.

There were many different types of weapons available at the estate auction, including some that are classified as assault-style firearms.
