Posted on 09/24/2006 9:09:43 PM PDT by freepatriot32
The LA County Gun Task Force has served another search warrant on the home of another member of the fifty caliber community. On Monday September 18th, eighteen police cars swarmed the neighborhood where the FCSA member lives and served a search warrant signed by Judge Steven Kleifield of the LA County Superior Court. The officers were at the residence for several hours and confiscated all semi-automatic firearms belonging to the victim.
The probable cause for issuing the search warrant was not available in the body of the affidavit so the reason for the search is unknown at this time. It should be noted the LA Gun Task Force used "High Risk" entry tactics by sending a SWAT Entry team to make the initial entry into the victim's residence. Gun owners in LA County need to be prepared to expect these kinds of entry tactics and respond to commands from any officers if you are contacted.
FCI wants everyone to be aware that the LA County Gun Task Force is lead by agents from BATFE; LAPD and LASO. They appear to have focused their attention on members of the fifty caliber community and are aggressively trying to arrest law abiding citizens for just being "Gun Owners".
In the situation that occurred this past Monday the victim had his entire firearms collection seized and he was told charges are going to be filed because he had in his possession linked ammunition in quantities of more than 10 rounds of ammunition at a time. This has been interpreted as a violation of the "High Capacity Magazine" portion of the Assault Weapons Act in CA. The victim owns a Semi-auto M2; a semi-auto M3 and a 30 caliber semi-auto 1919
Everyone living in California needs to pay attention to what is happening in Los Angeles. This can happen to you simply because someone who knows about your firearms calls the LA Gun Task Force and gives them information they interpret as a violation of the Draconian Gun Laws they have been passing for the last five years.
We are asking everyone to review what you have in your gun safe or workshop. Take the time to find out what is against the law and what is not. Remember, our first reported incident was over a flash hider on an M-1A and some armor piercing projectiles. Don't let this happen to YOU.
We are not able to identify the person involved in the incident on Monday or give you any more info about the circumstances about what occurred at this time. We will advise and update as we can.

"It is like Bill Clinton and Janet Reno are still controlling the ATF."
No, George Bush and Alberto Gonzales are and neither one gives a crap.
Then I'd say they're part of the problem.
What worked? People getting their unlawfully siezed firearms back? Not really - they're requiring proof of ownership to get your gun back. This is an area that was pretty much scrambled by the hurricane. I wonder how many of us could find our purchase receipts for items we purchased 5 years, 10, 20 30 years ago.
Not if you look closely. As time goes on, one does not even have to do that.
Just as long as your Mendocino acquaintances are cautious of the lessons learned in the tale Sundown at Coffin Rock which was written years ago and can be seen from the embedded hyperlink.

Unfortunate, but correct...
the BATFE was the most ignored of agencies when Bush came to power. It is still filled with Janet Reno's appointments.
I just shared this with my 18 YO son, and he asked why the gun owners of California haven't strapped on their guns and marched to the judge to take him out.
I sit and wonder why we gun owners of America haven't done so. What is it going to take?
And will this post bring the Gestapo to MY door?
I hope I don't have to find out if I'll go down fighting...I like to think that I would.
thanks for adding me..good post.
De facto registration leads to confiscation, arrest and possibly death. The wolves are going after those big, lovable, wouldn't-harm-a-flea lugs with 50cals, eating them one-by-one. The wolves can no longer be ignored.
Ir you thought the FCSA member lists were "protected," think again. How did this FCSA member get outed? BATFE at local shoots. That's all it takes: Note who has a 50cal and write down his/her name from the shooting range sign-in sheet or just observe which car he/she leaves in and write down the license plate number.
If you still have your 50cal and shot it at a match or other event, you could be compromised. Even if you sold it, shipped it out of state, you should consider arrest imminent. If you own other banned weapons, what are you doing in California?
Yeah, tell that to those who defend the election of every RINO that comes along. Just win is what you'll get, damn the consequences. As long as the person has an "R" after the last name, these people will breach walls to vote for them, and irritate anyone that points out the blantant stupidity of voting for RINOS.
Message to Joe Idiot Voter: anyone with one of these will be shooting at cops. (End Message).
My first response was "this gun has never been used to commit a crime in this state!!". Good for Ronnie Barret that the LEOs that bought his gun will have to get someone else to service it, since it's banning in Calif. Screw them and the benefit package/retirement/disability rip-offs that they rode in on. Badges should go only to patriots, not parasites.
Anyone who believes that those who 'serve and protect' wouldn't escort you and your family into ovens if given the order, is living in complete denial.
