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.

A one more reason to not live in Kookafornia BTTT
Respond? I remember how from G. Gordon Liddy.
America, land of the free?
This makes me ill. If the report is true it is fightening. I can not believe that Police officers and BATFE officers have rationalized their thugary. I would resign. I would go to the other side before I would do this to any citizen. It is shamful. It needs to be rectified by the USSC soon. There is no equal protection under the law for gun owners or for the 2nd amendment. I MOST other States what these guy have is NOT a CRIME of any sort. Sad.
A friend/subcontractor who lives near San Diego, sold his entire collection of AR's right after CA passed their draconian AW ban, because he could not tell what was and what was not, against the law. And he has a son who is a deputy sheriff!. Sad, just sad.
"America, land of the free?"
Not for a very long time.
If only Californians would elect a Republican governor, things like this would never happen. What? Oh. Never mind...
If I put five ten-round magazines in a tool box, does their proximity constitute a "fifty-round ammunition feeding device"? My understanding of the chain ammo is that each chain holds precisely two rounds, no more. Other chains, each holding two rounds, may be held in proximity, but no chain holds more than two rounds.
Sounds like the Tree of Liberty needs watering in California.
Anyone reading this reply who is planning to vote for either Angelides or the Austrian in November has only themselves to blame. A vote for Poochigian may not correct the problem but a vote for Moonbeam is certain death for constitutional protections.
Your vote counts. Don't waste it.
Too late. The illegals will keep voting for the anti-gun people because they are the same people handing out taxpayer funded goodies to illegal aliens. They will never allow the voter rolls to be purged of their illegal enablers.
This is really all for the good. Gun owners will "entrench" and find ways to become un-noticed. It's the American way. Paul Revere is laughing.
Ahh! The good old USSA. If you're not presently a criminal, you will be soon.
