Posted on 07/21/2008 10:23:56 AM PDT by NY.SS-Bar9

An outspoken Long Island gun owner's home was raided by Nassau County detectives, who seized two dozen weapons he lawfully owns just one day after Rep. Carolyn McCarthy's office made a 911 call about him.

Freeport resident Gabriel Razzano claims he was targeted in the spring raid for his "unpopular" political beliefs.

Pretty scary stuff - too bad the sheriff didn't tell Rep. Carolyn McCarthy's office to stuff it...

A crazed gunman murdered her husband in the infamous 1993 Long Island Rail Road Massacre.

And if anyone remembers - it was a "crazed" black man looking to kill white people...

Too bad her husband could not legally fight back

"The office staff felt that Razzano's behavior was disruptive and threatening," said Lt. Kevin Smith, a police spokesman.

Razzano's home was raided the next morning.

That's all it takes anymore when one of the Lords is displeased.

“He's now filed a $5 million federal lawsuit against the Nassau PD and McCarthy, charging they joined forces to strip him of his guns unconstitutionally.”

I hope McCarthy loses her whole fortune to this man. She is a super-lefty disgrace in the Congress. As she can claim “victim” status, she has become untouchable politically.

This is exactly what the anti freedom tyrants want, and why they want to take everyone's guns. They are afraid of that their civilian masters might take offense at their actions.

Something is not right about this story. Congressional offices do not call 911 to get things done.

The flap arose on March 19, when Razzano visited McCarthy's Garden City office to discuss an article about an illegal immigrant who was deported but was later nabbed in Freeport for the attempted murder of a cop. "The office staff felt that Razzano's behavior was disruptive and threatening," said Lt. Kevin Smith, a police spokesman. Razzano's home was raided the next morning.

One would think that any behavior that was disruptive and threatening enough to justify a police raid the next morning would have resulted in his arrest at McCarthy's office.

“One would think that any behavior that was disruptive and threatening enough to justify a police raid the next morning would have resulted in his arrest at McCarthy’s office.”

Which very thought raises the BS flag for me on this subject.

While Democrats always scream about how Republicans are fascists without offering any evidence, they are the first to resort to fascist behavior to silence their opponents. Remember President Wilson and his arrest of over one hundred thousand of his opponents, the prosecution of nineteen thousand, and his order that the US Postal service not deliver magazines and newspapers that is didn't like.

The article showed the guy next to his gun-safe. If there was a bad enough problem to confiscate guns after a raid on his house, why is he not in custody?

This smells worse than a 2 day dead turtle in the Texas sun.

That is what is needed. A hard, personal smackdown would put the politicians on notice that their actions have personal consequences. I hope this guy prevails.

They often do. When Congressman Kolbe(R-AZ) was in office, my husband called his local office about a problem with the VA. The lady on the phone took offence to his complaint and the next thing we know, a couple of sheriff’s deputies were at the gate. Lucky for us, once hubby told them his side, they left. I guess it could have been worse.

As bad as it sounds, I have no sympathy for this vile woman. How many innocent lives have been lost because of her hysterical irrational fear of a simple tool (in this case, firearms)?
She, and others like her, just need to get their butts out of government and go home.

Only suing for $5 million is way too low. Sue them for $50 million. That will set off fireworks all across the country.

If they don’t want to go to trial, settle for $25 million.

If they disagree and say it’s outrageous, the only response will be a few words: see you in court.

Why arrest him when they can strike fear into his neighborhood and family by raiding his home and confiscating his legally-owned firearms?

Man, I hope he sues the pants off all involved. He apparently made no threats, and obviously was not armed. I see no reason to confiscate anything belonging to this man.

This is just McCarthy acting on her own and she should be prosecuted.

I say the cops should confiscate her keys to her office, since she cannot handle them in a safe manner.

Lesson Learned:

Safely and securely OFFSITE ANY FIREARMS that you intend to keep BEFORE dealing with Congresscritters, especially socialist scumbags like the one in question.

Use common sense. We’re dealing with really bad people here, in positions of enormous power and damage-potential.

I don't know the guy. However, by coincidence, we got a call in to Second Amendment Sisters a couple of days ago. A guy named John Curry from NY was calling trying to solicit funds for a Jack Martins. Curry is his campaign manager.

Martins is running for the 4th Congressional district of NY--against McCarthy.

I explained that due to the way we are set up,(401 C-4) the organization can neither endorse, nor donate to any politician or political party .

If anybody here wants to learn more about him, here is his website:

Johnmartins.com

He looks very conservative to me, and I'm sending him a bit of a donation. I'm sure that he would gladly accept donations from Freepers around the country, too. It would be such a relief to have Ms McCarthy relegated to the ash heap of history.

For some reason your second link came up as http www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2048861/Jackmartins08.com -- I think you may have left off the http;// and FR's translate screwed it up for you. :^)

I use Firefox too, it's great -- no popups, lots of extra bennies from addons, and no reports back to either MS or Google!

In Killeen Texas 18 people were gunned down at a Luby’s cafeteria. A woman whose parents were killed crusaded for the concealed carry law and got it passed. In NY, this woman’s husband is shot and she rides the publicity train to be elected as a gun grabber.

Just the diference between Texas people and New York. It’s really not right that we have to live under laws passed by New York or San Francisco weirdos. I wish Texas could go back to be a free and independent republic.

As another Tennessean once said, “You may all go to Hell and I will go to Texas.” There were more people at the Alamo from Tennessee than any other state. The state motto there is well earned.
