He voluntarily gave them up.
“He was cooperative and voluntarily gave up his guns for safekeeping, Shell said. They will be returned to him.”
“’We don’t have any indication (he is a threat),’ she said”
I don’t know what those parentheses are about, but if they don’t think he’s a threat why do they have his guns? And how “voluntary” was it, really?
Sounds like a sport shooter or hunter who was overheard saying something like “I’m going to give those bastages what for about this goldurn construction on my street.”
This being the decidedly non liberal Alaska I think the odds are yes the guns will be returned in a few weeks, but why this charade at all?
