Skip to comments.California Raiders Seize Guns as Owners Lose right to Arms
Posted on 03/13/2013 9:46:13 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Wearing bulletproof vests and carrying 40-caliber Glock pistols, nine California Justice Department agents assembled outside a ranch-style house in a suburb east of Los Angeles. They were looking for a gun owner who'd recently spent two days in a mental hospital.
They knocked on the door and asked to come in. About 45 minutes later, they came away peacefully with three firearms.
California is the only state that tracks and disarms people with legally registered guns who have lost the right to own them, according to Attorney General Kamala Harris. Almost 20,000 gun owners in the state are prohibited from possessing firearms, including convicted felons, those under a domestic violence restraining order or deemed mentally unstable.

since when does this automatically mean you can’t have guns anymore?
i see a lot of out of work psych majors in the near future.
I would proclaim most government workers to be power hungry insane narcissists. What then? Citizen arrests?
They would love to declare us all insane and deal with us similarly. Screwing your buddy in the keister is perfectly sane you see but speaking out against your government is antisocial behavior and that’s crazy.
It’s how Stalin and Hitler did it. Diagnose a person as nuts, send him away to the camps.
We should all trust the government to make these assessments....They seldom get things wrong.
forget that, just disarm them on the spot. then let them go back to doing nothing.
Those raiders should have been dropped at the door, never to raid again !
Do not tell anyone about anything.
>>California Raiders Seize Guns as Owners Lose right to Arms<<
The Raiders finally figure out how to win in the 21st century!
DBs with no arms for now. Next up, every Oakland game starts with the Raiders +24 (so they might win 50% of home games).
There are only 33 of these raiders in the state.
Sometimes I think the gov wants these poor bastages to get shot so they can escalate this thing even higher.
If I was one of these Cops, I would be looking for a transfer.
When the libtards in this state enacted the Domestic Violence Restraining Law any alleged violent act reported to the police via 911, by your girlfriend, wife or anyone living with you immediately brings a five year suspension of your right to keep and bear arms.
I recall when the law was passed it came to light that about 25% of the LEO’s would have to be given desk jobs due to domestic violence accusations... oops! Of course an amendment waiving LEO’s soon followed.
That’s basically what it is. Either never resist, and the government will eventually strip everybody of rights or push it so somebody does something unfortunate, than the government uses it as a pre-text to strip rights.
It sure feels that way.
To be fair, some of these guys have lots of time into their careers and don’t want to relinquish benefits.
Cops get the best guns and doobs, plus pensions!
for the preppers’ ping list
I gather prepping is only for those whom the state has deemed mentally competent. No doubt the ranks of those whom the state deems unsuitable will grow by leaps & bounds.
Take a tip from Alinsky.
Overrun their systems.
FK being PC anymore.
That’s what they want.
This woman should have politely told the officers to get a search warrant. I didn't read in the article that this case had been adjudicated in a court of law. Despite what a nurse said, the nurse is not a judge.
Excuse me officers, but why in the hell aren’t you in Oakland? Ya scared or something?
Welcome to the socialist states of Amerika. Thank you Obummer.
The fact that they’re doing it, and getting away with it, says a lot. At what point will they meet real resistance? You know, a real, tangible counter to their “authority”?
If people would create a standoff, at least they would
think about every victim they go after.
What needs to,happen is that conservatives need to,get past their disunity and vote enmass. Until that happens, this will continue until the left completely wins and commits acts of genocide upon the population.
Yeah... Oakland or South Central L.A.....
I am waiting for our heroes out of the military with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to be declared mentally unfit to possess a firearm. These totalitarians always use the mental justification to take away a person’s rights. The Russian Federation used psychiatry for political purposes and used the threat of psychiatric diagnosis as a means of political repression.
If a person is deemed mentally unfit to have a gun, that same person is mentally unfit to have bleach, gasoline, fertilizer, carving knives, drain cleaner, propane, a car, fly an airplane, etc
You would, yet they don't. What does that tell you about them? Hint. Some people enjoy grinding their jackboots on the necks of other.
It's not about logic or safety. It's about the government sticking it to the citizenry and showing the peasants who's in charge by rubbing their noses in the fact that they've lost their freedom.
F... 'em. These are the people who are doing the actual work to turn a republic into a tyranny at the orders of the politicians. They're the saem as the Stasi, the KGB, the gestapo, the khmer rouge, etc. They best hope that they don't run across a prepared patriot.
All these new gun laws are more of the same ‘make war on white people’. You’ll never ever see a team assembled against a high crime inner city section 8 housing with 2 shootings a week...
...with this gubermint; if they can’t look at you and know how you’re going to vote then you’re the bad guy in need of supervision.
Once again the uncivilized ‘perfect voter’ block gets a bye and we see more selected enforcement against taxpayers.
The fact that none of them has been killed yet proves that these folks they are stealing the guns from are not crazy.
How many of these cops are gun crazed themselves?
I would bet at least 50% of them.
Sombody thinks that cops would not do this? Think again, they love dressing up in their SWAT crap and raiding the public.
I've been saying that for years and most of the time the FR jackboot licking society attacks me for it. The police are NOT your friends. They are there to enforce the will of the government and to kill you, your family and your dog if you resist (or your dog just because they can.) Makes one wish for a wider availabilty of claymores.
Just as the Nazi’s had no trouble finding men for their SS or their Gestapo, our American law Enforcement agencies will have no trouble finding “oficers” to do their bidding, and in fact will find stand out volunteers. It’s a power trip.
Under government run Obamacare with Lib access to all personal medical info...
registered republican -> wing nut -> insane -> loss of gun rights -> sheep for slaughter
Unfortunatley those who are doing the firearms “take away” will soon run into someone who wants to keep their guns instead of giving them up. The outcome will NOT be good and the press will love the followup story opportunities.
This is a travesty in this country. WOn’t be long and they can fabricate ANYTHING the need to decide you a “unfit” to have a weapon.
We as a nation are SO SCREWED.
Deprivation of property without due process. This is clearly unconstitutional.
I have no problem with taking the right to keep and bear if a person has been found insane by a court with a jury.
“But but but California isn’t a Police State....”
Just waiting for the next governmnet program that rewards neighbors to tattle on neighbors.
First it’s for just a few reasons. Then it’s for more reasons. Then it’s because of your Facebook profile. Then it’s for any reason at all.
So, now you can lose your civil rights just like that?
I wonder how long it will be ‘till somebody SHOOTS BACK??
Sounds like a HIPAA violation. How did they know he was in the hospital?
I do. Slippery slope. Try reading the second amendment it ends "shall not be infringed." Not shall not be infringed except for people who fall into the following categories. Ben Franklin has something to say to you:
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safetyLook up the definition of "useful idiots" as defined by Stalin
I would argue that they already have plenty of people who fit that definition in their current ranks.
Brain dead. If you have no faith in the jury system you are not an American.
Look up the definition of "useful idiots" as defined by Stalin
Look up the definition of "idiot."
