Who dropped the dime on this guy to the State Police?
Question is, how did they learn? Do we have a violation of HIPPA? Was there due process to remove his right to bear arms? Obviously not.
Welcome to Amerika!
Yes, the question is how did they know? Hopefully, the attorney can find the answer and deep six the SAFE act.
I KNOW there are many lawmakers that take Xanax, Ativan and other Benzodiazapenes to relax, while flying, or to help them sleep. Add Ambien into the mix because it makes some people do weird things (supposedly, or as his excuse, that’s why that one Kennedy crashed his car) and the NY state Assembly, Senate, Governor and probably US House and Senate members need to turn in all their weapons. I even remember Colin Powell and Hillary talking about taking Benzos or Ambien to try and get enough sleep when constantly traveling. Wish I could remember the link. This is BS. You don’t just give Xanax or the like to seriously mentally ill people that are going to shoot people, if you do that’s malpractice.
Does the man get his guns back upon satisfying the requirements for gun ownership (I can’t believe I am asking this question)? Or, do they run their police cars over the barrels and render them destroyed.
Come and get em boys, but remember it is my duty as a citizen to shot you on sight as an enemy of the constitution and the free state.
FReepmail me if you want on or off my health and science ping list.
Our local gun store even said that if I came in with my husband, who has a CCP (which, if you have a concealed carry permit, you don't need a new separate permit for new gun purchases), and he bought a gun and turned to me - in the store - handed me the gun and said, "Happy birthday, honey!", the store would have to cancel the sale. They are not allowed to let that happen. There's nothing they can do if he waits until we get in the car to give it to me, but they could be put out of business if they knowingly allowed someone to buy a gun for another person who doesn't have a permit.
What the dorks can't seem to understand is that criminals NEVER get a gun the legal way. Law-abiding, regular citizens are the ones who get prevented from being able to defend themselves, their families and homes. Now, it looks like people who take certain medications either currently or in the past are being denied the right to own a gun. If I were that guy, I would NOT have turned in my guns! Allowing the state to have that kind of power over the citizen is tantamount to tyranny! One day it's possible mental issues due to medication and the next day it's religious beliefs. It won't be long before NOBODY (legal, that is) will be allowed to have a gun. Is that what we really want?
I think they are looking to use any excuse to deprive people of the right to gun ownership.
Any leos on these meds will have to give up their weapons.
This is pure bullcrap! I use a .25 occasionally .5 Xanax to help me rest now and then due to a sleep disorder and I’ll be damned if they want to take away my guns because of it! That is discrimination, period. I would venture to guess that half the population is on some kind of mood enhancer whether it be anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine etc. People are not going to be perfect, ever, and the second amendment was not made with “perfect” people in mind either.
This case could be the opening gun-owners are looking for re a test case about the use of certain types of perscription drugs.
I can see s whole battery of pharmacists and doctors on the witness stand explaining the whole gamut of mental problems and illnesses, as well as pharmocology to the judge and jury and the public.
It is a matter that needs to be brought out into the open so that a serious debate can be started on what kind of mental conditions and what kind of drugs can be dangerous re someone who owns a firearm, and which ones are not.
Also, how much time is involved in someone resolving their mental issues and getting off of the drugs involved.
If our side plays it cards right, it will be able to educate the whole illiterate country as to what is real and what is false.
If anyone has ever had a prescription for any kind of psychotropic drug, it will probably be used against you sooner or later to deny 2nd Amendment rights. Larry Pratt warned us about this a few years ago.
This is what the NRA and GOA must keep harping on. Allowing background checks will bring gun registration. Registration brings confiscation. HIPPA laws were there to keep everything quiet so we could allow the government to digitize our health records. Now they can thumb through them at their leisure. Background checks will do no good if they don’t know who has what.
I’ve been saying for quite a while now this would happen. It will be especially easier to do this now that the Affordable Care Act (ha) is in force.
For you parents out there with children you think had ADHD, remember that their Ritalin Prescriptions will also be used against their right to own a weapon one day.
If he had just smoked a little dope instead he wouldn’t be in this situation. /s
This is the reason that cramming Obamacare down our throats was essential to the Marxist democrats.
It is the portal for every vile and unConstitutional thing they have in store for us. It is the portal, so to speak. They now have access to your medical records, bank accounts and have their “doctors” and “neighbors” acting as informants.
People should make sure they keep an eye on their medical records because things could easily be planted on those records.
