This year will go down in history for the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.
Adolph Hitler (1935 Weapons Act of Nazi Germany)
I gather that the newest approach to undermining the 2nd amendment is to have a health “professional” do it. I have known two doctors who were rabidly anti-gun. I’m fairly certain that they’d be more than happy to do it for any list brought to them.
Good for him for not dropping it.
David Lewis was the "wrong person", not because they had the wrong name and address but because he didn't grovel and apologize. He is a real American who stood up for his rights, not a spineless pansy who would bow to the ruling class. Good for him - a new hero when our GOP leaders are showing just how much we need a hero.
"Whoopsie! Sorry about your Bill of Rights!"
Sue the bastards.
Civil Rights violation.
If a lawyer had not been hired and this story made public, they would have kept his guns.
Didn’t see where they were giving him his permit and guns back.
4th Amendment - "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
5th Amendment - "...nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
14th Amendment - "...nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
It may shock a lot of liberals, but statements by media celebrities on NPR, debate in Congress, or anonymous tips to police agencies are NOT due process.
And the dummies in NYC, Albany, Buffalo, and other blue parts of NY keep electing rats that will work to take more liberties away from all of us in NY.
So now the whole world knows Mr. Lewis is using drugs to treat a mental health issue.
Great job NY State Legislatures and Governor.
Did I miss something in the article? I still don’t know where Mr. Lewis’ confiscated guns are.
We need to demand a list of all cops who have been treated for mental issues.
I guess this answers the question about whether cops are willing to confiscate people’s guns.
[snip] Have a conceal-carry license in Missouri? Chances are, the feds now know who you are. At least 185,000 people were affected after the full list of conceal-carry owners was turned over the federal authorities twice.
Apparently from what I understand, they wanted to match up anyone who had a mental diagnosis or disability with also having a concealed carry license, the Columbia Daily Tribune reports Republican state Sen. Kurt Schaefer as saying. What I am told is there is no written request for that information.
I want to applaud the actions of the clerk!
Clerk Jacobs has established a solid set of evidence and testimony that will make the litigation against the State very hard for them to support.
I think that by pointing to the Governor and the Legislature on a radio program he has provided those who didn't want to see a closed door piece of legislation rammed through the State's legislative body by the governor with lots of political ambition.
As such I would wager that the Clerk Jacobs is not on a variety of Democratic party shit-lists.
I think he likely has done all the people of NY a favor and that he has potentially attempted to save the bacon of his County from litigation and further embarrassment.
It will be interesting if other false 2nd amendment affronts keep happening.
Actions speak louder than words.
Apparently this provision supersedes due process and it's not necessary to have a court adjudicate someone mentally incompetent in order to take their guns. The Toomey-Manchin compromise does pretty much the same thing.
