If a lawyer had not been hired and this story made public, they would have kept his guns.
I notice the article and Press Release are silent about whether he actually got the weapons back. AFAIK, his license is still suspended by the Judge.
“I smell BS

I smell B.S., too. I posted on another thread that I think confiscation of guns using the mental health/psychotropic drug angle is their intention all along. There is a similar provision in the current Senate bill being debated. The NY State Police just began implementing TOO SOON, which brought unwelcome attention to the language in the proposed Federal legislation. The NY State Police were probably ordered to slip back underneath their rocks for a while until all legislation is in place at a federal level.
You will notice that the police statement didn’t say that they did the wrong thing. They just said that they did it to the wrong person.
I feel like I’m off my rocker for thinking this way, but I only use the past track record of our government to generate this hypothesis. These are some devious and evil people we are dealing with, here.
