To Serve and Confiscate…..

Imagine you get into a loud argument in your home with an adult son. Though it’s resolved peacefully, the police had been called.
They then confiscate your legal firearms and ammunition — valued at $100,000.
Even though you’ve been convicted of nothing.
Even though you weren’t even charged.
And here’s the kicker: The police say they’re going to keep your property.

This is exactly what disabled 9/11 ex-New York City firefighter Marc Weinstein alleges happened to him, in a lawsuit, Weinstein v. Krumpter, et al., he filed earlier this month in U.S. District Court for Eastern New York.

On February 25, 2014, Weinstein got into a loud dispute with his son over the use of a washing machine in his Baldwin, New York, home in Nassau County. “There was shouting between them,” contends the suit, “but no violence, no threats of violence, and no brandishing of weapons.” Nonetheless, the elder Weinstein’s wife called the police — a decision they both, apparently, would come to regret.

The suit further states that the Nassau County Police arrived, found “the home at peace, spoke with the wife and son and found that the argument had been peaceably resolved.” This didn’t stop the cops, however, from asking to see Weinstein’s handgun permit and demanding he give them his registered weapons. Weinstein refused — and the police left. But that wasn’t the end of it.

Three hours later, the ex-firefighter found himself confronted by five armed officers. And even though they had no warrant, they stated that Weinstein would be arrested unless he surrendered his expensive collection of firearms and ammunition. He reluctantly complied, he says, “under duress.” American Thinker’s Michael Filozof reports on the rest of the story, writing:

    Probably voted for both Cuomo and the communist DeBlasio.

    The NY state “SAFE” Act is the second most mis-named piece of legislation in the U.S.-right behind the Patriot Act.

    The article is summed up nicely-

    “The larger issue here, critics would contend, is a statist mentality that not only scoffs at Second Amendment rights, but also involves the notion that constitutional rights relating to search, seizure, and private property don’t apply when the matter concerns firearms.

    Many would also say there’s a little considered problem with denying Second Amendment rights to the “mentally ill”: Our ever-expanding notion of mental illness.

    With modern psychology continually diagnosing what were formerly recognized as normal faults, frailties or moments of weakness as diseases or conditions of the brain — and with some psychiatrists saying, “We’re all mentally ill” (at least sometimes) — who among us will be deemed fit for gun ownership? Note also that specious diagnoses of mental illness were routinely used in despotic Marxist regimes as a convenient way to eliminate political “undesirables.”

    In fact, with some atheists even saying that religious belief is a mental disorder, one can only wonder: Will a desire to own guns also soon be labeled mental illness?”

    ODD anyone?

    They don’t call it Strong Island for nuthin. The cops there have been playing the game for long long time. Steer clear. I knew of one who used to stop people on the LIE and instead of giving them a ticket they had to go to his friends convenience store at the next exit and buy stuff. He did it for kicks to see how many would actually go, and they did.

    There are moments in life that justice will not prevail in a court. This is one of those moments. Start shooting the fuckers, one by one, that stole your guns, and keep shooting them until you get all your guns back. This is, of course, snark, sarcasm and parody, which of course falls under the First Amendment. The “falling” part is under the Second Amendment. Until we make the punishment worse than the offense, this shit will continue.

    Not one of these mother fuckers has personal security. Stop whining and make an example of them. Still parody, snark and sarcasm.
