The alternative was the police killing him and his wife. Maybe his kid(s) too. It’s all about saving the children.
“And they took his guns away
No, he gave them up. “
These are the test cases... IMO...
... LEO agencies and bureaucrats experimenting and proving their tactics for passive surrender of legally owned firearms...
Hasn't this fancy-pants New York lawyer heard of an emergency injunction,
....or temporary restraining order in lieu of a hearing/ adjudication.
Never surrender your stuff without due process....
...if they mount-up a raid team in the name of this bogus reason for confiscation--
There you have a stupid-endous tremendous example of overreach with clear violation of constitutional rights, particularly 2nd, 4th, 5th and 14th Amendment rights.
And what if he hadn't given them up and made a stand? Would you have shown up to help? Or would you have sat back and watched it on TV?
Don't take my post personally. I'm just illustrating a point.
No, he gave them up.
Under bad legal advice from a lawyer with bigger fish to fry (his case against the State of NY). It's going to be a lot harder to get the guns back now that the police have their hands on them.
