Yeah, this makes sense: A 10-year-old suggests a bully should be shot with a water pistol, so the police confiscate his fathers firearms and the State revokes his concealed-carry permit.
It happened in New York, a State that is notorious for the difficulty it causes its residents who want to legally carry a gun and that recently suspended the U.S. Constitution and passed draconian gun restrictions. The father posted news of his plight April 1 on the Longislandfirearms.com forum.
As much as hed like it to have been a bad April Fools joke, its not. In addition to having his guns confiscated and his license revoked, John Mayers son was suspended for two days by the Hauppauge School District following the March 1 incident. When Mayer inquired the next day about when his license would be restored, police told him it would be restored when his son turned 18 and moved out of the house.
Those running the non-education indoctrination system that passes for education have simply lost whatever minds they once possessed; and their ridiculous, mind-numbed zero-tolerance policies are causing kids and parents all manner of hardship and even resulting in criminal records for victimless non-crimes. And New York government long ago divested itself of common sense and restraint.
Mayer has sued the school system and the Suffolk County Police Department in Federal court. Its completely absurd, Mayers attorney James Murtha said. However, Murtha does not find the case surprising. He said that Suffolk County has a reputation for stepping on individuals gun privileges.
Weve been involved in cases and situations where police have severely injured or hampered someones rights, he said . We see enough wrong doing on both parties to be going toward a federal cause of action because of the civil rights implication.
Was there a Black Helicopter?
Trying to find story at Long Island Firearms forum.
Can’t you post a link ??? I don’t have all day to search high and low at that site.
NYS should be declared an evacuation zone.
Manhattan should be quaranteened and Doomberg, Cuomo, and Schumer dropped inside.
If you read the story the kid didn’t even have a water pistol!
This is New York.
If not for this reason, the father’s gun will be reported by snitch(es), registered and confiscated. Even though at a later date.
But they will come.
NY has become he communists capital of the United States. California is second. If civil war starts NY and California will be hit hard. Washington DC is already a dictatorship.
What the F is NY doing rendering families defenseless against threats such as home invasions, etc?
“He said that Suffolk County has a reputation for stepping on individuals gun privileges. “
Its a right, not a privilege.
Isn't that what the Heller SCOTUS decision was about?
Also, gleaned from the story, is the probable notion that the kid can NEVER have a firearm for his entire life. (stating that the dad's rights would not be restored till the kid becomes 18 and moves out)
Tyrant Kim Un Obama must be very pleased that his efforts have so easily FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Apparently, New York pols get off on pushing their weight around and telling others where to go, what to do, and where to get off.
Pols are all the same the world over - Russia, China, the United States, Great Britain, France, Cuba, Vietnam... you name it.
You forgot Illinois, Mass., and the rest of the coastal blue states....
And to think kids played Cowboys and Indians or Policeman with cap guns for decades and nobody got hurt.
I think there is a pedophile joke in here somewhere, but I’m too jaded to figure it.
I talked with a NYC kid who always carried 50 bucks to pay off muggers. I was surprised he wasn't wearing kneepads too.
Dependence on government for personal defense is the ultimate surrender of self to the state.
It is an invitation to tyranny that few governments will resist, and Bloomberg lusts after power.
Don't try to understand the committed NYC types, they are just simply different. That would be fine with me, if they were willing to keep their insanity at home.
