AMHERST, N.Y. - A state lawmaker is calling for an investigation into how an Amherst man's guns were taken away by mistake.
State Assemblyman Ray Walter says when he saw the news coverage of David Lewis' case, he knew immediately something was "seriously wrong." Walter wants some answers, when he meets face-to-face with the State Police Superintendent in Albany next Tuesday.
Lewis said, "It's been very embarrassing. I feel like I've been let down, and my privacy's been invaded."
Lewis was forced to turn in his seven handguns and stripped of his pistol permit. After State Police in Albany identified him - instead of a different David Lewis in another county - as being too mentally ill to own them.
Lewis' attorney, Jim Tresmond, suspects investigators are using the SAFE Act, to pry into confidential medical records.
"We hear that there's a special unit that's been created to peruse the HIPAA reports," Tresmond said.
Walter added, "Or else this was just a test case on the part of the Governor's office, to see how far we could push this law.

A special unit to investigate HIPAA records. Well isn’t that .....special.
Thanks for the ping.
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.
Adolf Hitler, 1935
Thanks for the ping.
How is that legal?
And the Airport Security who pats down granny in a wheelchair and lets the burka glide through?
I thought so.
Bogus quote making the rounds. Hitler benefited greatly from the gun control he inherited, but that quote was never said or written.
It’s ironic Hitler’s non-words, repeated often enough, became truth by means of propaganda.
Fishing HIPAA is not legal. Yet. But the law presently being considered in the Senate would legalize the practice. The guys in NY just jumped the gun a bit.
supposedly there are several people beign represented by the lawyer- but all we’re hearing abotu is this one man-
roh roh- We got caught beign naughty and violating people’s constitutioonal rights-, but don’t worry folks, we’ll investigate ourselves and let you know what we coem up with
[[Its ironic Hitlers non-words, repeated often enough, became truth by means of propaganda.]]
Hmmm- seems thel eft was just makign crap up abotu romney beign a murderer, tax cheat etc and kept repeatign it day after day, and even our own dear leader kept repeatign FALSE crap day after day for nearly a month about benghazi, and now theirl ies are truth-
Irregardless of who said that abotu guns- the fact remains that socialists LIKE hitler strive to remove guns from peopel so that they can then lord over the peopel without fearign an uprising- Yuo can bet hitler GLADLY inherrited a gunless population and exploited that population’s vulnerabilites to the enth degree-
I'm not sure I'd put it exactly like that, but I certainly agree with it. Hitler benefited greatly by having gun control already in place when he seized power. But it hurts our cause when liberals can say quotes we use in argument are in fact hoaxes.
Just the beginning of a rough ride for New York State.
And we can use a liberal tactic and say, "Prove that Hitler never said that", regardless of the fact that you can't prove a negative, they use that canard all the time.
Piss on liberal illogical ideas.
I don't see them claiming it's legal. On the contrary, they are claiming it is special!
