Amid talk of reinstating the assault weapons ban that expired eight years ago, police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.
As WCBS 880s Marla Diamond reported, among the departments considering taking action is the NYPD. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said if Congress were to reinstate the ban, police are wondering whether it will be their responsibility to confiscate them.

But wait now. Don’t ya first have to go fish em outta the lake where ya lost em? :-)
“police departments nationwide are thinking of ways to confiscate such weapons.”
Utter BS. I know lots of big city cops. Cops are thinking of ways to avoid trouble when TSHF, safely go home to protect their families and collect a pension.
Big city cops have no power beyond the leftist city ratholes.
So forget the leftist Sun-Tzu fake crap that the LAPD is about to sweep the nation and confiscate everyone’s rifle. This is nothing more than a leftist fantasy by the commies who are scared sh*tless by 80 million Americans who own guns.
Have a merry Christmas, everyone.
If you plan on turning over a single firearm to the jackboots, then you've missed the entire reason for the 2nd Amendment.
My gun budget was toast for this month, so I was planning on getting the AR next month. Then the shooting happened, and everything disappeared in the panic buying.
I've been to a couple of my favorite gun stores, and they are out of everything AK and AR related.
Well said brother!
I ain’t giving up a damn thing!
Yeah, you could use the proceeds to pay for a month or two of private medical insurance now that ObamaCare has brought the rates down (sarc)
I think that’s why Barry put Uncle Joe BiteMe in charge of the project. Barry knows it ain’t going anywhere.
tagline... From My cold dead hands.
“When asked by a DI if I was willing to die for my country, I replied No way, but I’d be more than happy to make that other SOB die for his...”
I took an oath to defend this country from Enemies foreign and DOMESTIC, I am an oath Keeper to the end.
Ten years earlier in 490 B.C. The Persian King Darius tried to do the same thing except he landed at Marathon which is not far from Athens.
Herodotus put the Persian number at 100,000 but modern historians think it was closer to 25-35,000. The Athenians numbered around 10,000 (plus a thousand Plataens).
Darius army was a professional one trained and equipped by the Persian Empire. The Greeks were free men and the soldiers who could afford to wore heavy armor (hoplites). The ones who could not afford the armor were something like slingers and archers.
The Greeks gave Darius a bloody nose at Marathon but that was not the end. The Athenians who must have been exhausted from the battle, nevertheless marched the 26 miles to Athens and when Darius ships arrived at the port of Piraeus he found the heavily armed Greeks waiting for him.
I was thinking thermite.
It is typical of them to use a burner phone, have a gal record a “panicked” call from script on a pocket recorder, make the call from near target, remove the phone battery, and leave. Of course it doesn't have so much effect, should a liberal be accidentally targeted by one of their own, because liberals will be thrilled with the "pleasure" of entertaining police in their home.
“Those types of things get very nasty very quickly. They have families too. They may go out confiscating weapons and return home to find the price of obeying mammon”.......what if the SOBs are muslims, or we don’t know who they are, and they live in places far away from the altercations?
“Man, are they in for a surprise.”
I hear ya’ Brother.
80 million gun owners? That’s a lot of doors to kick down - especially if there’s an ornery patriot on the other side.
LOL! That would not be wise.
The mayor said a shooting rampage like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary only happens in America.
Not only is Bloomberg an idiot, he is also a liar.
When they leave home for the first day of confiscating will they disarm the wife first, their brother, father?
What will the bad guys be doing when all this confiscation is going down?
You bet it is.
I can’t believe someone is even thinking about it.
This would be a grand way to start a “realignment” of the country.
Want to bet that Kelly or Bloomberg are out front on the confiscation teams .... or do you think they will be back in their safe offices playing with their guns?
