On Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security, along with a SWAT team and Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies raided the home of Robert Adams in Albuquerque, New Mexico and, according to a federal search warrant affidavit the raid seized nearly 1,500 firearms from the man’s home and business. However, no charges have been filed against him, despite the fact that court documents reveal that agents had been watching Adams for years. By Wednesday afternoon dozens of rifles were hauled out of the house, bagged as evidence and laid out on the lawn. According to search warrants that were filed on Thursday Homeland Security Investigations confiscated nearly 900 firearms from Adams’ home, 548 handguns and 317 rifles. They also seized 599 pistols and revolvers from his office. Neighbors say that he was a firearms collector and some indicated that he was also a licensed gun seller. No confirmation of that has been forthcoming. While having been watched for years and no charges filed as they seized Adam’s firearms, Federal investigators are saying that they are investigating him for gun smuggling, tax evasion, violating importation laws.

It has begun.

If it has then where are all the FReepers who call for insurrection and why aren't they mobilizing to drive to his defense?

Well, it is Super Bowl weekend after all and the big game is tomorrow. Maybe they're planning something for Monday...........

1 -- I think that that might be more media taint than anything else, 2 -- THEY WERE ACQUITTED OF ALL CHARGES, more than a hundred.... being "a nutjob" isn't a reason to persecute someone.

They say they bagged up the guns on the law as EVIDENCE.

Evidence of WHAT?

They investigated him for YEARS, but do not even now know? That is puzzling.

Actually it’s ARBITRARY AUTHORITY, which is dictatorship.

I once had a briefing on a sensitive subject, and before the briefing began, the briefer put up an unusual illustration.

It was of the head of a yawning baboon, its long, sharp, upper canine teeth descending two ropes, on which was a swing, with a little girl swinging on it, into and out of the baboon’s mouth.

He said that the baboon represented the media, or the government. “And you represent the little girl on the swing. As long as the baboon is bored and yawning, you can continue to have fun. But if *anything* attracts the baboon’s attention, it will no longer be bored, stop yawning, and it will be the end of you.”

He said that this is an important lesson in life. For no matter what you are doing, you should go to great lengths to never catch the attention of the baboon, or it will make a meal out of you.

Any damage to any gun, mark it SOLD to the Federal Gun Runners! Police regularly mark guns that are taken as evidence, in this case, that would devalue his inventory.

(Don’t take a check, and every day you until the goods are returned and restocked, charge a days worth of wages.)

Then comes the libel suit...

I ran across some youtubes last night showing gun confiscation during Katrina. First time I had heard of it.

This one is called Katrina Illegal Gun Grab:

Our house was once raided by the King County SWAT team. I was at work; my wife was in a cast after having foot surgery shortly before. She was held against the wall with guns pointed at her head while men heavily armed men ran around our house searching every nook and cranny. She was concerned about the safety of our three dogs... She was told that the officers had the “right” to shoot them.

They never showed her a search warrant or even ID. When they didn't find what they were looking for... they left without giving any apologies. I called the sheriffs office to find out what it was all about, but never received any coherent answer.

I was told that they were looking for a young man who had just gotten out of jail for having an underage girlfriend. The girl's dad called the police when he found that the two were planning on seeing each other. The young man had apparently given the authorities a phone number that had been associated with our address before we moved in. We bought the house from an elderly couple who had no association with the young man. We were told that the SWAT team raided our house based on a reverse directory search of a bogus phone number.

The entire episode illustrated to me that your rights can be trampled on. And even if you make a stink... nothing will be done about it. The responsible parties will not get in trouble. We didn't have any guns in the house at the time, but if we did I have often wondered if they would have been confiscated.

That’s a lot of guns, enough that I might consider him quirky (or maybe not). Still, it is a violation of the Fourth Amendment “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated . . .” to take his property if there is insufficient justification for criminal charges. [Courts may disagree with me, but if so, they are wrong.] I’d rather have armed American citizens defending themselves on their own than a Department of Homeland Security that ignores the Bill of Rights.

I collect LEGO, does that make me a criminal?

FDR made gold coin collectors criminals in the 1930’s Obama will do the same with Guns...

Grace, Please understand... This is HOW it has always been done. Make an example of a few, most will then go willingly, wipe up the true patriots that are left later. We cannot demonize the first to fall in order to NORMALIZE the way we feel about in utero tyranny.

You are wise in exercising abundant caution.

Be patient. They will get to the LEGO collectors and hoarders soon enough.
