In California

A law abiding gun owner says his guns were taken because his wife voluntarily had a mental health visit.

I would have complied, turning in my ammo first.

    A relative had to turn his guns over to California during some PTSD treatment. When he completed his treatment and was judged sufficiently safe to have his guns back, the state said no, because he couldn’t prove he owned them legally. Innocent until proven guilty apparently doesn’t apply. After paying $200 per firearm and threatening to lawyer up, he eventually got his weapons back. Yes, I know, don’t live in California. He learned that one too.

    This is why I don’t believe in “prohibited persons”.

    If you are so mentally ill that you can’t be trusted with a gun (or car) you should not be on the street. If you are a felon who can’t be trusted with a gun (or knife) you should not be on the street.

    The people in California have the gov’t they want.

    Assuming the quote isn’t made up, here’s what she had to say about it in this Bloomberg article.

    She didnít blame the attorney generalís agents for taking the guns based on the information they had, she said.

    And along with TigerStripe, this is why you don’t want registration.

    True, Veeshir, “they were only following orders.”

    Don’t let them in. Ask for a warrent. May we come in? NO.1 You don’t mind if we come in do you? Yes I do mind. You can not come in.
    No. 2 Don’t register anything you don’t have to. Guns? What guns? I ain’t got no stinking guns.

    They had no warrant. The answer should have been NO, HELL NO, or F**K NO.
