Gun Confiscation

AmmoLand Gun News

Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Remember all those who denied that firearms confiscation as a result of New York’s new gun laws was too “insane” to even consider?

That it was strictly in the realm of paranoid conspiracy theorists and the “it cant happen here crowd”?

Those were and remain some of the standard replies to anyone who even thought about the possibility, let alone gave voice to it, despite the fact that Gov Cuomo and numerous other officials made public comments about such a plan, as I discussed in my article “Feinstein & Cuomo Admit Planning Australian Style Government Gun Buy Back” .

Elected Officials, the media, various Gun Control Groups and their zealous forced disarmament supporters, even some firearms owners themselves all insisted it was to crazy to even consider.

There’s just one huge problem it is happening now in New York State!
It seems those that tried desperately to warn of such an insidious plot had hit the bullseye with their warnings after all. News came from multiple NY State based firearms enthusiast websites late Friday that confiscations of Pistol Owner ID Cards, as well as firearms and accessories has commenced in NY under the provisions of the horribly flawed, draconian and blatantly unconstitutional NY SAFE Act.

Those folks having their weapons and FID cards confiscated  have been discovered to have been prescribed multiple different types of psychotropic drugs, such as those for Depression or Anxiety. These are known as SSRI ( Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) class drugs and have the potential to cause serious and adverse side effects, something I wrote about extensively last week in an article that went viral in days and caused multiple Anti Gun and Progressive News Groups to initiate a concentrated denial of service hacker attack against Ammoland Shooting Sports News (see Daily KOS ” Keeping Track Of The RKBA Crowd” http://tiny.cc/ug67uw),  in an effort to keep the information from the public.

From NY http://tiny.cc/nyfirearms

“John Doe, an upstanding professional with no outstanding criminal convictions and no history of violent action received a letter from the Pistol Permit Department informing him that his license was immediately revoked upon information that he was seeing a therapist for anxiety and had been prescribed an anxiety drug. He was never suicidal, never violent, and has no criminal history. The New York State Department of Health is apparently conducting a search of medical records to determine who is being treated for anxiety drugs and using this as a basis for handgun license revocation.

Those are the facts. Nothing more, nothing less.
Now, before anyone trots out the old saw about how this is nothing more then a paranoid, unsubstantiated rumor on a “gun nuts” internet forum. I spoke to the Attorney of Record in this matter on the phone this morning and he confirmed that the above snippet is accurate and these cases are happening!

James Tresmond Esq confirmed in our conversation that the above mentioned case is occurring in Erie County NY, it is his client that has been effected, and as yet unknown sources have seen fit to take it upon themselves to share confidential medical records with NY State Officials without authorization, a massive HIPPA violation.

It seems these supposedly confidential records are then compared against a list of known NY pistol license holders and letters are sent out demanding their Pistol Owner ID Cards be surrendered, as well as any firearms and accessories.

Here is a link to the Attorney of Record on this case, Jim Tresmond, giving a radio interview on the Tom Bauerle Show on WBEN 930AM/107.7 FM:

http://www.wben.com/topic/play_window.php?audioType=Episode&audioId=6319907

This is an unprecedented violation of a Citizens 2nd, 4th, and 5th Amendment RIGHTS, brought to fruition by power and control hungry tyrants holding elected office who swore an Oath to uphold and defend the very rights they are now actively stripping from their constituents.

Moreover, the confiscation efforts underway in NY State have had another, albeit unintended effect. By undertaking this course of action, those in power have inadvertently pulled back the curtain on something they have suppressed from the Citizens for far to long, leaving them with precious little wiggle room to explain away their actions.

  • Either they are acknowledging that there is in fact some sort of little reported link between the prescribing of psychotropic drugs and violent behavior, thus they are somehow, at least in their own minds “justified” in their actions to preempt someone from violence.
  • Or, this is nothing more then a backdoor confiscation effort and massive abuse of governmental power unleashed on innocent Citizens.

Those are the only two possible explanations.

If anyone still feels some level of doubt regarding the veracity of this story, Attorney Tresmond welcomes anyone to visit his website tresmondlaw.com, Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/james.tresmond.7 ), or send an email to TresmondLaw@gmail.com.

Mr Tresmond asks that those making inquiries be mindful and respectful of the fact that they have been deluged with inquiries in recent days and therefore a personal reply may be delayed or impossible due to the volume.

      what about LEO’s that are seeing shrinks and takeing meds for the s*%t they deal with?

    2. If they really want to end violence with guns, just make it illegal for Democrats to own them. Lanza? Democrat. Columbine shooters? Dem parents. Batman shooter? Democrat. Gabby shooter? Democrat. ALL these mass shooters are Democrats or had Dem parents. It really is a mental disease. If Dems want to demand an end to our Constitutional rights – they should start with themselves, leave it at that for a year or two and watch how no more crimes are committed, and leave it there. They hate the Constitution – fine – deprive THEM of it at THEIR demand.

      You folks in NY State have two simple, easy to understand options: Learn to Goose Step or REVOLT! FYI – Under FEDERAL LAW it is illegal to go through a person’s medical records due to privacy laws. This is why HIPPA as installed, because it is supposed to prevent just this sort of abuse by employers, which INCLUDES LOCAL, STATE and FEDERAL governments, as they are employers and have a product (the function of government is a product) and so by indiscriminately trawling the medical records of its citizens, it is liable for civil and criminal actions brought about by their actions. That John Doe has grounds to sue for invasion of privacy to name a starting point even for the dumbest lawyer.

      This is a good one for the ACLU to take up. This is the Trojan Horse of gun control. They will simply diasgnose everyone as having some sort of phobia, then say NO ONE in the US can own a gun. Especially Reality Check, who is showing irrational thinking. Read his post. Sell out and move to PA, or the Dakotas. Let NY sink in its financial mess and misguided liberal morass.

      I’m in California. Now Dianne Fenstien is going to try and do the same thing . Get Cities to confiscate guns. Every thing there doing is illegal. you need a court order to go through someones medical records. Even if there in Jail, or have been arrested. Lets see what happens when they start coming after the people who say F U to NYC. This might be the first city in the US to have cival unrest.

      Time to bug out of NY was last week. Get your stuff, pack your tools of freedom up and get out. Let the liberals deal with the rampant criminals who never had any firearms registered and therefor will not be included in the confiscation. When they have had enough then MAYBE the patriots will come in to save the sheeple from the wolves.

      Here we are… PRE CRIME !!!!

      Keep in mind, “mental illness” is being used as a tool to violate the 2nd amendment. And the DHS has classified Christians, Constitutionalists, Veterans, and truthers as “mentally ill”.

      In fact, just distrusting government is classified as “mental illness” dubbed “oppositional defiant disorder” by a bunch of gov paid quack snake oil psychiatrists- who have no basis in medical science whatsoever.

      Criminals don’t obey gun laws, which only disarm citizens from defending themselves from tyranny and criminals. While the DHS stockpiles billions in hallow point, and paper targets of white middle class Americans.

      Can’t happen this is all bill they cannot take your guns. To change the constitution and take your guns 38 states have to agree.

      The NY Safe Act does not have an exemption for LEOs, in fact, it was supposedly an “oversight”.

    14. Its becoming that time. Do not give in to what they say, you have every right to protect yourself and to arm yourself, If they try and take my firearm they will receive the bullets first, Defend the constitution at all costs! Criminals don’t register guns citizens do! DO NOT LET THEM TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU, YOU ARE A CITIZEN OF THE USA AND YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO FIGHT FOR THE CONSTITUTION! THESE SOB’S NEED TO KNOW WE CAN’T BE DISARMED SO EASILY!!!

    15. so file a class action lawsuit and quit your bitching, seriously if it’s wrong and it’s happening use YOUR power and fucking DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, it’s called a phone and a lawyer

    16. Aint no goosestepping.
      Germany never banned guns, Bolshevik J E W Run Russia did and killed 66 million CHristians.
      The same dual citizen Israelis are running America into the ground.

      FBI statistics show Violent Crime decreased 49% since 1992 to levels of 1970. Liberal Democrat Tyrants refuse to tell the truth in their knowingly Ignorant attempt to Lie up Crime statistic with Guns and the So Called Assault weapons useage. Even to go as far as to Hijack the FEMA/State Police School Safety DRILL AT THE INACTIVE Sandy Hook School that was scheduled on 12-14-12 with Crisis Actors, Event Badges and Refreshments and numerous illegally Parked Clustered together Police, Fire & EMS Vehicles not responding to any Emergency. Hijackers of the DRILL EVENT by the Main Stream Media & Murder Movie Hollywood was accomplished by Phony Parent victim ACTORS & UNINVOLVED, UNMURDERED Children related to out of state Real Families. All to create a False Narrative for Gun Confiscation in the Fast & furious Style Gun Distribution to Mexican Drug Lords by the same regulatory Agency to prosecute Gun Crime the DOJ. Gun Crime violence is on the Decline, but not because of the Revolving Door Liberal Fail Justice system which only executed 43/year violent criminals while in China 6000/year will never murder again! Gun Crime Violence was found “not effected whatsoever” by the Liberal FAIL 1990s Feinstin Assault weapons and magazine Ban. Gun Control does nor work; 20,000 laws of Gun Control only effect the Law bidding Citizen who is hindered by ineffective Regulations who infringe upon Personal protection weapons efficency. Gun Control has in the 20th Century Helped Dictators and tyrants Murder 56 million by Democide! So why a 49% Decline in Crime? Because of the Proliferation of Armed Citizens with Concealed Weapons Permits. England now for 15 years has had a gun confiscated society with politicians promises for a safer streets only to result in the contrary with a 5 fold increase in violent crime. The UK has the highest crime of the entire Euro Zone. So as John Kroll book states “MORE GUNS=LESS CRIME

      Don’t turn them in. The letter is just so officials don’t have to go door to door on a suicide mission to try to confiscate firearms.

      I want to know how many will be shot attempting to confiscate the guns of those who refuse to turn in their legally owned guns. There will be a revolt and blood will flow. This is exactally what the democrats want to happen so they can declare martial law and under the guise of a national emergency they will go house to house to collect guns from legal gun owners.

And if you happen to be caught with any unregestered hi cap mags you will be arrested and charged with a class B felony after which you will not be allowed to own ANY firearms, if thats not a prelude to confiscation Ill eat my NRA hat

However I know What I Think Is Right and What Is Being Done To Control Guns Is Wrong. The Following are Facts and Not Paranoia Which is Why Thy Want People To Believe It is as referred to as Conspiracy Theory. Because of The Truth Of Information Act All The following Investigations have Been Revealed To Be True And Accurate. Starting In or About the !970′s Hearings Where Held. The Director of the C.I.A Was Asked questions pertaining to these Programs He Acted Befuddled and Claimed He was Only Getting Bits and Pieces of this Information On Secret Black Psyops Projects. The C.I.A. projects Paper Clip project Monarch project Mk Ultra Using Microwave Technology and More Etc,,, Hired Dr Mengele a Nazi Mad Scientist Brilliant at Brain Research and a Nazi war Criminal. Eventually 9000 Nazi Scientist Researches Where Brought to America after World War II and Hired To Continue Working On Brain Experiments and Mind Control This Was Approved By President Dwight Eisenhower In a Attempt to Send Foreigners Living Here In The U.S To Other Countries To Destroy Those Countries During The Cold War So as Not Be As Threatening To The U.S.A. and The World Including Targeting Russia , China.

The Governments Black Projects Have Killed People Using Mind Controlling Techniques And Made Killers Of Some Unwitting Victims Doing a Shooting of One Or A Mass Shooting. It Is Hypocrisy and Pure Belligerence Blaming These Shooters in a Effort To Gain More Control and Disarm Law Abiding Citizens. This is all True do the research looked up thousand results and on Youtube also. the Motivation Behind Gun Control is of a More Sinister Reason than is able to be seen on the Surface and Appearances are Deceiving Everything Done In Black Psops Projects is Done For a Purpose It is That Purpose These Programs Where Created For To Achieve the End Results.

    30. Yeah, nothing vague or ambiguous about THIS article. It is absolutely amazing what some people are willing to believe…some of you would actually believe the sky was green if Fox News and its affiliate wacko-sites told you so. This is complete hogwash.

      C’mon people. Don’t be sheep. Wake up and smell the gunpowder. You’re being lied to and taken advantage of by people who want you to keep buying guns and ammo…and they are laughing all the way to the bank at YOUR expense.

      Alexander Scipio is a crazy man. The Sikh temple shooter was in a far right band. I guess it’s not convenient to the narrative to mention that.

      Crazy people that kill others come from all backgrounds. JLL wasn’t a democrat so much as an insane person with anti-government insanity all over his MySpace page.

      Who was it that CHP officers had a shoot out with the other year? Oh, a right-wing guy who planned to go shoot up a left-wing organization. Right.

      Stop blaming party politics and get over yourself, because you’re not helping anybody. If we spend all of the time in the world saying “WELL HE WAS A ___insert pointless affiliation here___”, then we’ll never get to the bottom of it. The most important thing is that most of these people were mentally ill in some way or another. That is the one label to give these people.

Our Constitutional rights. NY has long been a cesspool of communist jackasses. Yet they keep voting them back into power. The sickness is not a mental disease but a social one. God save us from our own stupidity. We have done exactly what Ronald Reagan and our founding fathers have warned us not to do. Allow our freedoms to be voted away.

    34. The post above is the only truth I have seen on many of these websites and they are true, research then for your seles and you too will be amazed at how far the powers that be will go to control and enslave you and your for their own bebefits, as has been done in China and Russia, and in many African countries, as wel as Europe, and gun confiscation is the end all result, and there are killers among you now just like the Lanza dipstick who have been programed to seek out those who they most fear, and it might be you who is on the list, and they fo have list people they have them and they also know who owns the guns in every state, because when they do a back ground check the information goes to the AFTE agency and they keep them, surprise, I was a gun dealer and sent the same information to the California Government in Sacramento as per law both Federal and State.

      If they are getting this information from medical professionals, then the people who are getting their gun rights taken away need to sue the medical professional. HIPPA is to health care what atty-client privilege is to a criminal. I guess that confidentiality only pertains to the gov’t, not the health care field.

      We are living in what is known to many as the last days. In order to protect our rights, we will have to become criminals.

The US of A is turning into a country that is no better than North Korea, China, or any of the other dictatorships the world over. We were a democracy. Then we turned into a republic. Now we have nothing more than a group of Tyrants turning our beloved country into a military state. When will America stand up and fight back. When will americans say we have had enough! It is no longer a matter of whether or not we as Americans stand up for our rights, but when. They are being stripped right and left, and the longer we stand by and watch, the harder this struggle will be. I pray everynight for our great country. I fought for it. I bled for it. And I weep for it everynight as I watch what is happening to it. WE HAVE DONE THIS TO OURSELVES. NOW WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, WE MISS YOU!!!!!

      I think this story is a scam of some sort. I believe the author talked to the attorney but I question the legitimacy of the attorney. I can’t find anything credible about him. His email address is a free gmail account. His web page is a generic template with no links, his facebook page is old and outdated. There were several news station that reported he was filing a class action suit against the state earlier this year, but it appears none of them verified the stories they reported. He looks very unprofessional in these stories and hasn’t even put his dentures in for the interview. I think this is someone just trying to stir up trouble or has an ulterior motive for spreading untrue stories.

Some of you need to get your info elsewhere, CHEESY – go to the monticello website and put in that quote you say Jefferson made and you’ll see that he never said anything even remotely close to it, BULL SHIT et al – the NRA was the one who said medical records for the mentally ill should be in the system because they should not be allowed weapons, SCIPIO – best recheck your sources since it’s either impossible to say some of them were Democrats since that info isn’t publicly available or that more likely they weren’t Dems because of past association with Republicans or Libertarians, at least you didn’t mention since Cho wasn’t an American citizen and couldn’t vote even though he could legally buy weapons.

      I’m sure that no one ever thought it could happen to them when Hitler, Stalin, etc., etc., came into power & did it to them either…Then , before they knew what happened, millions of DEFENSELESS people were murdered…..whether this story is true or not, don’t believe that it couldn’t happen in the U.S., because it can happen ANYWHERE, if the people let it happen….History tends to repeat itself….ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ

    48. Folks…spelling and punctuation. Some of you REALLY should look into it. At the very least, I could get through one of your rants without laughing so hysterically.

      Here’s a couple other things to look into:

      * If you’d read the 2nd amendment instead of having Sean Hannity just regurgitate it to you, you’d know the word “guns” does not appear. It says “arms”. And we all agree that, you can’t have tanks and missiles, even though those things are “arms”. Saying you can’t buy a cop-killer weapon does NOT mean you can’t have a gun. It just means you can’t be better armed than the Marines.

      * The Constitution, and the rights it gives you, was not given to you by your Creator. You’re thinking of that OTHER really old document…the one that’s on the “church” side of “separation of church and state”. The Constitution came from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and all those guys back in 18th century…about 1800 years after the guy you’re thinking of. Neither God, Jesus, Mohammed, Allah, or any of the other holy people had anything to do with writing it.

      * Again, NOBODY is coming for your guns. Has the guy in the black-ops outfit flown the helicopter into your backyard to come confiscate your AK-47? Didn’t think so. And here’s a news flash…he’s not coming. Put down the Kool-Aid, turn off Rush Limbaugh, and join the rest of us in Common-Sense land, if you can find your way there without leaving a trail of breadcrumbs.

    49. [...] I have to admit, these guys work fast.  In Erie County, New York if you are prescribed antidepressa…  This is exactly what they said are the paranoid delusions of gun owners, and would not happen. There are many problems with this, the number one being a massive H.I.P.P.A. violation along with the violation of several Amendments of the Constitution. [...]

I for one ain’t gonna turn my weapons in to the gun grabbers. And if they come and try to take them, I’ll feed them the business end of them!!!

      Something I haven’t seen talked about is getting to know your neighbors. Get to know who is for and who is against gun rights in your neighborhood. See who would be willing to come over and help defend you and your family. There are few places now where most people know their neighbors. If they come to confiscate your guns illegally an entire neighborhood would be pretty intimidating to a group of police trying to conduct a search and seizure. Remember that most police don’t want to confiscate, but they still want to feed their family and if you give them a good reason they will leave. Hopefully they realize that if an entire community is standing up to them that running in guns a blazing is not a good idea. Remember their is confidence in numbers, that is why they don’t show up in small number when conducting a search. All it is going to take is one group to stand up to this lunacy to wake the sleeping giant.

      I live in a liberal little town on the East Coast where your neighbors would stab you in the back in a heartbeat…but they’ll still come running to you for whatever “help” you might offer them, as long as it was for FREE. I’ve made it known in this town that I’m pro-America, I’m pro-Constitution, I won’t take shit off of any of them, and my neighbors shun me. I also happen to be the best-armed individual on my street, and I’m interested to see how these cowards react when TSHTF. I bet you ANYTHING they’ll be on my front porch, pleading for me to loan them a firearm and a box of ammo.

    54. Then they should get paid if they have a sickness that enables them to carry or own then they should get paid SSI EBT and HUD housing fare is fare , but remember these people they are taken from and others will get smart and give freely and start to buy other places for protection , I see revolution and it’s going to go down maybe the people are weak in NY but in other parts of the country it will not happen with out a fight , watch when crime is on the rise , see if the police show and they won’t because they will be to busy with the murder or rape that was committed 2 hours early , just say it and stop beating around the government bush you are all now fuck ! you are all one step closer to stepping on the FEMA train to the FEMA camp to be disposed of , the dogs of war are getting ready to wake up and there’s a lot of ass to chew up.

    55. i would really like to see the sources of information for this article. with so many serious issues here its important that all discussions and media opinions are very accurate and responsible.

      Anyone who doesn’t believe that James Tresmond is an attorney can look him on the NYS Courts website. He is a licensed attorney in good standing. And he is also the one who has already prepared litigation against NYS in western NY. It’s a class action lawsuit, and people are still signing up. He represents a number of individuals who have been ordered to turn in their firearms.

    63. Karen T. on April 9, 2013 at 7:20 AM said:

      Define “mentally unstable”- women who have had severe post partum depression usually get that depression resolved with meds and time. Are they mentally unstable? There are lots of people with depression, anxiety and the like, who have their condition controlled by meds and are nto a danger to society…would I want a sociopath or psychopath to have a firearm? No…but do I think everyone who has been diagnosed with depression or anxiety to lose their firearms? NO. because many of them are NOT mentally unstable.

      Who ever said Germany didn’t ban guns for civilians have no idea what they are talking about. It was a crime to have any kind of gun, in NAZI Germany unless you were military or some kind of the many police they had at the time. They also banned guns in all the countries they took over. Made it very hard for the freedom fighters in France, Poland, and all other countries.
      Mental illness is just a jumping off point to take guns. The gun grabbers are crazy. Anything can be used. They will always come up with something to take your guns, so if you go along with mental illness, they will find a way to put you in that category.If someone has lived 40 years with some kind of “mental illness,” owned guns, and never hurt anyone, this is no reason to take guns from them. Few people who are mentally ill are violent. Yes, some own guns and hunt and do the same things we do. Going on a witch hunt of mentally ill will only backfire in our face. It is a trick of the gun grabbers to say,”if you want to own guns, that classifies you as crazy and mentally ill.” See where these people are going with this. There are no limits. Unless someone has been PROVED to be VIOLENTLY mentally ill and have been put in a hospital and said to be dangerous by those doctors, there, they can’t be found guilty of any crime before they commit one.

      Unfortunately, I am afraid there is going to come a time that a NY gun-owner is going to be prepared and waiting for them to come knocking on their door and it will turn into another blood bath because NY legislators and politicians didn’t think about what they were doing or putting in place… the bullies in office now showing up on your doorstep and confiscating your stuff, this is not going to fair well for either side in the end.

      To take or not to take that is the question here. No my fellow pats, the answer is they will take them if WE do not stand up to them, amen. If anyone of you out there believe as some herein that they are not going to take them you are deluded. Just look at moden history and know that is their ultimate plan for the “One world Government” to have it all their way with US. There are many out there that wish to disect the USA into parcels. We own the world money and now that we cannot pay them back, they willtake it from US if WE let them. So, what will you do or have you done today to stop this takeover of our “Free” Nation today????

    69. I’m from NY and the confiscation as cited by lawyer Tresmond is true and real. Others in the free states take note, it CAN happen to you. Many here doubted our representatives would sell us out, and then they did just that. Those who back the 2A will not forget come election time… for years to come.

And sure people will say “bla bla bla liberal obama lover” or whatever. But i didnt vote for obama, and i love guns! I own 3 12 gauges, a .45 glock, a .357, a .380, an AR-15, and an Ak i got a few weeks ago.

      @Wow on April 9, 2013 at 12:01 AM said:

      Here’s a couple other things to look into:

      * If you’d read the 2nd amendment instead of having Sean Hannity just regurgitate it to you, you’d know the word “guns” does not appear. It says “arms”. And we all agree that, you can’t have tanks and missiles, even though those things are “arms”. Saying you can’t buy a cop-killer weapon does NOT mean you can’t have a gun. It just means you can’t be better armed than the Marines.

      -> What constitutes a firearm being a cop killer, is the intent of the user. What you describe as being a cop killer, I would call a life saver (notice that even cops use those firearms). The word arms, implies the ability to defend a free state, if you were as informed as you purport, you would know that most of the principle writers of the Bill of Rights took issues with a standing army (see Marines). Standing armies were viewed as a means to oppress where history had proven that they would eventually lead to tyranny.

      * The Constitution, and the rights it gives you, was not given to you by your Creator. You’re thinking of that OTHER really old document…the one that’s on the “church” side of “separation of church and state”. The Constitution came from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and all those guys back in 18th century…about 1800 years after the guy you’re thinking of. Neither God, Jesus, Mohammed, Allah, or any of the other holy people had anything to do with writing it.

      -> Umm, the endowed by our creator is rooted in several documents that don’t directly relate to the Bible and came centuries after Jesus walked the earth. Thomas Jefferson, the writer of the ‘Separation Letters’ and the Declaration of Independence, believed in the idea of natural law. Jefferson drew heavily on the writings of John Locke, using his Second Treatise of Civil Government as the basis for the case against the throne of England. John Locke’s basic premise was that all people had the inherent right to self defense, and that people join into society for the purpose of a greater means of defending themselves, where free men have the right to defend against and prevent tyranny. So, I would suggest that you do a little more research – I would personally start with the Declaration of Independence, paying close attention to the “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” maybe, after reading that, you might take the time to get square up your original idea?

      * Again, NOBODY is coming for your guns. Has the guy in the black-ops outfit flown the helicopter into your backyard to come confiscate your AK-47? Didn’t think so. And here’s a news flash…he’s not coming. Put down the Kool-Aid, turn off Rush Limbaugh, and join the rest of us in Common-Sense land, if you can find your way there without leaving a trail of breadcrumbs.

      -> If the reports in the article you are commenting on are true, then there certainly are those who are having their firearms confiscated. Using the black helicopter rhetoric doesn’t serve you very well.

    78. Now if the U.S. Senate see fit to vote the UN’s ATT in to being we are all going to be really screwed.
      What is it going to take for people to wake up and smell the coffee in this country?

      I figure I am screwed anyway. Since I am a trained combat vet. An ex cop. A card carrying member of the NRA. And if all of that is not enough according to DHS I am a member of the 3rd largest Terror group in the USA. The American Legion

      If you really want gun control lightened, you need to solve the problem behind the laws. Mass killings are going to happen regardless of choice of weapon. The other much larger statistic maker for gun violence is gang related, and its not even the largest account for gun related deaths (suicide is), but if you wanna stop gang violence, then you gotta cut their funding. I call for an end to the prohibition of sex, drugs, and full-auto Rock’n’Roll firearms. Legalize prostitution and recreational drugs, and you effectively destroy the ability for organized crime to fund their armies. When there are less reasons to protect the people from these thugs, there are less reasons to restrict gun ownership.

      NY better make sure that if they are confiscating from every day citizens that they also take a look at their own officers.

      This is what the NRA and their French President have been asking for.

    96. Since all these so-called “officials” in charge seem to be the ones making all the evaluations of people, gun owners in particular, I want to know and have always wanted to know WHO IS GOING TO WATCH THE WATCHERS? WHO WILL EVALUATE THE EVALUATORS? WHO WILL CONFISCATE FROM THE CONFISCATORS? Those just “following orders” should be the first ones to be taken out. All the advice in these posts that say “don’t turn them in” may not be able to understand the pressures here. People have jobs, bank accounts, homes, families, and they are between the rock and the hard place. I don’t have all the answers.

      They make TONS more money from prohibition than they ever would in a free country. That’s the ONLY reason prohibition exists because they have proven over and over that they don’t give a rat’s a55 what the People want.

    98. I would like to address an earlier post from Doubting Thomas on April 9, 2013 at 12:05 PM. Here is the quote “I find it fascinating that there is not one shred of actual EVIDENCE to support this, just “somebody said it was true,” … “Thomas” is trying to de-rail this discussion by making you think he has really done his homework and those of us who believe this is true haven’t checked out our facts. This attorney (unlike “Doubting”) is for real and he is opposing New York’s new gun law based on the 5th amendment. Doubting Thomas, you are either for gun grabbing, or are a pseudo-intellectual. I invite you to go to the following web site: http://www.wgrz.com/news/article/196500/1/Local-Attorney-Plans-Lawsuit-Against-NY-Gun-Law
      This will take you to the news broadcast of a local TV station in Buffalo, NY, covering this issue with an interview with the lawyer. “Thomas” – shame on you.

    99. For all the doubters,
      Here is a link to the Attorney of Record in these case Jim Tresmond giving a radio interview on the Tom Bauerle Show on WBEN 930AM/107.7 FM discussing this.

    100. When are they going to take the guns from the cops too …they are citizens too …if you take the guns away from the people, are you saying cops aren’t people? Are you taking them also from the rich and politicians? Now most important how are you going to ensure you are taking them from the criminals?
      Also in a technological society when the gun is considered a primitive weapon, you’ll probably either see a ‘lower’ weapon or much more dangerous weapons come out and crime to rise. Remember if you can’t trust the citizens with a firearm and you are a citizen, then you really can’t trust yourself …are you sure you’re making the right choices? Remember if a law abiding citizen is not authorized to have a gun then ANYONE with a gun should be treated as a criminal regardless, of badge, rank, or position. Anyway, removing guns from law abiding citizens in the US is an act of overthrowing the government or treason whether it’s internal or external to the governing body since in reality most threats are actually internal to an organization.

      Nothing but a bunch of Socialist basturds. I would take my handgun(s), permits, etc., to a bank and lock them up in a safe deposit bank and turn the key over to a (trusted) friend. The authorities would be told that they have no legal right to confiscate personal property without due process, and that until that was ultimately determined by the highest court to which you can appeal, they would not get the gun. The permit is a moot point since you aren’t in possession of the gun(s) it was issued for. Again, it’s ALL a matter of due process, not activist politicians in a police state.

      Time for everyone in every state to find a hideaway (or oil heavily and wrap in plastic and bury it) for your guns off your property, e.g., buried in airtight containers in the woods, or a storage facility that only you and your closest friends/family know about, move it to another state and go there when needed, etc.

      The time is coming where all states will be subjected to Federal quasi-military assaults on those firearm owners, and we may all have to support the individual states and groups of people.

      Given that the federal government is legislating pains and penalties to an easily ascertainable group through registration, this constitutes a BILL OF ATTAINDER, outlawed by the U.S. Constitution.

Once we get into mass confiscation, there will be reason to worry- it does no good to the cause to blow things out of proportion and make the situation appear it’s something it’s not.

      @drummerboy

      This has nothing to do with national health care. Canada has had national healthcare for decades and their gun laws are becoming more lax.

      The 2 cases I know of involving vets, BOTH vets were diagnosed with bad cases of PTSD. Again in BOTH cases they were REPORTED to have a significant threat to themselves or others. The fact that more vets have died due to PTSD suicide than have died on the fields of Afghanistan can attest to how bad PTSD can be. It’s not like someone is trolling the national health records (which were a national database LONG before “national obamacare” came in to play) to disarm Americans- if that were the case, over half of us would lose our guns.

      Again, this single case is being used improperly as a wedge and making us logical “gun nuts” look bad at the hands of a few kooky opportunists who live in fear of hypothetical and blown out of proportion situations.

      If they are getting this information from medical professionals, then the people who are getting their gun rights taken away need to sue the medical professional. HIPPA is to health care what atty-client privilege is to a criminal. I guess that confidentiality only pertains to the gov’t, not the health care field.

      There is little to no similarity between HIPAA and attorney client privilege. There are numerous exceptions to HIPAA and HIPPA specifically permits disclosure of protected health information as required by law. This alone creates a hole big enough to put an aircraft carrier through since any law will do whether it was passed before or after the HIPAA statute. See below.

      HIPAA does little to keep your information from government agencies if they want it, unless the healthcare provider just refuses to comply. They can then force compliance with a court order and with negative licensing actions.

      http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/understanding/summary/

      “Required by Law. Covered entities may use and disclose protected health information without individual authorization as required by law (including by statute, regulation, or court orders)”

      There is probably a NY state law requiring this information to be reported to the state already. They are now probably using the information that has been previously reported as opposed to going out and collecting it fresh from individual providers.

      That’s not a “fact”. It’s a false claim that you cannot support.

    137. HIPPA permits release of protected health information when:

      “Required by Law. Covered entities may use and disclose protected health information without individual authorization as required by law (including by statute, regulation, or court orders).”

      This is obviously a hole big enough to drive a truck through which renders HIPAA virtually useless for keeping PHI from prying government officials. If they want it all the have to do is pass a law, if they don’t already have one.

A major component of these SSRI/SNRI drugs, such as Prozac, Paxil, Lexapro, etc., is fluoride, the same toxic “drug” that is added to the water supply in 60 + percent (and nearly every major city) of the US . . . so, technically, the vast majority of us are on anti-depressant and/or anxiety medication, even though it is not prescribed by a doctor.

What was the actual medical diagnosis? And what in the letter says that they are doing a “records search”?)

      So-called “story” is high on innuendo and lacking for truthfulness and facts.

      I call bullshit on this “nut with a blog” post. I find it much more likely that the THERAPIST who prescribed the drug reported the guy out of worry about what he’d do.

    158. The powers that be are well on their way to creating a ” papers please” police state. Last Sunday my wife and I decided to go for a bike ride. About an hour into our 15 mile trek my wife asked me to stop for a water break. We chose a nice little clearing under a massive oak along the road way to stop. While we were sitting under the tree drinking water and talking, a police cruiser stopped in the right lane of the road and put on his flashers. The officer got out and asked us what was going on. My wife explained that we were taking a water break. The officer asked us to produce Id’s, then my wife was asked to step over to the cruiser. The cop began to question my wife about me, does he have any firearms in his backpack, was he arguing with you, are you afraid to tell me the truth. When I heard my wife getting angry, I started to walk over and was immediately ordered back to the tree. After he ran our Id’s and realized that we had absolutely clean records( I have a CCP) He apologized and returned our ID’s. As he was leaving I asked him why he stopped…his answer – ” Our force is trying to be more proactive, these field interviews give us an idea of who were dealing with in different daily situations.

    159. The REAL problem remains that over the past four or five decades, WE, THE PEOPLE have ignored our responsibilities and duties as citizens to actively MAINTAIN our government and the elected or appointed officials. We see a football stadium packed with 60,000 people, but we cant get 60 people to show-up at the city council or county commission meetings. THAT is how WE are responsible for what we are facing right now! We are getting our asses handed to us for our complacency. Hell, after questioning MOST citizens across the United States that are always the first to complain? 95% of them aren’t even registered to vote!

      Minor corrections to your list–
      These 2 entries are the same event
      -A young man in Huntsville, Alabama (Ritalin) went psychotic chopping up his parents with an ax and also killing one sibling and almost murdering another.
      -Jeff Franklin (Prozac and Ritalin), Huntsville, AL, killed his parents as they came home from work using a sledge hammer, hatchet, butcher knife and mechanic’s file, then attacked his younger brothers and sister.

      Also
      -Hammad Memon, age 15, shot and killed a fellow middle school student. He had been diagnosed with ADHD and depression and was taking Zoloft and “other drugs for the conditions.”
      took place in Madison, AL, next door to Huntsville.

    173. @jefe

      It’s UNLAWFUL for the government to restrict ANYONE’S 2nd amendment rights; either by “adjudication” or anything else.

      “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” makes no exception for criminals and crazies.

      If you want to feel safe, you have to carry your OWN protection because there are no laws that will protect you.

      Gun advocates should be happy about this.

      Since Newtown, gun “enthusiasts” have consistently blamed everything BUT guns and bullets. Guns don’t kill people, crazy people kill people, video gamers kill people, four year olds kill people, but guns… they’re just misunderstood.

      So, why, oh why, would anyone who is for “gun safety” and “responsible gun ownership” be agains this?

      Quick, get the list and go buy the guns from the heavily medicated people for a $1 and then promise to sell them the gun back when all this blows over. Be sure to give the person your real address, in case they want to “get a hold of you” sooner.

      There is no such provision in the law. The law does require mental health professionals to submit a report if they believe a patient is likely to physically harm themselves or others, for example if the patient has made violent threats. There is no evidence that the State of New York is covertly receiving medical information on mental patients. I encourage you to update your article to correct these factual errors.

      The NY SAFE Act has not resulted in the government snooping people’s medical records, and there is no provision in the law prohibiting people prescribed certain drugs from owning a firearm.

    177. Hate to break it to you Owen Johnston, but it IS happening, the Attorney involved has confirmed it multiple times , including on a radio interview ( link is embedded in the article ) and now an Albany NY Area TV station has reported it as well, including on camera comments from the Erie County Clerk and a terse, short statement from someone in the NY State Police which amounts to The County Clerk and the State Police pointing the finger at each other.

    178. I live in NY and a persons Pistol permit and weapons were stripped due to him supposedly taking anti anxiety medicine. The problem is the state police made a mistake and named the wrong man.

Never mind these people have no history of mental illness, violent behavior or a criminal back ground.

      Anti-anxiety med’s are also used for other purposes that have nothing to do with one’s mental state, as they also relieve muscle spasms, and other medical problems. I don’t think a bad back is a good reason to take a persons firearms.
      Is it legal to take action against against someone because you think they might possibly do something? If my neighbor likes to get drunk, can I call the authorities and have his car taken away, because he might drive it and kill someone while he is under the influence? I think they would probably arrest me for abuse of the system, if I tried to have that done. Should anyone who goes to AA meetings have their firearms taken away?

      No matter how much ‘stress’ you guys feel like you are under, after our lying, greasy, stinking, filthy neo-con war mongering war criminals managed to lie the US military into fighting this phony global war on terror – I recommend that every one of you guys be very, very careful about going to see some military shrink and then spilling your guts about your stress & anxiety issues. These rats are documenting your every word and those notations become a permanent part of your medical record. They’ll also try to put you on one or more of these isotropic, SSRI types of medications – and if you go along with that, you’ve just allowed your lying, criminal, devious government to nullify your Second Amendment rights.

      When you get out, if you manage to not get killed before you can – and if you go to a gun store and try to purchase a firearm for your self-protection, the forms you have to fill out will have questions about whether you’ve ever taken any of those drugs and whether you’ve been visiting a shrink. If you tell the truth, your purchase will be denied. If you lie, and get caught – you’ve broken the law and could wind up in jail.
