APPS Abuse: The Sequel – Another NRA News Video Exposes Cal-DOJ’s Firearm Confiscation Program For What It Truly Is.

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- After the success of its first video revealing some truths about the value of the California DOJ’s Armed Prohibited Persons System (APPS) program, Ginny Simone and NRA News have released a follow-up video containing an extended interview with former DOJ Special Agent, Greg Cameron, who has nothing good to say about the California DOJ gun seizure program in which he has participated.

As part of their efforts to justify increased firearm purchase fees and universal gun registration nationwide, anti-gun California politicians are enhancing a program which identifies people who are prohibited from possessing firearms, ammunition, ammunition components, clips, magazines and speed loaders, and then send out teams of police to confiscate them.

If you are unsure of your status to possess firearms, take action!  Police may be knocking on your door!

Attorney General Kamala Harris claims that this program goes after “violent felons” and people “determined by a court to be mentally ill.”  This “system” doesn’t work that way, and Harris’ claims are not accurate.  The first video, that NRA News recently released, featured accounts from innocent victims of the APPS program, the informed critical opinions of a former DOJ agent who actually took part in APPS sweeps and firearm civil rights attorney, C.D. Michel.  That video revealed the APPS program as at best ineffective or incidental at getting guns from violent criminals, and at worst a campaign of civil rights violations against unknowing accidental and harmless “criminals” mislabeled as crime fighting.

While the idea behind APPS program is good in theory – seeking to disarm the truly dangerous elements of society – the APPS program does not actually do this. Using recent tragedies to make APPS sound like something it is not, anti-gun politicians have mischaracterized what APPS does, and have diverted millions of dollars from firearm purchasers (via the fees they are required to pay for background checks) to step up their gun confiscations.

In fact, as the NRA’s important videos show, APPS suspects are overwhelmingly non-violent, good people who were unwittingly prohibited from firearm possession and typically don’t even know of their prohibited status or that they may be violating the law.  And usually a little paperwork could get them their rights back!  They are hardly the dangerous criminals or scofflaws politicians make them out to be.

There are ways to protect yourself and fellow gun owners!  First, watch the video.  Second, firearm rights attorneys have published a legal memorandum giving a breakdown of the APPS program and tips on how to handle any issues that may arise from it.  Finally, if you find yourself confronted by law enforcement officers for an APPS investigation, invoke your right to remain silent.  You may do so by simply sliding this Notice to Police and Other Law Enforcement Officers under your door or through a mail slot.

Confirm your status and learn your rights! Don’t take the rap for APPS!

      He who attempts to get another man into his absolute power does thereby put himself into a state of war with him, it being to be understood as a declaration of a design upon his life; for I have reason to conclude that he who would get me into his power without my consent would use me as he pleased when he got me there, and destroy me, too, when he had a fancy to it; for nobody can desire to have me in his absolute power unless it be to compel me by force to that which is against the right of my freedom, i.e., make me a slave. to be free from such force is the only security of my preservation; and reason bids me look on him as an enemy to my preservation who would take away that freedom which is the fence to it; so that he who makes an attempt to enslave me thereby puts himself into a state of war with me. ~ John Locke – Two Treatises Of Government
