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:


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 [email protected]

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.

    1. 1. The Second Amendment: Does not described of what type of Firearms you can have Just say is Firearms in general of all Firearms is in clouded too . I agree! The New York State Should Limit ate the Hand Gun Firearms I.D Card issued by the New York State Police of the new York too> Just Used your Driver State, Driver License to buy all Hand Guns too! Do you agree Sir Or Mam too! Let”s limited paper work too! I do also agree! And Better instant Check back round for Gun Buying Customer with clean Record too, Squeakily Clean Record too! Do you agree ?? Or Disagree? Sir? Or Mam of the New York State too!

    2. this world has justm flat come to sh** the violence our people against each other killing one another if I had a firearm id be dammned to give up my only protection against the crazed sh*t in this world today why cant people get along this is whats ending us all this crap and it steadily worsens instead of somebody doing something about it they make it worse by threatening to take firearms or bringing up slavery anything to get any violence started u people r ready god bless and may god forgive us all its going to come down to just war flat war people have complately lost their dam minds

    3. As an infantrymen in the army, I would never fire at any us citizen for refusing to turn in their weapons. In fact if such as order was given I would probably question the legitimacy of the us government and I would protect the constitution and the people from anyone trying to harm them.

    4. Unless the oath has changed since I was in the Navy, the first words are:

      “I do solemnly swear to defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC!” An oath is for life. No one can relieve me of that oath even if I wanted them to, it stands sacred till I die. I hope to God that our military has learned from Katrina, the Constitution comes first. Do NOT follow unlawful orders even if it were to mean desertion or mutiny. If the order is ever given to fire on American Citizens defending their Constitutional Rights, turn your rifle to the traitor giving that order and blow his/her f*****g head off! It doesn’t matter who he/she is, that is your duty to your oath! NEVER FORGET THAT!!

    5. It’s really crazy to me that they can do that. They purchased the firearms legally and now they are basically being stolen from by the government. I hope this never happens where I live in Texas. If it does then it is proof that we don’t live in a free country anymore.

    6. 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.

    7. There are quite of few “americans” who travel from this country to go to Yemen, or Iraq, or Syria, etc to train as Jihadis and then come back to this country using their passports. We know who they are, we know where they were, and we know what they were doing, but we can’t arrest them because you can’t take someones rights away because they MIGHT do something. But it seems NY State can do that.

    8. Well I’ll be doggone, those pro-rights law-abiding firearm owners were right! I guess when lists are made they can and will be used to confiscate firearms from the American citizen.

      Thank-you for this confiscation. We now have objective proof to destroy the anti-gun liars.

    9. i beleive i read an article on gunowners .org that several anti gun incumbents were ousted in the NY legislature.

    10. Firearms that you legally purchased and own, your personal property, and you’re being mandated to surrender them? If that’s not confiscation, what is?

    11. Rather poorly slanted article. The described incident is not confiscation, it’s a law enacted by the State of NY to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. Misapplication of the law doesn’t make it wholesale gun confiscation. This is one case reported by an attorney, who says there is another that he can’t release due to confidentiality. So, two instances out of 16 million people, and no instances reported by any legitimate news service or even listed in any NY court records.

      Hard to believe either side when they use Chicken Little tactics like this article. If you don’t like the law, and are in the jurisdiction, then fight it. That’s your right and duty. The issue here is not the SAFE act, years ago NYS mandated that all prescriptions written be turned over to the state on state reporting forms and state mandated prescription forms. Nobody is protesting that this violates Federal HIPPA laws. Why?

      If you don’t like the law, or the application, vote. So far, it appears that the majority of NYS residents prefer the laws as is.

    12. SO, Let me repeat what they are saying.

      The Servants (yours slaves) of the People which are all of you; Give us your guns or we will use our guns you said we may carry to take your gun because it will make us feel safe from you. Yet every gun crime is in the commission of someone with a gun in a gun free zone.

      And lest you remember that the King of England sent men with guns to take the guns of the People in the New Colonies; aka the founding fathers of these united States of America.

      So my question is this. How are people taking a vote, passing rules, regulations and codes under color of law (not law) in clear violation of the 2nd AMD and nobody cares?

      If cowards are to afraid and irresponsible to arm themselves for self-defense; how does this make sense in your thick heads that this magically allows your slaves the authority to over step the Constitution that binds them? You volunteered to have them control you by “submitting your application for registration” to silence your voice at the Board of Elections.

      The moment your registration you submitted is accepted in your application (which you voluntarily submitted) is accept for value; you have no voice buddy, and it’s your fault.

      Anyone dumb enough to fall for that nazi scheme of turning your weapon over to the servant for safe keeping is screwed.

      How many times has a government full of public servants murdered the people the serve since 1900? How many people were murdered by their own government instituted to protect them? Take a look at the numbers before you fall for the same tricks and deceit and give up your guns…

    13. This is why, EXACTLY WHY, they’ve been pushing their PTSD scheme so heavily. Pumping our returning Veterans with drugs before they even step foot back on our soil. I’ve been screaming about it for years. PTSD is real. I get that. But they are using it to label as many Veterans as possible so they can disarm them. “Want more benefits/money? Here. sign this document saying you have PTSD and we will pay you more.” It’s a nightmare that is rapidly becoming reality. People had better start paying attention and taking this seriously.

      If they want to take our guns away, they are going to have to do it the hard way. By killing each and every last one of us.

    14. When referring to the U.S. why do articles on ammoland prefer the word “governmental” rather than “government”? The former seems to be overly heavy and obtuse, while the latter is commonplace and easier to read.

    15. Too late! Obozo-care, defines “Oppositional Defiant Disorder”(ODD)as a mental illness exhibited by people who have show disobedience and defiance to authority! DSM-4r states “This includes adults who exemplify “paranoia ideation” about the govt and frequently express these delusional ideation on the internet”. What we are doing here, is by definition, reason to have confiscation actions taken!
      They want to make this Nation Wide!

    16. The 2nd amendment says that American citizens have the right to keep and bear arms, and that right SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED UPON! If a mass confiscation is going on in places like NYC and Chicago, then the same is destined to happen all over the USA, and this is a PRECURSOR to some action against the people that the systemic elites know the people will not tolerate…Our history very strongly suggests that the corporations will soon send all US citizens into slave labor camps! Look at the thirteenth amendment very closely…Slavery WAS NOT outlawed!!!The legal right to own slaves simply changed hands from the individuals into those of the corporation!Auschwitz could legally run here with impunity! THEY ARE GOING TO COME FOR YOU! Your most valuable commodity to the elites is your labor. If they cannot have that FOR ANY REASON, then you will be more valuable to them as products than as living breathing consuming bodies…!!!They will soon come for you…

    17. New York Times has an article titled “War Gear Flows to Police Departments” June 8th 2014, but its a pay to view.

      If you search for “War Gear Flows to Police Departments” You’ll find related articles.

      They need this military stuff when they come for our guns!

    18. The only two people I that I knew personally who were seeing a therapist, were active LEO. There are lots of people who take Xanax, an anti-anxiety medication, to help them sleep, reduce stress, while mourning the death of a loved one, deal with particular fears, etc.. Xanax is one of the most prescribed drugs on the market. Many also take it when they fly on an airplane, give a speech, etc.. If anything, anti anxiety medication calms people down. I think what NY is doing is going to reduce the number of people who seek mental help and that will lead to more crime and tragedies.

    19. This is why I would never live there nor ask permission from any authority to own, carry and use if necessary.

    20. To JP and Reality Check. We the people of NYS have filed a class action suit from day one against this unconstitutional gun grab. We are fighting this every single day. Reality check if you think we are all nuts and need to have our guns taken away. I will watch the DHS goon squad march you into a Cattle car o your way to a lovely FEMA camp. rom a very long distance that is as I will choose liberty and freedom over Tyranny

    21. The reports from mental health providers will be cross refrenced with pistol permit holders and those who have REGISTERED ASSAULT WEAPONS.
      This is the New MHL 9.46 enacted 3/12/2013.
      Be aware

    22. Is there a moderator in the house? TWO anti-Semitic comments here will be quoted elsewhere to prove what wackjobs ALL of us are. Leave the Jews out of it.

    23. Tucker: Agreed, the way they treat us vets anymore, I would never tell a soldier to go see a VA shrink. Unless you just want to lose your rights with nothing good coming from it either.

      RedHawg: I once took an SSRI med that was off label prescribed for insomnia, I got terrifying nightmare that night, and can see why people on them go nuts. I quit instantly. I personally have used a gun for self defense in country, though I did not have to pull the trigger as the gun itself was enough to stop the problem. It happens more often than you know.

    24. I do not know anyone that has used a gun against another human being except in war and i am 65 and a vet and I live in gun country. Vets I know throw the ssri meds in the commode. They know what those drugs will do to their minds and they refuse to take them.

    25. A note to all active duty military people.

      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.

    26. Why is it most bible thumpers are uneducated, probably about their own book. Evildores; I assume Evildoers. ‘he will rep gods laws’ I assume you mean ‘reap’, unless your bible includes some odd version of the house of representatives in it. Please ammoland, go ahead and delete this comment and that of ‘moses’ above me, as if you will not delete idiot trolls, I am forced against my will to troll them back. 😉

    27. PEOPLE GET ON YOUR KNEES REPENT OF YOUR EVIL TOO GOD THE FATHER BY HIS SON <HE WILL HEAL THIS LAND SEND ALL THE DEVILS EVILDORES INTO HELL. evil men who do evil in the name of gov are still doing evil they all will pay for there evil, what so ever a mans sows he will rep GODS LAW.
