New York – -( Claiming information from multiple sources that ought to require the resignations of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and State Police Superintendent Joe D’Amico, WBEN Buffalo radio host Tom Bauerle yesterday told listeners he’s had it confirmed that New York State Police are lying when they say they made a mistake when they confiscated an Erie County resident’s guns.

Instead, Bauerle charges, there is a high-level conspiracy to violate the Fourth Amendment rights of New Yorkers that reaches up to the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security.

The claim by the Erie County Clerk that New York State Police had simply provided “bad information” resulting in permit revocation and the confiscation of Amherst resident David Lewis’ guns is not true, Bauerle insists. “I’ve had it confirmed; the New York State Police are lying about him not being the guy they wanted.”

Police weren’t expecting Lewis to get a lawyer, Bauerle says, especially one who knows the Second Amendment.

“They had the guy they wanted,” Bauerle maintains, calling the official excuse “nonsense” and charging Gov. Cuomo “is a monomaniac on the subject of guns.”

What happened, he explains, is that the state has a special HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) unit to search private medical records without warrants, and that Lewis was simply the first person to be caught up in that net.

It’s a scheme “to deprive New York citizens of basic protections,” Bauerle charges, where the state wants “carte blanche to look at every person’s medical records and cross-reference them with pistol permit holders” for purposes of confiscation and permit revocation. According to Baurele, his sources tell him this is being coordinated with officials in the Department of Homeland Security, and there was a meeting in Albany with the New York State Police and the Division of Criminal Justice Services “at the impetus of DHS.”

Bauerle alleges there is “a clandestine squad” violating the Fourth Amendment and circumventing HIPAA privacy protections in order to revoke pistol permits from those who have been prescribed anti-depressants or who have undergone mental health treatment, calling that “tyranny, plainly and simply.”

Max Tresmond, the son of Lewis’ attorney Jim Tresmond, joined the program and told Bauerle their law firm is having information leaked to them from inside the state “that confirms everything that you just conveyed to the public.”

As for next steps, the host and his guest advocated for continuing the investigation, having citizens demand a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations of “a plan to systematically violate the Fourth Amendment,” and also put out a call for more whistleblowers to “come forward,” guaranteeing protection of confidentiality.

“We are in the process of preparing a federal case on behalf of David Lewis,” Tresmond revealed, promising “we will be relentless in our pursuit of the truth.”

The interview can be listened to in its entirety at the WBEN website.

Second Amendment has been upheld as an individual right under the Constitution , Which means the Safe act and NYS overstepped the 10th Amendment and is Unconstitutional.

The “SAFE” (Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement) Act was debated in closed session without committee hearings, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed it into law within an hour of its passage — after waiving the required three-day public comment period. This 80 page legislation was passed late into the night… literally and figuratively under the cover of darkness. There existed no exigent need as claimed, of the Act’s 60 sections, only three (3) took effect on its adoption into law. Cuomo bragged that New York now has the “toughest assault weapons ban” in the country but claimed that the law respects… Read more »

To Mr. Lee-Wright et al, I think you can assume all states are accepting bribes to collude against the non politically connected.

And whether or not the recent spate of public violence were false-flagged.

You can be sure that the State intends to maintain transient empire at all costs, to include a sacrifice or two of non politically-connected conscripts. That’s the way it always is.

NY is the incubator for Statism, all of you who voted democratic, now you see you have sewen the wind and are about to reap the whirlwind

Man – I hate being right about this stuff. But the way they came back with that pat answer so fast – that ridiculous assertion that it was a mistake – no way was I going to believe that. I think they’ve even started sending out reliable mouthpiece Joe Biden to start mocking a big gun grab. I’m really getting sick of all the disinformation coming out of that lying chump’s mouth. Obozo and Jarrett just keep giving him those fake talking points like a good little line worker. What a tool. The DHS involvement shows that the DHS leaker… Read more »

One word comes to mind.. Treason, All public officials take a oath to support and defend the Constitution. Any law or directive or agency that works to deprive the populace of their constitutional rights is at the least illegal if not treasonous.


Note Obama’s #1 priority isn’t the economy. It’s disarming the nation. He doesn’t want us armed when the economy/financial system implodes. Would you if you were him?


Gee you are just now figuring out the DHS is an ILLEGAL organisation.

It seem to me that the KGB from the old Soviet Union was called the department of homeland security. New Yorkers have overwhelmingly supported being a socialist state, so It is a good place for the Feds to start action.

Where will anyone find a “special prosecutor” who is not bought and paid for by the comedy team of Obama/Holder?

DHS did it in NY and tried it to do it in Missouri. How many other states have had requests from DHS for gun owner databases? To what degree has DHS been able to implement this program?
