California Begins Confiscating Legally-Purchased Guns
By Travis Melvin on August 23, 2013
It is not surprising that the first police raids to take legally-purchased
firearms from citizens are in California. Until recently, the state had the
strictest gun control laws and the liberal run state government has always
looked unfavorably on the Second Amendment.
Earlier this year, the state legislature expanded the list of what they call
“prohibited persons” – people who have legally registered a firearm but, for
various reasons, are no longer allowed their Second Amendment rights. These
reasons were expanded to include people who are behind on state taxes, did
not pay toll fees in a “timely” manner and a wide range of other minor
misdemeanors or reported mental health concerns.
In preparation for the crackdown, the state authorized $24 million to hire
additional officers to track down 20,000 people on the list. One person on
this list was Joe Mendez.
A police officer came to the door and lured Mendez out of his house with a
story of a hit and run report. Once outside, he had M16s pointed within
inches of his face, was taken into custody and had all weapons removed from
his house.
It is important to remember that these were legally- purchased and
registered firearms. That gets to the other issue about this initiative.
This case demonstrates what registration lists really are. They are tools to
allow police to confiscate weapons. And, all they have to do in California
is come up with a reason you should be on the prohibited persons list; a
list that is continuously expanding in its scope and definition.
California gun owners beware: your firearms and rights are being confiscated
by your liberal politicians.
