So it begins. A law abiding citizen of New York state was forced to turn over his gun to the police. The Blaze has the details:
Despite promises from the president and a host of other politicians who are pushing for more gun control that nobody is coming for your guns, the confiscation of guns and gun permits has apparently started in some form in New York State. One attorney representing several people who have been forced to surrender their guns spoke with TheBlaze and alerted us to some disturbing facts:
- Gun owners are losing their 2nd Amendment rights without due process.
- HIPAA Laws are likely being compromised and the 4th and 5th Amendments are being violated in some of these cases
How did confiscation start happening so quickly? Apparently the gun grabbing was triggered by something inside the NY SAFE Act — New York’s new gun law — that has a provision apparently mandating confiscation of weapons and permits if someone has been prescribed psychotropic drugs.
This is curious because in his January 9th address, Cuomo specifically addressed the issue of confiscation…
Read the whole thing. Cuomo promised there wouldn’t be confiscation, apparently he lied. Do you believe the Democrats in the federal government are any different? The Blaze spoke to the attorney who said his client has no criminal record and was never found to be a threat to himself or others. The man’s doctor never told anyone that he was dangerous, and they still don’t know how the government even found out the client took medication for a temporary problem. The more cases we see like this, the less likely law abiding gun owners in New York will be to seek medical treatment for even minor issues.
It’s one thing for a psychiatrist to warn authorities when a patient exhibits behavior indicative of the patient becoming homicidal. (In the Auroro, Colorado case, the psychiatrist was ignored.) It’s quite another for the government to snoop into the records of citizens and snatch their guns even when their physicians say they are fine. That’s called tyranny.
This is a New York issue for now, but if Democrats (and some Republicans) in DC have their way this will effect everyone. Just think, Obamacare requires electronic records, so it will be easy for the government to find out if you’ve treated for anxiety or depression and use that as an excuse to confiscate your guns.
