29NOV2013: Legalized Theft of Guns


““One thing that I think is clear with young people and with adults as well, is that we just have to be repetitive about this. It’s not enough to simply have a catchy ad on a Monday and then only do it every Monday.  We need to do this every day of the week and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.” – Eric Holder 1995 via Godfather Politics

Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- An anti-freedom policy has been spreading across United States police departments, the legalized theft of citizens guns.

Recently, it occurred in Georgia.  I am not talking about forfeiture laws.   They are related but have been covered elsewhere.

This is a problem in many urban areas, and it is spreading.  The policy is to impound guns, in extreme cases, all guns that officers come across, whether involved in any crime or not, then to refuse to return the guns until a judge issues an order to return  them.   As the attorney fees needed to obtain a court order can easily be 10 times what the gun is worth, most people do not bother.

It is a form of legalized theft. 
  
I first learned of this policy from students who were or who had lived in California.  I had numerous students who had dealings with the LAPD. I started hearing stories about how guns were seized, even if there were no crime involved. If an officer came across a gun, it was seized, and it would not be returned until the LAPD received a court order demanding that it be returned. As hiring a lawyer to obtain a court order could easily cost thousands of dollars, very few people even tried.  I also heard that some judges, who had a personal animus toward firearms ownership, simply refused to grant an order.

Here is a case related by a student:  The student was stopped for a routine traffic stop.  While stopped, the officer asked him if he had any guns in the vehicle.  The student replied that he had rifles locked in the tool box that was attached to the bed of the pick up truck.  The officer demanded that the student open the tool box, which he did.  The officer then confiscated the rifles.  The student was never charged with a crime, but the police refused to return the rifles unless they received a court order ordering them to do so.

This reverses the presumption of innocence and the presumption of ownership that goes with possession of an item.

In 2005, a California law was passed requiring people who had firearms impounded by police to fill out forms sent to the State government, and be certified as being eligible to legally own a firearm by letter, before the firearm can be returned.

Even with this state imposed certification, many departments are still requiring a court order before they will return lawfully owned property.   SAF and Calguns settled a lawsuit against Oakland and San Francisco for refusing to return firearms.

  • Cleveland recently settled a case where they refused to return a firearm to the lawful owner.
  • In Arizona, a reform was passed to require issuance of a receipt in firearm seizures.
  • In Wisconsin there have been a number of settlements where guns have been returned, often with a cash settlement to cover lawyers fees, although these were primarily for illegal arrests involving firearms carry.

I have been told that police are reluctant to return guns because they fear liability if the firearm is subsequently used in a crime.   While this is an extremely rare occurrence, it is easy to see how police might use this excuse to fail to take appropriate action.

One remedy is to educate the police as to their liability if  they *fail* to return property to its legal owner.   The lawsuits mentioned above are useful for that purpose.   Often, a letter from an attorney, threatening legal action, can spark a desired response.   Once, I was able to obtain the return of a firearm simply by showing up at the crime lab and asking about its disposition.   I was asked if I was a lawyer.  I noncommittally said that I had studied the law.  I was immediately told that the firearm would be returned (and it was).  Another solution is public awareness.  Policies can be changed more easily than legislation.  Public pressure and lawsuit settlements can result in a change of polices.

If your firearm is seized or impounded, insist on a receipt, then follow up with documented requests for the return of the firearm.   Inform activists groups of the situation.   This may lead to pro-bono legal action or necessary funding for the same.

I have encountered officers who think that impounding firearms and making their return difficult somehow “gets guns off the streets” and makes crime less likely.   The passage of laws that mandate the return of firearms to legal owners and the sale, rather than destruction, of “found” firearms helps to short circuit that assumption.  It reinforces the fact that firearms possession is a constitutionally protected right.

This is primarily a problem of police policy and attitudes.   Most court actions result in the firearm being returned.   The difficulty is that the owner should never have been forced to go through the legal process to have his property returned in the first place, or the firearm should never have been impounded to begin with.  The conversion of police thinking about firearms from “contraband” to “constitutionally protected property” is what is needed to stop this form of legalized theft.

20NOV2013: Low Flying Helicopters: training exercises underway in skies over Phoenix, Scottsdale AZ Area


Editorial Comment: The United States has become a giant training ground for the endless fabricated and simulated wars across the world. Meanwhile, a giant police state grid strategically has been engineered and built around every American in the nation. A two-fold grid. One side visible to the naked eye (cameras, exercises, police, government contractors, DHS, TSA, etc..) and the other side is invisible to the naked eye (NSA spying, silent drills, etc..).

A strategic plan that entails a mental on-going message of ‘safety and security’ to be indoctrinated into the new nation of worker bees…

The business plan and advertising campaigns for National Preparedness in every government agency has become the proof that the Military Industrial Complex is becoming the world’s police state. More and more drills are being performed upon the nation, as well as full-scale militarized psychological operations. We know what the excuses are ‘they’ give to us as to why they are performing more urban drills across cities, but more Americans are becoming concerned following recent revelations exposed including: the U.N. Small Army Treaty, the desecration of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the desecration of America economically, the build up of a giant cash-cow police state, invasion of privacy, theft of property by banking fraud, endless illegal wars, and more… a hostile takeover comes to mind that may be weighing heavy on many American’s hearts.

Part of these drills are also thought to be ways to condition the American Citizen into allowing our country to take part in endless corporate wars for profit, while introducing the delusion that it is all for love and humanitarian reasons… Keep funding the black ops… it’s a vicious cycle.

All for the safety and security following 9/11… or, is it? Are we just part of the Elite’s chess game that once a country is demoted to third-world, it can become a dilapidated real-life video game training ground and giant prison? A nation of prisoners within our own communities…

Amerika? You decide…

Shame on you Sheriff Clarence Dupnik

Opinion| Shame on you Sheriff Clarence Dupnik

Please Apologize and Retract your idiotic statements to the public ~ Show your OATH, or step down.

After the very disturbing and violent massacre took place in Tuscon , AZ, that killed Federal Judge John McCarthy Roll, at least six people, and injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, by alleged gunman Jared Loughner, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik went on a radical power trip on camera blaming radio hosts and anyone who criticizes the government for the violent act. Sheriff Pima County Clarence Dupnik calls out vitriolic, hateful rhetoric at a press conference in response to the assassination attempt on Rep. Gabriella Giffords and the murders of others at the scene.

“When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous. And, unfortunately, Arizona I think has become sort of the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry.” – Sheriff Clarence Dupnik
“That may be free speech, but it’s not without consequences.” – Sheriff Clarence Dupnik

So basically, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik wants to blame American citizens who do not agree with the government’s current goals, agenda, and monetary policies. It appears that liberty and freedom are to blame for this twenty-two year old troubled man’s violent act. Why would the Sheriff make such a statement attacking free speech and then make the statement “it will not go without consequences?” Consequences? Is that a threat to the American people who speak out against governmental corruption, tyranny, and unconstitutional acts being committed by our current government? Shame on you Sheriff Clarence Dupnik.

It seems that the media wants to blame ” left-wing liberal pot smokers” for this horrific act that happened in Arizona. It smells like the same as usual disinformation that is put into the mainstream when it comes to violent acts committed. If it is not disinformation, then it is just the reflection of how unintelligent Sheriff Dupnik is or evidence that he may have taken the wrong oath. If Sheriff Clarence Dupnik had any decency, he would apologize to the American people for such asinine statements and show to the public his OATH to defend the Constitution.

According to Sheriff Mack , he said in an online interview today with Alex Jones, “he and Sheriff Babeu were both attacked for their stance against immigration, and Sheriff Dupnik is telling Americans they should be quiet and obey government so that it doesn’t provoke a psychopath to do something stupid.”

This act of violence smells like the perfect opportunity for the government to quickly exploit the situation and pass stricter laws to take away all guns and ban freedom of speech.

Quickly after the incident, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used. He had approximately 18 rounds of ammo. Does that sound like a stockpile to you? Sounds like a way for the “gun-grabbers” to get our guns so that we can be left defenseless as the economy is falling apart, more people become addicted to dangerous pharma mind-altering drugs, and poverty levels rising.

One hero, that helped tackle the suspect, lets America know in a video below that he was carrying a gun and that he would have used it on the suspect if they were not able to take control of the situation. He felt no need to use it because he and others had detained the suspect using their bodies. This incident is a clear example of how important our constitutional right to defend ourselves, especially today, when we are seeing the fall of our Republic.
