    Residents angry as RCMP seize guns from High River homes

    Hell to pay: Residents angry as RCMP seize guns from High River homes (with video)



    As if the poor people suffering through the flood don't have enough to worry about already. They're understandably upset about the situation - effectively being disarmed, as well, their homes being breached and their possessions being rifled through by law enforcement. I think this would justifiably cause anyone to feel small in an insignificant way, given that if they resist their police's maneuvers, they face arrest or potentially worse circumstances. It is sad to see a civilized society resort to these types of gross abuses upon its people.

    “We just want to make sure that all of those things are in a spot that we control, simply because of what they are,” said Sgt. Brian Topham.

    “People have a significant amount of money invested in firearms ... so we put them in a place that we control and that they’re safe.”

    OK....the town was flooded, the people were kicked out for their own safety and now the cops are going through house by house and taking away anything that they feel might be a danger. That's kind of the price you pay for living in a state centric society. I mean....when you vote the state in to take over your life and then they do just that you're going to get pissed? It's a little late for that, don't you think?

    Gosh, I wonder how they determined which homes to invade in order to take these firearms into custody? I would love to know if they are going to reimburse owners for damages to any secure storage containers/gun safes? I also love the part that the owners will have to prove ownership. You would think all they would have to do is show residency in the home they were confiscated from.

    If they didn't then the state would have taken away their health care too. That's the cool part about being the state when the people give you authority to take over everything.
