If my wife willingly gave my guns to the police without my consent I would divorce her immediately and make an extremely public case against the police department. She said the guns were his, not hers. If they had probable cause to remove guns from her home because of mental illness the rightful owner should have had the opportunity to remove them as he wished, whether that would be selling them or simply relocating them to where she couldn't access them. Or take the guns and leave her. What happened here is that a man was deprived of his property without just cause.

Just to be clear, this issue has been brought up here (where I live). Basically the consensus was that if agents show up at your home to collect your guns, give them the guns. Make a couple of phone calls and in short order the hunting party will get them back. Accepting an order to disarm citizens is a suicide mission, and the military and police in our area that I've talked to completely understand this.

The five great lies of the

Update on Universal Background Check Bill -
"The Senate Judiciary Committee--which is considering a host of new gun legislation--voted 10 to 8 Tuesday to pass a universal background check bill out of committee. The bill would close the so-called gun show loophole, which allows unlicensed individuals to sell their wares at gun shows without running a background check on buyers.
The bill provides limited exemptions for immediate family members who may pass on a weapons as a family heirloom or gift and for individuals who are using a gun temporarily for a sporting event."
