California Seizes Guns as Owners Lose Right to Bear Arms

Wearing bulletproof vests and carrying 40-caliber Glock pistols, nine California Justice Department agents assembled outside a ranch-style house in a suburb east of Los Angeles. They were looking for a gun owner who’d recently spent two days in a mental hospital.

They knocked on the door and asked to come in. About 45 minutes later, they came away peacefully with three firearms.

California is the only state that tracks and disarms people with legally registered guns who have lost the right to own them, according to Attorney General Kamala Harris. Almost 20,000 gun owners in the state are prohibited from possessing firearms, including convicted felons, those under a domestic violence restraining order or deemed mentally unstable.

“What do we do about the guns that are already in the hands of persons who, by law, are considered too dangerous to possess them?” Harris said in a letter to Vice President Joe Biden after a Connecticut school shooting in December left 26 dead. She recommended that Biden, heading a White House review of gun policy, consider California as a national model.

    Isn’t that why they wrote this law? Isn’t that the exact kind of people that destroy our rights by abusing a right? Do we offer a drunk the keys to his car? NO why would you defend this guys right when he has a choice give the police your weapons or be locked up, he has been deemed mentally unstable. I am very sure if he ever becomes stable he does have the right to reclaim his possesions. Or buy him new ones.
    No one is coming to get yours, it has been judged un-Constitutional by the Supreme Court to confiscate without a state and federally legal judgement of ineligibility.

  • California is a model of stupidity, and ignorance…..Perfect for Biden….
