A gun collector who was arrested outside his east-end apartment during a midnight raid has launched a $6.5-million lawsuit against the Toronto police, his former landlords and a tipster.

Peter Sedge, 59, said he was removed from his Beaches home at gunpoint wearing only his underwear during the May, 2008, seizure of about 120 legally collected firearms.

“I was scared because as soon as I opened the door, they were all screaming at me,” he told The Globe and Mail. “I could see guns pointed at me. . . . I totally scrambled at this point.”

The raid came hours after police got a tip about a cache of firearms and ammunition from a man who had viewed the property with his father – a prospective buyer – and Mr. Sedge’s landlord, Court documents say.

    I hope this guy wins his case. This is just another example of the gun-phobia that exists here in Canada. Did any one at T.O. PD bother to check the registry first to see if this guy had permits? No, lets dispatch the Tach-team and scramble the CF-18s and nail this dangerous criminal…no wonder the true criminal elements here can sleep at night.
