The Milwaukee County District Attorney cleared Nazir Al-Mujaahid of any criminal wrongdoing. Al-Mujaahid fired inside the Milwaukee Aldi on Jan. 30th. Police took his gun during the investigation.

Al-Mujaahid said three times he’s asked police to return the weapon.
“Not only is it frustrating — it’s disheartening, because now I’m feeling like the legal system is coming down on me for some reason,” Al-Mujaahid said. In a statement, Milwaukee Police spokeswoman Anne Schwartz wrote, “Milwaukee Police continue to investigate the armed robbery of a north side grocery store on Jan. 30, 2012.

    Or how about the gun shop owner who finds that burglars cut their way into his shop and cleaned him out- only to find a sheriffs dept. in the distant urban county where the guns are recovered unwilling to return his property. So far as I know his property was destroyed. Seriously, why isn’t this theft? How can even a LE agency have the leeway to arbitrarily confiscate and destroy stolen property? This was just plain WRONG!

    Yeah, like Matt said, never limit yourself to only one handgun, have at least two. Your car has a spare tire, you should have a spare weapon.

    That is something you should know. If you shoot someone you WILL lose your gun until the investigation is completed. Have a second gun and/or have a friend with one because that scum may have scum kin that will hold a grudge. My friends and I have a pact that we will pick each other up at the station with a second weapon.
