The court concluded that they are entitled to get their 60-plus guns back, along with hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition.

U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts filed an order Tuesday that would allow Thomas Piatek to get his weapons back. That includes 41 guns — shotguns, rifles, handguns and an AK47 — along with more than 100,000 rounds of ammunition.

The weapons and ammo were seized from his Indiana home during an FBI raid in 2009, which led to his arrest. He was imprisoned for two years on charges that he helped plot an anti-government revolt.

Piatek’s lawyer Arthur Weiss said his client will never get those two years back, but rightfully will get his weapons back.

“Since they didn’t engage in criminal activity, their lawfully maintained weapons and ammunition should be returned. The government has no basis to keep law-abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.”
