Bet they will take weeks to do it.
Since when did having a large collection of firearms mean that Illegal siezure of property could take place. Police could just take down the serials and run them. Police admit the man has a clean record, so what gives.
so how many of us would need to be checked, for community safety of course. And how many weapons would it take, what's the cutoff point? 12 rifles?
Sounds like a law suit begging to be filed. I'm quite sure I'd be talking to our lovely GCO staff for advice were this to happen to me. Unfortunately I think most of my fellow members would just feel sorry for me if they knew how few guns I actually have.
WHY OH WHY didn't I get into guns before I got married?!!!
The owner had 60 firearms and enough ammo to fill a pickup truck in the house, but can't afford to pay his rent?
Atleast he has his priorities.......
Didn't say he was being evicted for non-payment. Landlord probably saw him open carry to his car or something.
Amish Bill pay your rent.
Maybe they just liked to smoke cigarettes while they cleaned their guns!
When you get evicted, that is, when Sheriff's deputies execute a "dispossessory warrant" signed by a judge, they take all your stuff out and dump it along the road. At that point it's pretty much abandoned property for your neighbors to pick through. The legal theory is that if you didn't intend to abandon your property, you would have either paid your rent or otherwise provided for somebody to store it for you.
But the Deputies can't just put guns out on the curb for anybody to handle or take. Ditto for booze, prescription drugs, pornography, and other restricted items. So while the guns may have their serial numbers checked to see if they're stolen, the MAIN reason the deputies took them is because the police station was the only safe place for them at that moment.
I don't have a problem with that.
Gunsmoker, know that you've explained it, it makes more sense, I have no problem with that either.
Now the next question is...
can we pick through his gun collection at the sheriffs office?
Now that it's explained, yes it does make sense but... doesn't that mean that the LEO's always get first shot at going through peoples stuff?!!!
I believe I would have taken those arms to my house & just brought the serial #s in the next day to run them. Anything that came up with a hit I'd bring in & surrender everything else....
Re: Dangerous Goods
Gunsmoker nailed it.
But I have a MAJOR problem with them stating that they will keep the weapons until they "check them to see if they are legal." That is absolute crap. Do they have any probable cause? Reasonable suspicion? If the answers are "no," they should return the weapons immediately.
I agree they should return them ... but many times the x-tennant can't be reached or may not have a place to put such an arsonal.
