Home » It’s True: Government is Aggressively Engaged in Gun Confiscation In the US
A report from TruthAboutGuns.com is claiming that New York gun owners are being sent letters from the N.Y.P.D. demanding them to surrender their guns which have feeding capacities that violate the 5-round rule.
Below is an excerpt from the New York Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act (NY SAFE Act).
According to Kit Daniels, “The New York Police Department is now sending out notices to registered gun owners demanding that they give up their firearms, clear proof that gun registration leads to outright confiscations.”
Earlier this year, Canadian journalist Brian Lilley from Sun News warned Americans during his broadcast that gun “registration will lead to confiscation.”
Lilley described how the Canadian government systematically confiscated firearms from law abiding citizens: (1) create a national gun registry to track the sales of firearms, (2) pass laws that ban certain firearms, (3) notify gun owners that they have 30 days to surrender their registered firearms to local police.
New York lawmakers have been lobbying for gun confiscation both locally and nationally. Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R) exposed N.Y. lawmakers’ plans to confiscate firearms earlier this year, see video below.
In an interview, N.Y. Governor Andrew Cuomo stated that gun “confiscation could be an option,” regarding new gun control laws. Now gun owners are seeing his promise of gun confiscation unfolding before their eyes.
In April, the California state legislature passed a bill approving $24 million in order to confiscate an estimated 40,000 handguns and semi-automatic firearms from felons and those who the state deems emotionally unfit to own firearms.
California uses paramilitary teams called Armed & Prohibited Persons System (APPS) to inspect homes and confiscate firearms.
Former DOJ Special Agent, Greg Cameron told Ginny Simone that the majority of those people targeted in these raids should not have been targeted.
Cameron said, “95% to 98% of the firearms we confiscated, I really questioned why we were confiscating them. This whole freakin’ APPS thing is not doing anyone any good. This has amounted to nothing less than “gun confiscation under the guise of safety.”
Cameron described what they would do in a typical raid in order to enter a home without a warrant.
“We would show up with way too many agents for the circumstance, and it didn’t make any sense; there was no need for it. And yeah, the whole place would be surrounded, and absolutely, there’s an intimidation factor there that makes people allow — or think that they need to allow — law enforcement into their house. And if we found out there were guns in the house, then we would confiscate them. I think it is, overbroad, overreaching. I think it’s confiscation under the guise of safety. That’s absolutely what I think it is. And I think this is the crux of the whole issue. You need to know what you can and can’t do when confronted with law enforcement, especially in your own home. I mean, that’s the premise of the Fourth Amendment,” Cameron said.
