Title: It Begins: Florida Resident’s Firearms, Ammunition Confiscated Under Gun Control Law

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

The guns and ammunition of a 56-year-old Lighthouse Point, Florida, resident were confiscated by police in what is reportedly the first such seizure under gun control laws signed by Gov. Rick Scott (R) last week.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that “four firearms and 267 rounds of ammunition” were taken from the man, and he was “taken to a hospital for involuntary psychiatric treatment.”  

The seized firearms were listed as “a Ruger LCP .380 pistol, an M2 Mauser .45 pistol, a Charter Arms .357 mag snub nose revolver and a Mossberg 500 12-gauge shotgun.”

The paper notes that “the civil ruling removing his access to guns and ammunition was granted under … new legislation — which permits confiscating guns from people who have not been committed but are deemed a potential risk to themselves or others, according to the order signed by Broward’s Chief Judge Jack Tuter.”

The confiscatory order also bars the man from making new firearm or ammunition purchases.

On March 9, Breitbart News reported that Gov. Scott signed a $400 million gun bill that includes orders which allows a family member or law enforcement to petition a judge to order the seizure of an individual’s firearms. The bill also put waiting periods in place for long gun purchases, raised the minimum purchase age for long gun purchases (from 18 to 21), and banned bump stocks.

When asked about the confiscatory order that resulted in the seizure of the Lighthouse Point resident’s firearms, Mayor Glenn Troast said, “This is not about the Second Amendment and it’s not about the NRA. We need commonsense gun laws and this is a commonsense gun law that gives police officers new tools they need to help us protect our community.”

Officers said they saw weapons in his home after they were called to check on his welfare. They also found evidence he had “a voluminous amount of notes containing numerous references to former President Barack Obama, that he was killed in the 1980s but came back and now murders children to place their spirits into [the man’s] head, is a member of [al-Qaida], and is [the man’s] enemy,” the judge wrote in his order. 'Red flag' laws allow police to take guns from people who show signs of violence

The man was involuntarily committed for treatment in a separate proceeding and it is not yet known when he would be eligible for release, records show. The man did not attend the initial hearing, which temporarily removes his access to guns, because he is hospitalized.

The guns that were temporarily seized were a Ruger LCP .380 pistol, an M2 Mauser .45 pistol, a Charter Arms .357 mag snub nose revolver and a Mossberg 500 12-gauge shotgun, according to the court order. Authorities have also begun the process of notifying federal and state authorities, as required by the law, so that the issue would be flagged if the man attempts to purchase a gun.

All based on a "welfare check" by the local PD. They threw him in the nuthouse to make sure he couldn't appear in court.

Catch 22, can't get there from here.

I feel sorry right now for the folks for whom the Second Amendment was the heart of their political beliefs and their civic-mindedness. The time of the long-feared confiscations is upon us, and with it, the death of a culture and a belief system.

This is kind of light on the facts. The article tells us what law the confiscation happened and tells us it happened but not the specific details of the "offense."

As one of your many supporters, Governor, I believe this irrational move by you was poorly conceived and moves you closer to losing support!

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

" Wascally Wabbits "

Gee, Trump looks so friendly with Bill & Hillary in that photo. Makes it kinda hard to take his " LOCK HER UP, LOCK HER UP " chants very seriously !!!

But then remember his saying " Hillary is good people, she has suffered enough "

And we are supposed to take him serious ?

Yep. Gotta wonder just how much of that "you'd be in jail" drama was nothing more than a result of what the data, mined by the pink haired poodles at Cambridge Analytica, told (D)onald about how to look really yugely cool - in the eyes of the audience Mr. 3 (D) Chess Grifter was was peddling himself to.
