    Gun Confiscation

    Hi All
    Thought id post for debate , I have a friend stationed in the military in El paso , TX who had his Glock and his CCW permit confiscated by the police . He was in a store parking lot in his vehicle showing a friend who was interested in firearms and a ccw his glock he unloaded it and cleared the weapon before handing it to his friend in his vehicle . The police that were in a nearby vehicle heard the slide as he cleared the chamber and approached him , he cooperated with the officers they secured his weapon while running the numbers and his ID and CCW they held him for an hour with at least 15 other officer showing up . they gave him back his ID but kept his gun and ccw they said they were holding it for safe keeping no CHARGES !! this was on a Friday and said he could pick it up on Monday he goes to pick it up and they tell him they have to run ballistic test on it and who knows how long that will take. He gets a Lawyer and battles the DA for 3 months before his gun and ccw are returned at an expense of which he could have bought 4 Glocks, with no charges and his lawyer gets a butt chewing by the DA to hand down to him saying they know he is guilty but no charges !!
    that because he is in the military he is playing the military card ? I thought we lived in a free country with a Constitution Please beware especially in El paso TX
    I guess the Police just do as they please there. sorry about the rant but this just has had me hot.

    I'm kind of surprised they gave it back at all... even though he wasn't charged they can play red tape and wild goose chase until the person gives up trying to get their property back.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I thought Tx (as a rule) was gun friendly.

    There must be more to the story, 15 LEO's and a ballistics test....Seems like a lot to me for someone showing a gun to friend. If the cops heard the slide, how close were they and was he flashing the gun in the parking lot. Doesnt add up to me.

    Technically they can't....well depending on the state law they might... it is more to do with bending the rules and taking advantage of vague laws... for example... what is the brandishing law in Texas?
    As many great officers as there are in this country there are always ones that aren't so great. I wouldn't doubt the story. Even if there was some part of it that was blown out of proportion.

    I am sorry, but IMO something smells fishy.

    He wasnt flashing the gun they were in their vehicle he handed it to a buddy to look at and the police were in vehicle right next to them with windows down. He didnt see them until they were standing outside his door.

    Handling a weapon in public is typically a dumb idea. Even if the state allows open-carry. If you want to show your friend your Glock, do it at a shooting range or on private property with the owner's permission. A store parking lot is not a gun show.

    I would think it would be at least covered under the 4th Amend that without charges they couldnt do this .

    That I agree with but if you are a legal citizen in your vehicle your private property I dont see a problem with what he did.

    Gun laws here in NC are strict in a lot of places I can't go in carrying so I lock my gun in my glove box but if an officer sees me take it out and secure it there it doesn't give him the right to confiscate and harass me.
