    Me too. I'm fortunate to have the resources to fight a legal battle on the basis of principle and I'm stubborn enough to do it.

    I would hope that a class action lawsuit would be in the works somewhere. Actually I hope for much more but stating so will get me in trouble.

    This is bad, but not as bad as the legalized theft of my money (taxes in numerous forms).
    I am legally relieved of as much (or more) of my income each and every year than all the guns & ammo I have is worth.
    My money is then distributed to people that are "entitled" to it (EBT, WIC, free rent, free & reduced lunch, subsidized rent / utilities...
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    I have been told that police are reluctant to return guns because they fear liability if the firearm is subsequently used in a crime. While this is an extremely rare occurrence, it is easy to see how police might use this excuse to fail to take appropriate action.
    Now that's funny because the federal government has been doing what it can to arm criminals but they've never been held liable for it.

    I would sue the individual police (chief/sheriff/officer/DA by name in a lawsuit depriving me of due process.

    It's time for the cops involved in doing things like this to be personally liable for what they've done. None of this "suing the department" and having them pay you with your own tax dollars nonsense. A few newly bankrupt, power-drunk heathens would send a far stronger message.

    I don't agree with the policy, but how is this any different from civil forfeiture of money or real-estate?
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    Agreed, and it's time for them to pick a side and live with their decision. I am not cop bashing since the ones that I know are 2A, straight up guys but these stories tell us there are many that needs to be weeded out.

    The case cited where the officer asked if there were was told they were locked in the truck tool box (where they could not be a threat to the officer) ordered the tool box opened where if the driver was a criminal he could access and attack the officer if he had the mens rea. Then when he did not showing that at least at the moment he was behaving as a good citizen. Then having his property confiscated is wrong on so many levels and must make the job more difficult for the vast majority of officers who do their jobs properly.

    It seems that it really isn't. Both belong in the trash heap of history; the government never should've been allowed to go down that road in the first place.
