    FBI Conducting Gun Sweep in Oakland, CA

    Article here: FBI, local police conducting massive sweep in Oakland | www.ktvu.com

    Looks like they're rapidly enforcing the recently passed SB 140, which allows confiscation from 'criminals' and 'serious mental illnesses.' I know some of us may have differing opinions on confiscation but we can all agree it has been made possible by registration (CA is one of the few states).

    Ugh, I can see veterans next for "all having PTSD" from Feinstein's view.

    "Registration won't lead to confiscation"

    Oh really, now?

    How does the FBI legitimately get engaged in the enforcement of a local law?

    I didn't see such details from the story. Can you elaborate on the facts?

    How did you come up with your statement when the article says that the police did not say what they were doing?

    I couldn't find anything on an outright confiscation of guns, but there was a joint operation involving rounding up gang members in a specific ACORN housing project ..... and guns were conficated from the arrested, but rightly so.

    Thanks for the contribution Snub! I had accidentally closed one tab and forgot to post that link with it.... oops! Figures the second link had more information. I'll see what I can find now but here is California's Senate Bill 140, which was enrolled on 4/23/2013.

    Here is some more information on the bill: California Gun Confiscation Bill Passes, Approves $24 Million To Expedite Illegal Gun Seizure

    As for the additional information on the raid: Five suspects arrested in police-FBI raids targeting West Oakland gang - San Jose Mercury News

    Now, I'm not saying what went down wasn't justified, I am merely worried that it's the start of "justifying" it against others when the time comes. Register this, register that, then mag size/AR limits, then the raids all thanks to the database.

    So as I read it they are confiscating weapons from drug dealers they are arresting. Did I miss something? Do we have any information to show that registration had anything to do with this at all? I mean, does anyone here believe that the drug dealers had legally registered their weapons and those records were how the cops found them?

    Confiscation is nothing new in CA. In fact the bill (SB-140) clearly outlines the rsponsibility of the AG to monitor the firearms owner list vs. the unlawful person list. Here is that plan in action:

    Tonight on AC360: California goes after illegal guns ? Anderson Cooper 360 - CNN.com Blogs

    Serving warrants on felons, fine. Confiscating ammo from a man with a temporary restraining order? Unless you're an actor, pothead, or illegal alien, get out of CA NOW !!!
