Are they "confiscating" firearms or "securing unsecured" firearms? There's a different. Unsecured firearms are easy picking for looters. Now, the right thing to do is return the firearms.

I've wondered about a 'gun locker' business model for some time now, a small business where you rent locker space to someone that needs to store a weapon because they can't take it into a certain place, now you've got me wondering about a private armory for storage. There would need to be some detailed policies and procedures in place, and i'd consider 24hr armed security, but it's got me wondering ......

What can I say, I'm a business man at heart and just about everything makes me think of a way to make money .... except hoarding ammo and reselling it inflated prices. I think I'm too honest and fair to do that.

Confiscating is confiscating. Seizing a firearm is confiscation. The length of time the gun remains confiscated only tells us whether the confiscation was permanent or temporary. Once the authorities seize a firearm, even if it is temporary or labeled something else or claimed to have been done for the safety of others, it is still a form of confiscation. If the owner gets the firearm back, it doesn't change the fact the firearm was confiscated, it just means that it was a temporary confiscation.

Bad idea, the liberals will want to mandate that all of our firearms must be kept in the "armory" at all times because it is safer for the children.

I think I remember hearing that the British tried something like this with one of their colonies once and there was some sort of a revolution that didn't go too well for the British.

So it sounds like the police are admitting they are unable to prevent looting of homes while keeping the owners from being there to protect their own stuff. So to protect the investment the people have in their gun they are confiscated. Did they also confiscate TV's and other expensive property for the protection of homeowners? I guess you should not leave your guns where they can be seen in plain view through the front window. Surely they were not breaking in the door to safely secure guns stored in plain view in the bedroom closet.

Every once in a while, a thread asks the question, "where is your line in the sand?". While I can't absolutely say where that line is, I can say that (an attempt at) confiscation would be crossing it.
