Speaking with your attorney outside of public forums might be your best bet.

Depends on a whole host of potential factors, which might or might not have been present. As well, you're in NY, a place where the rabid "leaders" have a wild hair, right now, for all things "gun."

wouldnt they need a warrant to confiscate any firearm NOT involved in the accident? I can see them taking the firearm that discharged the round.. as it is technically discharge of a firearm in public and may or may not be a criminal offense in NY.. but to then take all of them in the house?

Thats like having ALL of your cars impounded because you got a a DUI while driving only ONE of them.

Get a lawyer...especially in the PRNY...

Did they say why they confiscated your property? Did they give you a receip?

They took all your gunss because they are going to prove you are an irresponsible and negligent gun owner that shouldn't be allowed to own any firearms,wait for the letter revoking your License to own guns

This sounds like a NY thing. I've read reports of people having NDs in free states, and usually the cops will write a report, but not press charges. I may have heard of a story or two where the cops took the weapon that was involved in the ND, but nothing else.

I'm going to buck the trend and say keep asking strangers for advice.

No wait... on second thought, I'd get a lawyer. Final answer.
