Several reports of gun confiscations are starting to appear in New York State after a man said he had all of his firearms seized by police over a 15 year old misdemeanor charge.
On July 8, 2014 a man in Nassau County said that he received a visit from the New York State Police saying that they wanted to inspect the serial number of a semi-automatic rifle that he recently purchased.
He took the officers to his gun safe to show them the serial number when one of the officers took all of his guns (CX4 9mm, Remington 70 SPS, and Remington 870 shotgun) out of the safe. They told him that he had a misdemeanor possession charge from 15 years ago and that all of his guns would be taken.

All of the guns were bought legally, one at a Dicks Sporting Goods and the other 2 at a local outdoors-men store. Background checks were also done at the time of purchase.
The state troopers gave the man a New York State police receipt and a certificate of relief paper. They told him if he could get a judge to sign the relief paper he would get his guns back.
The man has since hired a lawyer but has not yet received his legally owned guns back.
