How about two legal pro-gun organizations taking on the city of San Jose, its police department, and one of its officers over the seizure of firearms under the “state’s Welfare and Institutions code”?
In a report that will not be reported by any major news agency, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) along with the Calguns Foundation (CGF) filed a lawsuit that will be taken to a federal court. Lori Rodriguez had his firearms seized back in January 2013 after her husband was taken to the hospital and placed under a 72 hour psychiatric evaluation.
The guns were in a safe that was approved by the state of California, but were still confiscated. Notice there are no ties at all between the firearms from the wife, and the husband and his illness. No gun was used, seized, or seen on or near her husband, Edward, during his hospital visit.
“The City of San Jose or any other jurisdiction simply cannot be allowed to seize someone’s legally-owned property because of the actions of a spouse or some other third party,” SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb observed. “We have looked at the state code and have serious concerns about the policies and procedures in San Jose. Lori Rodriguez should get her firearms returned.”
The end result of the proposed suit would be for the immediate release of the weapons to Lori and also to pay for damages and court costs. That sounds almost reasonable considering all that she has gone through with this ILLEGAL seizure.
“The city attorney acknowledged that Lori could go out and buy more firearms because she is not prohibited from doing so,” Gottlieb noted. “We think she should get her own firearms returned, and that this continued deprivation of her property needs to stop immediately.”
“We’ll continue going to court so long as local governments ignore the fact that citizens have civil rights protected by the Second Amendment,” Gottlieb promised. “We’re going to win firearms freedoms, one lawsuit at time.”
I really like this organization in spite of the fact that we know next to nothing about them. They stand for the rights of the individual for the 2nd Amendment and that is what really matters nowadays. Let’s spread the word about this outrage, and bring true outrage for this harassment!
Something truly terrifying is coming our way, and it will hit homeland before the 1st of January 2017. Click here to see how to survive after the fall… (sponsored)
