Each and every time patriots dare imply that the government registers guns for future confiscation, they are derided as right-wing, extremist wackos.

Don’t you believe it! In New York state, with the passage of the infringing Safe Act, guns were unlawfully seized from David Lewis, 35, who was wrongfully identified as violating the mental health provision of said act.

As written in Buffalo.ynn.com news:

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Thursday, a state Supreme Court Judge ruled guns seized from David Lewis, 35, must be returned to him after he was incorrectly identified as violating the mental health provision of the SAFE Act.

“We know that from the health care agency to the State Police, there was some kind of breach,” said Lewis’ attorney, Jim Tresmond.
Tresmond says his client was ordered to turn in his weapons last week because he was once on anti-anxiety medication, which is a violation of the SAFE Act. Wednesday, State Police informed the Erie County Clerk’s Office that it made a mistake when it said Lewis was in violation of the state’s new gun law.

But Tresmond says it was no mistake.

“When they targeted David, they not only targeted him by name, they also targeted him by his pistol permit, so they identified him as David Lewis with this particular pistol permit number on the letter that they sent to him,” said Tresmond.

This is just the first gun grab, and it is frightening beyond belief. Anyone who remembers the timeline of WWII and the Nazi regime will recognize the ominous consequences of such laws. New York is now the pioneer state re the  match-up of private health records with gun permits to confiscate firearms.

Seen first at Doug Ross Journal (h/t Bob Botherton):

Amazing, isn’t it? The Aurora, Colorado movie shooter was on all sorts of prescription medications, warned his psychiatrist of violent fantasies and even left her a notebook. That book remains sealed. The defense has argued, successfully thus far, that it is not evidence because it “is part of doctor-patient privileged communication”.

Yet, according to New York’s Tresmond law firm, some of that state’s law enforcement agencies are dipping into private medical records for the purposes of gun confiscation:

John Doe, an upstanding professional with no outstanding criminal convictions and no history of violent action received a letter from the Pistol Permit Department informing him that his license was immediately revoked upon information that he was seeing a therapist for anxiety and had been prescribed an anxiety drug.

He was never suicidal, never violent, and has no criminal history. The New York State Department of Health is apparently conducting a search of medical records to determine who is being treated for anxiety drugs and using this as a basis for handgun license revocation.

I would like to add that the police departments are demanding that whomever turns in a pistol also turn in accessories for that pistol such as magazines, despite the fact that these magazines are not firearms themselves and anyone can purpose a magazine without a pistol license.

Even more troubling was the fact that the police officer taking custody of the pistols cheerily informed the client that “the department” would be destroying his pistols if they were not retrieved within one year. When she was questioned as to what he should do should he choose to sell the pistols out of state, given that he has a property right to the monetary value of the gun, she became confused, her expressions changed to perplexed, and she made a referral to another officer.

Jazz Shaw of Hot Air contemplates how this relates to universal background checks:

This new universal background check bill is the hot ticket in DC right now. You can read the full text of it here, which thus far contains nothing about expanding how one qualifies as “mentally ill” but there are multiple amendments to come, so we don’t even know what will be in the final version. A repeating theme is that it will have to “do something” about keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. But how is that to be accomplished? Will it only affect those who have been adjudicated in court to be proven, dangerous, unstable individuals and who have had the opportunity to object to their classification? Or will it be something that slides closer to what we now have in New York?

In this same vein, the Missouri Department of Revenue, which is the issuer of concealed carry permits in the state, may have transmitted private information concerning a CC permit holder to DHS.

Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder held a press conference to announce his involvement in an attempt to stop the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) from transmitting this private data to the Federal Government. The data transmission was discovered after a Missouri Resident Eric Griffin’s Concealed Carry permit was denied when he refused to let the DOR scan and transmit his private data to the Feds.

According to LT. Gov. Kinder, this information is not only being turned over to the fed, but also to a private agency in another state. Both actions are specifically prohibited by State Law, and seem like yet another attack on law abiding gun owners.

Kinder, and the Stoddard County Prosecutors, filed legal actions against the Missouri Department of Revenue; late today that action resulted in a temporary restraining order being issued that will force the DOR to stop transmitting this private information to the Feds.

Patriots must be aware and must resist the registration of guns in America. With each passing day another story comes to light, in spite the Main Stream Media’s side-steps, of government usurpation of individual liberty to keep and bear arms. Our forebears shed blood for those rights. Our vets and troops have given the last full measure of devotion for those rights.

This present generation of America and liberty-loving patriots must never relinquish our Constitutionally guaranteed rights, all of which are protected by that which many consider preeminent–the Second Amendment.

      Lib’s say we have a right to bare arms (Yes – you may roll up your sleeves). Conservatives say we have the right to bear arms. (Not to be confused with black or brown bears…) …Posted since the author says she is a grammar Nazi. (I am just trying to help …and have a little fun.)!!

    A review of murders mental status’ reveals that those who become unstable are known to those who have contact with them as acting strange if not bizarre but those same people do not act, do not alert anyone who might act and in fact are the real problem. Nobody wants to rat out a friend. That idea needs to be changed to nobody wants their friend to commit murder.

    Interestingly congress doesn’t see the public as their friend. Loyalty has no bearing on their reasoning at all.

    • tionico

      even those who ARE aware of such mental issues and DO report to the appropriate people to DO something get ignored. James Holmes’ psychiatrist (Aurora Cinemark) had reported his homicidal behaviour and statements a month before his rampage, and to the proper authorities. They did… nothing but wait until it happened, then showed up for the cleanup and chalklines. The laws, and the means to implement them, ARE in place.. but are ignored. Background checks? Hah….. some 14,000 illegal attempts last year by felons debarred the use of arms were refused…. and only a small handful prosecuted. It is a FEDERAL FELONY to lie on the 4473 form for the BGC…. out of that 14K liars, I’m certain at least a few thousand wilfully did so, and that such wilful violation of the law could easily be prosecuted. Felons in possession? Sure, its another felony… but how often is THIS violation prosecuted fully? Most often it is used as more weight on the sword hanging over the perp’s head, then waived in the plea bargaining stages of what passes for “justice” these days. NO!!! Prosecute EVERY ONE of those violations. ONLY when the risk of getting caught with a gun means ten years in the slammer, no matter what else they get, will such people begin to think it not a good idea.

      • apen

        Indeed there are sheriffs who have the authority to act but don’t. They should be removed by their constituents ASAP.

        On the idea that a failed background check is a crime, WRONG ! I found out the ruse here is that most people who fail don’t know why. You see, NICS is not a valid database of persons who have lost a right to keep arms. It is a database of reasons for you to prove to the feds that their records are incomplete. The few that get prosecuted are those who try to buy a gun while an order of protection is in place. The rest are simply notices that you must do something like cause a court to produce records to the feds. Many “felons” were never adjudicated a permanent loss of rights however the feds do not respect state court rulings anyways. You might guess there are reasons for these rulings as not everything in this country is done by police to protect and the same goes for the feds. This is the very reason that the second amendment should not be INFRINGED. Your right to arms is locally controlled not state controlled or federally. If the database of felons was properly assembled by each state from records that were complete and accurate and each state were required to protect it’s citizens from BAD records and BAD courts from other states then I’d say a denial is a denial. The way the system is set up now it’s BS.

    This is another reason why the Second Amendment will ultimately not protect us. Think about it: Already, the amendment with the wording “shalt not be infringed” is the most infringed, licensed, and limited amendment of the twenty seven, and the day is probably coming when the Second Amendment will be repealed. This is the inherent nature and danger of optional constitutional rights versus non-optional Biblical responsibiities, such as found in 1 Timothy 5:

    ‘But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house [including spiritual and physical protection], he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)

      even if they manage to ilegally repeal the Second Ammendment, our right to arms will remain, as it is God given and CANNOT be taken away by another. These gun grabbers seem to forget this. That collection of words on an old piece of paper is not the source of our right to defend ourselves, our lives, our liberties. The God who created us is the source of that right. Even Cain, the first murderer, was not denied self-defense. Rocks (or clubs, or whatever he used) were not banned, regulated, licensed, taxed, registered, permitted…… HE was banished, yet the command was given to not kill him, to let him live with his shame as an example. His right to life, and the means to defend that, was kept…. though later, that was reversed…. whoever by his hand takes the life of another, by the hand of man shall HE die. We don’t do that anymore… which is a good bit of the reason we have this “war on guns” now. If that penalty were restored to its rightful use, and murderers quickly but fairly tried and, if convicted on the testimony of two or more witnesses, they should be executed forthwith. No more of this coddling, dragging things out for so many decades no one can remember what happened any longer….. it is as anti-biblical as removing our God-given right to self-defense, and defense against a tyrannical enslaving government.

      • http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/ Ted R. Weiland

        Thanks for responding Tionico. Please consider that the Bible knows nothing of optional rights. On the other hand, it’s replete with non-optional responsibilities. Rights are a bill of goods that helped to sell us down the river. See blog article “Rights, Rights, Everyone Wants Their Rights.” Click on my name, then our website.

    Well, so much for the hippa law. You know, the one that does not allow even our spouses to have access to our medical records unless we specify they can have it. It’s pretty bad when the feds, (to whom we are NOT married), can have unlimited access to our medical records and the very person we ARE married to cannot access the information without our written permission.
    What a horrible joke.

    I will be giving money ALL OVER THE COUNTRY whenever I can to oust any politician who votes for this bill and has a challenger who is a solid 2nd ammendment supporter. And we also need to give to the NRA so they can advertise against the politicians who don’t stand for our freedoms!

    Of the people by the people and for the people, if you forget why we have a second amendment you need to read only so far as the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence where it explains what circumstances are necessary to defend a free people from an oppressive government.

  • Ron Beal

    Government is not a ‘friend’ of anyone. When ‘they’ speak in the collective, they think they have the power, not the people. Having said that, ‘they’ are cowards and rule by force and intimidation, like a bully in grammar or high school. Once they are knocked on their ass, they become a little more humble. The ‘government’ will have to be dealt a severe blow to wake them up. Since ‘they’ have considerable force, and many allies, the wake-up call will have to be extreme, in the same discipline, i.e., force/violence. A one-million man, armed force marching on Washington, DC would get their attention. Unfortunately, if it was announced, each car/truck would have to gun their way to DC. The government would use every possible defence to prevent a massing. Every overpass, National Guard and Armed Forces would attempt to block and/or destroy the onslaught of the people. BUT, that is what ‘they’ need. A million armed people surrounding the Black House would cause a change of mind. Can you ‘see’ all auto surrounding the BH in flames simultaneously? “Wake up B, there is someone outside!”

    If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. Winston Churchill
