when will they allow family members to petition that they take away your tv or your cigs or your junk food saying they are causing damage to the family and they fear for their lives?/sarc

Bad analogy ..guns..can kill several people at a time if used for mass shooting, a cigarette, TV, and donut cannot..


Use it next time someone runs into a crowd and begins to mass feed people with junk food...or there is a someone in a mall forcing people to smoke..or running into a school and making everyone watch TV.

Yes they are different but where will this stop if this power is given to police. They can already take your money because it is guilty of having to much and you must be a drug dealer.

Abuse victim buys a gun to protect herself from abusive ex, not-quite-ex-husband gives some reason why he thinks she doesn't need a gun, he kills her the next day.

Woman doesn't want her ex to have the kids, she knows he's a gun owner. She tells the cops "I think he's dangerous", they take his gun because most judges are going to rubber stamp this stuff in CA and we all know it, now there's a record of him having his gun taken away for "being unbalanced". Suddenly, she wins the custody battle.

Vegetarian doesn't like that his son/father/sister is a hunter. He reports this person. Suddenly, that gun is taken away.

Methhead young man wants to rob his single mother sister or grandma, but he knows she has a gun. He tells the police that she's unbalanced. Suddenly, they're sitting ducks.

I disagree as a licensed owner, concealed carrier. Youre speaking about a LAW. I assure you that in most cases...if you have someone who needed their weapons removed for some good reason...you can. And they wont be giving a damn about whether you have any legal right ot do it. Theyll be ticked either way.



Additionally, I didnt imply with the Police's permission...I meant for your personal security while removing them. Even if you get a legal law to allow you to do that...obviously something perhaps mental or safety-legal whatever...is going on...and it'll be in everyone's best interest to have them there to help the family facilitate the removal.



When someones going off...legal doesnt mater. Not at the time. To get them BACK? Yes. Of course.





To a point, I agree (your first sentence describes me, as well...except we don't need a license to own firearms in KY). But in the grand scheme of things, legality does matter when confiscations happen. Family member or not, police-escorted (which is passive approval by the police) or not, theft is theft. Those items are the owner's and the owner's only--just because someone is family doesn't mean that taking them isn't illegal. Same with LEOs.

In fact, if you live in Indiana, you can use deadly force against LEOs if they enter your property illegally. It was an amendment to their existing castle law, expanding it to include "public servants" specifically.

Now, I'm not in the very least advocating shooting a family member or LEO who enters your house, but I am saying be aware of your 4th Amendment rights, that's all.

(I'm also not saying I wouldn't take firearms away from someone I knew to be unstable, I'm just speaking about legalities)
