California’s New Gun Confiscation Squads

California’s New Gun Confiscation Squads

California’s police state is coming into full swing as it creates the Armed Prohibited Persons System (APPS).

The APPS is sweeping through cities collecting guns from citizens deemed by the state to be ‘prohibited person’.

The state can deem someone as being unfit to be a gun owner if they are declared to be ‘a danger to himself or others’.

While this might seem to some to be warranted, it actually allows for wide-open, arbitrary abuse of our Constitutional right to bear arms, which will certainly happen in liberal California.

These goon squads, traveling in SUVs and dressed in black tactical uniforms typical of the new militarized police forces of America, will lock down someone’s house declared ‘unfit’, until a warrant is secured.

The police state is staring us all right in the face.

The State of California has moved one step closer to the leading edge of the American police state through the newly created Armed Prohibited Persons System. (APPS) The purpose of the unit is strictly gun confiscation. Guns are already endangered in California. There is a cascade of legal maneuvers from liberal centers across the state directed at eroding the gun rights of their citizens, incrementally, in keeping with the Democrat progressive model.

Based upon gun registration lists, the APPS sweeps through California cities seizing firearms from those designated by the state to be “prohibited persons.” The jackboots travel in SUVs and are dressed in the increasingly familiar black tactical uniforms typical of the new militarized police forces of America.

One does not have to be a convicted criminal to be targeted by the APPS. All that is required is the designation by the state’s Welfare system that the gun owner is “a danger to himself or others.”

The threshold for being designated such a danger is an arbitrary and subjective determination by agencies of a government notorious for its liberal bias. As such, there is a strong likelihood of abuse. Even absent abuse, nowhere in the second amendment does it authorize such a usurpation of our God-given right.

The searches are warrantless unless the target is insistent, at which point the goons lock down the house until a warrant is obtained.

Funding for the 36 member APPS is obtained through firearms purchase fees, another infringement upon the 2nd amendment.

To date, California is unique in its employment of special jackbooted teams trampling upon the Constitution, but not alone in the idea of preemptive civilian disarmament.

In 1999, Connecticut enacted a similar measure permitting police to confiscate firearms from any individual believed to pose “a risk of imminent personal injury to himself or to other individuals.” It is surprisingly easy to take someone’s firearms away under this law.

Any state’s attorney or assistant state’s attorney, or any two police officers can swear out a complaint. With that complaint, a seizure can take place, and the citizen’s weapons withheld for up to a year.  No criminal charges or civil action need be taken against the owner. Under this provision, thousands of firearms have been seized.

Recently, in Massachusetts, police and prosecutors didn’t even bother pretending that they were enforcing a law. They conducted a pre-emptive disarmament of Gregory Girard, a resident of Manchester-by-the-Sea based solely upon a complaint by his estrange wife.

She called health and welfare officials and reported that Mr. Girard held what she considered to be strange political views. She revealed to authorities that Mr. Girard was convinced that martial law, and the associated gun confiscation was imminent.

In light of those strange and irrational views, predicting government raids to confiscate firearms, government agents raided his home and confiscated his firearms.

The liberal areas are usually the first locations for implementing the most outrageous changes in the American fabric as there is minimal resistance and more popular support for these misguided ideologies. Once a foundation is laid in one geographic area, the creep across the nation continues.

The creep across America has already begun. They’ve made their first moves; the attack on our rights as sovereigns is underway.

    “The state can deem someone as being unfit to be a gun owner if they are declared to be ‘a danger to himself or others’.”

    I have read the bill and law. According to what I am interpreting – these are corresponding to felons. I see no arbitrary statement or inference of the above stated “danger to himself or others”. Please clarify the positioning or is this more fear mongering?

    I firmly believe a felon should NOT be in possession of a firearm.

      Taking and throwing away your neighbors junk mail is a felony. A teen on a boarder state who sneaks his daddy’s car out at night when daddy is not looking and drives it 2 miles across state line has commited a felony. Dont be so eager to condemn a felon. Narrow it down to a violent felon, please.

      Actually, the bill says nothing about felons. It references “persons who have been, or will become, prohibited from possessing a firearm”, saying nothing about what might prohibit them from ownership. There is no requirement for due process in order to put someone on this list.

      Actually before this Bill felons did not have the right to carry. This bill allows them to confiscate weapons legally owned for up to a year based on anything from felony charges that were DISMISSED to a member of your family claiming you are not “in your normAl state of mind” to just recently purchasing a gun. This is not constitutional.

      But that’s just it. This new law does not require you to be a felon. If someone calls and states that you seem unstable,in a mentally questionable state, so on and so forth that the new task force can move in and seize your firearms.

    Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He continually kept talking about this. I most certainly will send this information to him.
    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY… PLEASE DON’T THINK FOR A MOMENT, THAT THIS COULDN’T HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO !!!!!!
    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control:
    From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    ———————–
    In 1911, Turkey established gun control:
    From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    ———————–
    Germany established gun control in 1938:
    From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
    ———————–
    China established gun control in 1935:
    From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    ———————–

    ———————–
    You won’t see this data on the US evening news or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without them, we are ‘subjects’. During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
    Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!
    If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.
    The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.
    The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.
    SWITZERLAND……… issues a gun to EVERY HOUSEHOLD! SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE. and……….
    SWITZERLAND has the LOWEST gun-related crime rate of any civilized country in the WORLD. IT’S A NO BRAINER! DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
    I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward this.
    If you’re not a believer, please ………..reconsider the facts.
    This is history; not what’s being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington.
    Guns are a lot like parachutes; if you need one and don’t have one, you will probably NEVER need one again!

    Whoever wrote this post isn’t from California, G*d didn’t invent gunshots people did, and so far last year bored states had some shoot twenty people at a place with disabled people.

    I think California is doing what’s best to protect its people….

    But that’s my opinion in a world full of them.

    Um… this was put in place in 2001. How exactly is this a ‘New’ thing by any definition? And are there ANY documented cases where any guns, legally & lawfully purchased, have been taken?
    Here’s the actual statute. Seems reasonable.
