Living in an Imperial World: Expect A Lot of These Situations


From WISH-TV in Indianapolis:

Guns & ammo confiscated from Indy home

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - ATF officers confiscate more than 100 weapons and 50,000 rounds of ammunition from a home on the city's northeast side.

Police were called out to a home in the 7000 block of Lantern Road Thursday night. The homeowner's 15-year-old daughter had called police to say her father was missing and she found a suicide note.

In the course of the investigation, police found the guns and ammunition inside the house. Officers were alarmed when they noticed a mortar round and an eight foot long Russian recoilless rifle. 24-Hour News 8 was told a judge issued a search warrant. That's when ATF agents were called in to catalogue and remove the weapons. The ATF calls the weapons cache a little bit unusual.

The ATF confiscated the weapons. They are now investigating to see if the homeowner had the proper permits and licenses to own all of the weapons.

Early Friday morning around 3 a.m. IMPD officers located the homeowner sleeping in his truck. He was parked outside a church about a block away. He has been taken in for detention and evaluation. Child services is taking care of his 15 year old daughter. As of right now he does not face any charges for owning those weapons.

Make sure you watch the video (not linkable). If it's the version I just heard over the air, it contained the usual scare language about "arms caches", "arsenal", and the obligatory "I'm surprised he had that many guns" neighbor interview.

They'll do it to you, too, just as soon as they have a chance. After all, given that the mission is to cow ordinary gunowners into submission, the G isn't going to be able to accomplish that simply by throwing Constitutional idealists like Wayne Fincher into prison.

Lesson: OPSEC and COMSEC begin at home.

More gunowners have been undone by "tips" to police from angry spouses/family members than any other single investigative tactic.

Consider what your exposure is on that front.

Act on your findings.

What do you do if your sister is a liberal anti-gunner married to a liberal anti-gun elected constable in the Great State of Texas and they know of your hunting activities, shooting activities, and extensive firearms collection?

I keep rather a few of them loaded and figure that some day my number is up. No choice on OPSEC for me.

Keep me in your prayers but I'm not registering a motherf*cking thing.

I already filled out enough 4473s in my life that with the jerking of FFLs left and right and the related confiscation of said 4473s I'm in their databases anyway...

Sever all ties and keep as far away from them as possible. Let them know nothing about what you have and make sure your children speak not of what you have. I've dealt with similar situations in the past and it always amazes me how fast fair weather friends will change sides for a little promise of favoritism.

This is not the first report I've read of police confiscating personal property because the owner owned or possessed “too many” firearms, and/or “too many” rounds of ammunition and/or something like an ?”eight foot long recoilless rifle”?

I don't presently own 100 firearms nor do I presently own several thousand rounds of ammunition. However, I do own several firearms and several rounds of ammo. I own several firearms for which I am unable to locate ammunition as well as several rounds of ammo that don’t fit the firearms I do own. I do own several thousand books and several thousand sports and non sports trading cards and several thousand comic books, and an old stamp collection along with well over a thousand action figures and toys. I own several pairs of socks and underwear as well as a couple of old WW-II pineapple grenades. I’ve accumulated a s#&tload of “stuff” over the last 65 years and do not intend to allow anyone (other than my wife) to determine that I own “too many” of anything.

Who in hell [other than a man's wife] has the authority and audacity to decide that a man owns “too many” anythings?
