Michigan Tells Marine He Has to Give Up His 2nd Amendment Rights to Raise His Grandson!

0

The Constitution has run amuck in Michigan as a judge literally denies a man his 2nd Amendment rights if he wants to raise his grandson.

The judge literally stated, “We know we are violating numerous Constitutional rights here, but if you do not comply, we will remove the boy from your home.”

The caseworkers also told him: “if you want to care for your grandson you will have to give up some of your Constitutional rights.”

Michigan Tells Marine He Has to Give Up His 2nd Amendment Rights to Raise His Grandson.

William, a retired disabled Marine, and his wife, Jill, were asked by the State of Michigan to be foster parents to their grandchild. When they went to pick up the boy, they were asked to provide their Concealed Pistol License, and turn in all serial numbers for his firearms, including rifles and shotguns.

The Johnsons have filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) violated the gun rights of foster parents. (Facebook page. Be sure to visit!)

They are specifically suing Nick Lyon, in his official capacity as Director of  the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

From the complaint filed with the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan.

The Johnsons were asked by the State of Michigan to be foster parents to their grandchild. When Johnson and Jill and Mason went to pick up Johnson’s grandson at the MDHHS, Johnson was searched. Even though Johnson was not carrying a firearm, the MDHHS officials still demanded to see Johnson’s Concealed
Pistol License.

The caseworkers stated that Mr. Johnson, a 100% disabled veteran, was going to have to give them the serial numbers for all of his guns, including shotguns and rifles. When Johnson questioned the caseworkers about this, they told
him: “if you want to care for your grandson you will have to give up some of your Constitutional rights.” They then told the Johnsons that “there would not be a power struggle, that they would just take his grandson and place him in a foster
home.” The MDHHS later said they had “big concerns” over Johnson exercising his Second Amendment rights and carrying a firearm. There is nothing in Johnson’s history that would warrant such concerns.

Two weeks after that, in Gogebic County Court to have the Johnsons’ grandson formally placed with them, the judge in passing told the Johnsons they would have to comply with the firearms restrictions if they wanted to care for their grandson. The judge said during the hearing: “We know we are violating numerous Constitutional rights here, but if you do not comply, we will remove the boy from your home.”

This is pure insanity! The judge needs to be ousted! I repeat:

The judge literally stated, “We know we are violating numerous Constitutional rights here, but if you do not comply, we will remove the boy from your home.”

He has admitted to violating his oath of office!

Second Amendment Foundation founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb said the statements from the caseworker and judge “are simply outrageous.”

“This amounts to coercion, with a child as their bartering chip,” he said. “I cannot recall ever hearing anything so offensive and egregious, and we’ve handled cases like this in the past. Blatantly telling someone they must give up their civil rights in order to care for their own grandchild is simply beyond the pale.”

When those who make an oath to defend the Constitution decide to throw it in file 13, we are lost.
