Florida Resident Involuntary Committed and Guns Confiscated Under New Gun Control Laws

Have Florida students unarmed their first NRA member and relegated him against his will to an insane asylum, or is this a case of closing the barn door after Nikolas Cruz got out?

The details are sketchy, but the first Florida resident has been involuntarily committed and his guns seized under the new gun control law implemented by Governor Rick Scott. A 56 year-old Lighthouse Point, Florida resident had his “four firearms and 267 rounds of ammunition” seized and he was “taken to a hospital for involuntary psychiatric treatment,” under Gov. Rick Scott’s new gun control laws in the wake of the Parkland, Florida massacre.

Police were called after the man turned off the main electrical breakers to the condo building in Lighthouse Point, court records show. The South Florida Sun Sentinel is not identifying the man because of his medical condition. The man told officers he “was being targeted and burglarized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a neighbor who lives in [his] building,” the judge wrote in his order.

“[He] could not describe the neighbor but stated that the neighbor [can] ‘shape shift, he can change heights and I’m not sure where he comes from’ and ‘to be honest, he looks like Osama Bin Laden.’” He also told officers that he had to turn off the electrical breakers because “they are electrocuting me through my legs.”

Does sound crazy, but the big question is: Who is going to determine who is crazy and who isn’t moving forward? I can tell you right now they are compiling a list as quickly as they can and doing it like foxes in the night. I’ll give you just one example:

I went in to get my heel looked at the other day because of a small cut that had become infected and the examining doctor asked me if I had become depressed to the point of having to see a therapist..

“Over my heel?” I said. “…. No, not necessarily, I mean, do you have anxiety or do you get down ever?”

I paused for a moment, not wanting to offend her and asked very politely; “Were you under the impression I was here for anything other than to get a dressing for my foot?” At which point she began scribbling. Scribbling what, I wondered? The patient became impatient? The patient was irritable, uncooperative? Paranoid? Full of anxiety? Who knows?

All I know is the puzzle got solved a couple minutes later after she (very expertly) wrapped my foot and forced a tetanus shot on me: I was handed this questionnaire – you can see my response to the key question below…

Notice the additional inquiries to my mental state and potential reasons to investigate people living in my home? Then I remembered her asking me directly if I lived alone. Why the hell does that matter?

These fascists want to take your guns away and the minute they think they have a threshold to get a chance to do it – they’ll send out the jackboots and begin interacting with you. And the minute you begin arguing with them – they’ll have their reason: You’re not stable and this form you filled out above is their probable cause.

Think I’m paranoid?

Look at this and really ponder five years from now if we head directly on the path we’re headed and Chuck Schumer takes over later this year.

SOME BACKGROUND

The seized firearms were listed as “a Ruger LCP .380 pistol, an M2 Mauser .45 pistol, a Charter Arms .357 mag snub nose revolver and a Mossberg 500 12-gauge shotgun.” Under this law, the police had the man committed and confiscated his four guns and ammo.

On March 9, Gov. Scott signed a $400 million gun bill that includes orders which allows a family member or law enforcement to petition a judge to order the seizure of an individual’s firearms. The man was also taken to a hospital for involuntary psychiatric treatment under the state’s Baker Act.

When asked about the confiscatory order that resulted in the seizure of the Lighthouse Point resident’s firearms, Mayor Glenn Troast said, “This is not about the Second Amendment and it’s not about the NRA. The bill also put waiting periods in place for long gun purchases, raised the minimum purchase age for long gun purchases (from 18 to 21) and banned bump stocks.

His detractors say this is entirely about the Second Amendment. It’s also about redefining who an adult is and who can have someone involuntarily committed to psychiatric care. The National Rifle Association immediately filed a lawsuit in federal court in Tallahassee challenging some aspects of the law, including the legality of banning gun sales to people under the age of 21.

Speaking of young folks, here’s some Florida kids at an anti-gun rally organized by some adults.

Raise your hands if you’re in favor of taking away people’s guns….

Officers said they saw weapons in his home after they were called to check on his welfare. They also found evidence he had “a voluminous amount of notes containing numerous references to former President Barack Obama, that he was killed in the 1980s but came back and now murders children to place their spirits into [the man’s] head, is a member of [al-Qaida], and is [the man’s] enemy,” the judge wrote in his order. The man was involuntarily committed for treatment in a separate proceeding and it is not yet known when he would be eligible for release, records show.

Hey idiot mittens: Do you really need a new law to pick up this guy? How about a little common sense down there in Florida? Of course I know you don’t have any after listening to that Coward County Sheriff for twenty seconds.

Those pussies couldn’t organize a two-car funeral and should all be put in prison for accessory to mass-murder and everyone knows it. Why didn’t they pick up Nikolas Cruz? Oh yeah…. liberals.

“I think this is what the general public has been looking for — for law enforcement to be able to intervene in these kinds of situations — for a long time,” Lighthouse Point Police Chief Ross Licata said. However, what is at issue is the man’s constitutional rights on numerous levels here. “We’re not in the business of going out and violating people’s Second Amendment rights,” Licata said. “In this particular case, we identified a significant public safety risk to the person who owned the firearms and others.” But what is at issue here is due process which seems to have been waived to a degree. It should come first before confiscation of guns and commitment, not last.

Raise your hand if you’re in favor of taking away people’s guns…. frikin’ Nazi.

Share this if you give a damn. If not, I’ll see you in the hospital – or the gulag. Shut up.
