N.Y. DAD’S PISTOL LICENSE SUSPENDED OVER SOMETHING HIS 10-YEAR-OLD SON SAID — AND IT COULD BE 8 YEARS BEFORE HE GETS IT BACK

Later that day, Mayer got a call from school officials informing him that his 10-year-old son and two other students were talking about going to a boy’s house with a water gun, “paint gun” and a BB gun. There had reportedly been a school yard pushing incident the day before involving the boys, excluding Mayer’s son, and they were seemingly talking about getting even in some way.

Mayer told TheBlaze that a teacher overheard the students talking and immediately called police and filed a report. He said the teacher told police something to the effect of, there’s a “kid with a gun, ready to go.” Mayer maintains that no serious death threats were made by the students. The Hauppauge Public School District has not returned several messages left by TheBlaze, therefore, it is not clear what they are claiming was said.

School officials then “interrogated” the boys, Mayer explained. It was later determined that the 10-year-old boys did not have access to a BB gun, paintball gun or any actual firearms.

The school’s principal later informed the father that his son would be suspended for two days for the incident. But the ordeal was far from over.

Mayer said police officers were then deployed to his home where he was advised by officers that they might have to confiscate his firearms, which he says were all properly stored and secured. “I just couldn’t believe what was happening,” he told TheBlaze.

The following Monday, Mayer got a call from the Suffolk County Pistol Licensing Bureau. He was reportedly told that his license would be suspended and police would arrive at his house the next morning to retrieve his handguns. Acting quickly on the advice of his attorney, Mayer transferred all 15 of his handguns to his friend to prevent them from being confiscated. He also transferred his long arms to a local gun store out of fear that police would attempt to confiscate them as well.

However, that hardly fixed the problem.

Mayer’s pistol license has been suspended until further notice and he says officials have informed him that the suspension could last until his son moves out of his home. His son is only 10-years-old, meaning it could be eight years or longer before his license is restored.

Whole story...

The moral of the story:  Kids are longer allowed to talk about potentially violent things and the parents will be punished if their children dare to have an aggressive thought.

It makes it pretty hard to argue against the 'slippery slope', when crap like this happens.

Beyond ridiculous.  I would sue Sufolk county and retire early while my son went to a posh private school.  I would love to hear the law cited which they believe gives them the right to persecute this innocent American.  I'm sure no such law exists.

I also would have told the police if they enter my property without proper paper work they can expect the same treatement as any other ilegal trespasser.

My father owns alot more than 15 guns, but he is definetly not a nut.  He's a hobbyist and a collecter.

I know it was a while ago, but when you were a kid did you ever have a toy gun or pretend that a stick was a rifle while playing army? :innocent:

No, the problem is people need to chill out. My god, these idiots are completely freaking out about any mention of guns by kids in school. Its like mass hysteria has set in.

I did indeed. But as you say that was a while ago. For my children, that was allowed in a much smaller degree. And suspect it will become nearly non-existent in my grandchildren. Kids today do that in video games.

Granted, that's a reasonable statement.

We had a mass shooting here in Seattle a year ago in May, but this doesn't make me more or less afraid (worried) about being shot than I ever was, and don't think that any of the mass media induced hysteria being sponsored by our politicians is doing anything more than making most people upset with the level of disconect more and more people are viewing our government of being guilty of with thier consticuencies.

In MANY of the mass killings that have taken place with such alarming frequency, is that the shooters are on pysch medications! Yet we're not even investigating a link between them or doing research on them. Just blaming guns. It's the drugs! If I we're you, I'd be more scared of the c$%^ they put in our medications than being killed by a gun.
