another paranoid gun nutter who can't understand why his kid thinks about guns.
This has nothing to do with the topic at hand... Why would you stretch to insult a man that you dont even know. I own several handguns and rifles myself... Many are used for in my profession and I am also a semi-collector. Its funny how you talk about renouncing violence and anyone that partakes is a "nut" yet you name yourself "NinjaDude".
On the topic of the OP... This is insane. There is no legal standard that would allow law enforcement to take this type of action. All I can think of that would make this less insane is if we are not being told the full story.
