State of New York reportedly confiscating firearms from citizens

A semiautomatic rifleThe Examiner – by RYAN KELLER

The state of New York is allegedly confiscating firearms from people for mental health purposes, reported on Monday.

According to Ammoland, the state is sending letters to users of SSRI antidepressants and who have experience with mental health demanding that the recipient surrender their handguns and identification that allows them to legally own firearms in the state, even if the person has no known criminal record or has not expressed any threat to commit violence.  

“Those folks having their weapons and FID (firearm ID) cards confiscated have been discovered to have been prescribed multiple different types of psychotropic drugs, such as those for Depression or Anxiety. These are known as SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) class drugs and have the potential to cause serious and adverse side effects,” Ammoland reports.

The writer at Ammoland claims to have spoken with an attorney in New York, James Tresmond, who confirms that firearms are being confiscated in Erie County.

“It seems these supposedly confidential records are then compared against a list of known NY pistol license holders and letters are sent out demanding their Pistol Owner ID Cards be surrendered, as well as any firearms and accessories,” said Tresmond.

The state of New York has instituted some of the strictest gun control in the country following the Sandy Hook shooting in December. The state has implemented a law called the Secure Ammunition and Firearms (SAFE) Act, which outlaws magazines that hold more than seven rounds, requires gun owners to re-register their information every five years and requires semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines be registered with the state police, among other things.

Last month, Benjamin Wassell of Silver Creek was arrested for allegedly trying to sell firearms that were made illegal by the SAFE Act, including two semiautomatic rifles and more than 300 rounds of ammunition, according to the Associated Press. Wassell was alleged to have tried to sell the weapons to an undercover police officer.

    What happened to HIPPA and how can the NY state cops access the medical records of eveyone in that state?

  3. Johnd34 says:

    Many of us are not complying in fact are changing our perspective about guns period. In fact getting the same shit Eric Holder is giving to the drug cartel.

    As I said before, Buffalo, NY, AKA Erie County is always the test case for everything in NY because the people in Buffalo, although they have gun owners, also have many more stupid people and socialists who will go along with this crap. I just hope they wake up. Buffalo, NY is my hometown, so I would know. That’s why I left there. It’s a dead town with stupid people. Unfortunately, some of my family still live there.

    So far I’m glad to be in Texas. At least most of them here won’t give them up without a fight.

    What about all the people who were, and are, prescribed those Same drugs as an “aide to stop smoking”? Even without “depression”, this applies to them also.

    SUE — SUE the Doctors for prescribing medicine that DOES NOT CURE, SUE the FDA/Government for APPROVING unsafe drugs.

    WARN EVERYONE: Your Doctor is now an “AGENT of the STATE”. ANYTHING you tell your Doctor CAN and WILL be used against you.

    • diggerdan says:

      The courts always have used medical records for or against you. Think about it.

      • Smilardog says:

        I wouldn’t say all doctors because we have two of them, and a nurse, and a dentist as part of our group. So, let not group them all into the same traitor group, because there is a resistence to the regime in every class of people.
