Philly Sheriff Gets Guns Away From Alleged Abusers Fast

BY Herschel Smith
1 month ago

News from Philadelphia:

“Our concern is that in the immediate timeframe, that family is safe,” Williams said. “Imagine it’s cold out, there’s a family with children that’s just run out of the house with no coats or shoes on to get away from danger. We pick them up, we bring the whole family back to the house, we remove the bad guy and the guns and we make it safe.”

The Sheriff’s office is responsible for more than 1,000 firearms confiscated from accused batters due to Protection From Abuse orders. Their office’s Warrant Unit can execute Protection From Abuse orders signed by a judge 24/7, Williams said.

[ … ]

“We do this every day. We’re not making a judgment if this person is guilty or innocent, we’re enforcing the order,” said Sheriff’s Office deputy chief Paris Washington. “The courts determine whether they get them back, whether it’s vacated, or whether it lasts longer.”

Just obeying orders, like cops everywhere will do when pressed.  The operable phrase here is “alleged.”  It’s in the title of the article, I didn’t make it up.

So we don’t have to imagine anything.  All it takes is an accusation or allegation.  Presto.  God-given rights to self defense abused in a flash.  One phone call, one statement to a judge, one allegation to a social worker, true or not.  But no one is making a judgment, of course.

    This about says it all. All they need is an accusation. Due process is dead. Our constitution is rotting under it.

    Certainly he can remove guns from otherwise lawful persons, because taking them away from criminals is way to hard for this nazi brown shit.

    – Yes, well the constitution has been considered to be an irrelevant, silly and above all very inconvenient piece of old parchment that has been getting in the way of the soon to be officially ensconced supreme world government leadership for a long time now. Says who? Why, said George W. Bush, quite a number of years ago, as I remember it, just for one. When the New World Order officially arrives, why they just may have a special edition of Charmin printed up with the constitution alternating on every other sheet with Mr.Whipple’s image laughing on the next sheet.

    My takeaway from the article: “if your state has passed an ERPO law, depending on wording you’re either f*cked or well-and-truly f*cked. Just give in, roll over, and don’t make things worse for yourself because “law enforcement” is going to have its way with you regardless.”

    BS! My conclusion is different from that of the article. If your state passes an ERPO law, GTFO. Now. Whatever that requires. And take your life-saving tools with you.

    IOW: if you can’t Defy or Resist, then Evade. (Smuggling after the fact is optional.)

    ALCON,

    While the badged thugs are certainly the “ENFORCEMENT” part of the unconstitutional and illegal confiscation of one’s private property, do NOT dismiss the black-robed bastards from the chain of tyranny. For that matter in Pennsylvania, all judges, District Judges, Common Pleas Court, Commonwealth Superior Court, etc., are ELECTED ! In fact, one can see the political lawn signs popping up across the commonwealth as primary election time draws more near. “Tyrant (insert name here) For Judge”. Hell, in Pennsylvania the subjects get to elect the very same scoundrel who will bend both the law and you over ! The subjects of Pennsylvania bear nearly as much responsibility for their own demise as the “ENFORCEMENT” thugs and the judiciary tyrants giving the order to said thugs, to steel one’s private property

    Isn’t freedom grand ?

    ALCON,

    Regarding private property theft by .gov ENFORCEMENT types:

    “Kill All They Send” !

    Until the tyrants meet their demise enforcing illegal laws from unscrupulous, judicial tyrants, what is left of “freedom” will continue to flush down the drain of tyranny.

    “Kill All They Send”.
