Buffalo Police Department Confiscates Guns From Widows

BUFFALO, NY – Buffalo Police say they’re determined to get more guns off the streets and now they’re checking to see whether pistol permit holders have passed away and what happened to their gun or guns.

During a press conference last week regarding weapons brought in illegally from Pennsylvania, police officials told reporters their biggest problem with weapons in crimes seems to involve guns that are stolen in burglaries from homes.

They feel that, in some cases, families are holding on to weapons even after the person who bought them originally has died.

So now they’re actually looking for those situations.

“We recently started a program where we’re cross referencing all the pistol permit holders with the death records, and we’re sending people out to collect the guns whenever possible so that they don’t end up in the wrong hands,” said Police Commissioner Daniel Derrenda.” Because at times they lay out there and the family is not aware of them and they end up just out on the street.”

Some police agencies give families of the deceased permit holder 15 days to sell or transfer a weapon or weapons held with the permit to another permit holder or a dealer.

Forget passing down heirlooms to family members, or bequeathing cherished things to those you love.  The state has decided to send the Gestapo to collect your stuff.  Instead of calling it “stealing private property,” which would land you or me in prison, they do it all under the rubric of protecting the safety of the public.  That’s always the stated reason, no?

The Bible has strong words for those who would mistreat and take advantage of widows and orphans.  Men like this are the lowest of the low, and God will judge them for their actions.  Those men have no right to weeping and gnashing of teeth on judgment day – they have been warned concerning their sin.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Weapons permits were created for two reasons.
    1) A tax.
    2) For “voluntary” registration.
    When the SHTF they’ll know who to go to first.

    there is no depth to which these scumsucking filth will not go. But you know what they say about payback. Judgment Day comes to us all, but for some it will be much sooner than they think.

    The GUN OWNERS were but with the school shooting that happened just before the election (and the gun grabbers saying less than 2 hours AFTER the shooting that their bill would have stopped it, which it would not have), the sheeple in the Seattle area voted it into law.

    I would REALLY like to hear Police Commissioner Derrenda’s definition of what constitutes “the wrong hands”. I’d be even MORE interested to learn what he considers to be the “right” hands. Not sure he & I would be very much in agreement. Guess that’s another reason you could not PAY me to live in NY state.

    Oh, look: A monopoly of violence! Just like the kind all the hive insect citizen disarmament cultists demand! http://waronguns.blogspot.com/2014/11/why-didnt-victims-just-vote-to-disarm.html

    In New York it is now possible for a handgun to be listed on the permits of two owners, such as my sister and my father, at the same time. I’ll bet the authorities don’t advertise that much.

    Just the fact that you must be ‘permitted by the government’ to own a handgun raises my blood pressure.
    And as I write this, I’m watching a story on TV about Stanislaus County Sheriffs Department (CA) ‘missing’ 2 ARs. The Sheriff says they could be stolen, in the hands of retired personnel or it could be a paperwork error.

    Show of hands: Keeping in mind that CA has full “assault weapon” registration, how many people believe the SCSD would be showing this level of restraint if two “civilian” AR-15s had gone “missing”? How about the CA DOJ?

    Anyone? Bueller?

  12. On November 11, 2014 at 8:48 am, TEEBONICUS said:

    Again, requiring a permit to merely own a gun is facially unconstitutional.

    Of course we dare not consider the constitutional aspects of this because then we would find tyrants. Suitable for hanging. Just doing their jobs, according to their leaders, politicians and the judges they’ve appointed to rubber stamp every little and big, shitty thing the say and do.

    When do we realize that these people are abusing scum that deserve no quarter?

    New York, the 2nd Communist state after Kalifornia. with Connecticut being the 3rd. Its a wonder more people don’t leave these Marxist strongholds for free states where the Constitution is not infringed.

  16. On November 10, 2014 at 1:16 pm, Archer said:

    Not really. Most NY and CA “conservatives” are still left-of-center – ideologically more closely resembling most of Free America’s “liberals” – and they’ll vote to make Constitutionally-pure states more like the collectivist hell-holes they just left.

    And then they’ll marvel at how the country is falling apart wherever they go, never realizing that they are part of the problem.

    Government will always try to regulate, censor, outlaw, and confiscate, speech, ideas, and objects, that could aid the citizenry in a rebellion. What happened to the supporters of big government on November 4th will only reinforce their belief in total government control.

    I have an idea for the Buffalo NKVD. Soon after the passing of a family member that was using scripted narcotics to ease their suffering, have the narcotics squad smash down the front door and gather in all persons within the dwelling.
    Extra points if enough “contraband” is present to charge the occupants with dealing, then the local CHEKA can seize all their assets.

    I left buffalo and moved west mainly because of leftist government controls and never looked back.

    It’s clearly un Constitutional, and it’s theft. This is where we are today. Ruled by criminal oligarchs.

    Nobody should have to have a permit to posess a gun.

    Requiring a permit to own a gun and to carry it on private property is unconstitutional. The government can argue that the regulation of carrying in public is a compelling government interest (apparently successfully, given that it seems to be settled law in most states), but “public safety” in a private dwelling is a non sequitur, and it is a bridge too far.
