Where in the U.S. Constitution does it say that this is remotely legal?

The Fourth Amendment protects this specific act on the behalf of the government and in this case the police. (Source)

The individual’s weapon had shot no one before the police’s intrusion.

He had never shot anyone before.

He’s the crazy on here?

I don’t think so.



Other Amendments to the U.S. Constitution are covered in the source above as well.

We will have not heard the end of this as the United States is not ready to become nor will it ever be a Nazi driven country.

Anne Arundel County police chief Timothy Altomare suggests the incident proves the importance of red flag laws. (Seriously?)

Anne Arundel County police shot and killed 61-year-old Gary J. Willis while executing a firearm confiscation order under Maryland’s red flag law.

State law does not trump the United States Constitution.


Who determines who is a danger to whom?

In this case the victim clearly made a choice and he paid for it with his life.

No one will ever accuse him of not being true to his beliefs.

The Capital Gazette quoted Altomare saying the two officers who went to Willis’s home around 5 a.m.  “did the best they could with the situation they had.”

He added, “If you look at this morning’s outcome, it’s tough for us to say ‘Well, what did we prevent?’

Because we don’t know what we prevented or could’ve prevented. What would’ve happened if we didn’t go there at 5 a.m.?”

Police say that Willis initially had a gun in hand when he answered the 5 a.m. knock at his door.

He put the gun down when he realized officers were knocking, but he picked the gun back up when he ascertained the officers had come to take his firearms.

The officers tried to wrestle the gun away from Willis and it went off, striking no one.

But one of the two police officers fired a shot in response, killing Willis.

The details behind the issuance of a confiscation order against Willis have not been reported. All that is known is that a niece said one of her aunts requested the order.

WBALTV quoted Anne Arundel County police Sgt. Jacklyn Davis saying:

Not only are we going to a house to take somebody’s guns, we know they’re armed.

We know they have guns, but we have the court telling us this person is mentally unstable enough, that they can’t have guns, that’s the whole point of this order.

We don’t have discretion on that at all.

It’s an emergency order.

Maryland’s red flag law took effect October 1 and law enforcement predicts over 1,300 confiscation orders will be issued by the end of the year.

    Here’s the straight skinny on the Progressive Agenda. Its goal is to establish a Unitary State, in which the production, allocation, and subject of all goods, services, and leisure activities are determined by a centralized state. The Unitary State shall proscribe the criteria what is correct thoughts, actions, and religious beliefs.

    Those who disobey what the central state decides is permitted would be traitors to their comrades and fellows. As Jean-Jacques Rousseau (who invented all this nonsense back in the mid 18th century) explained, such traitors jeopardize the unity and happiness of society and must therefore be immediately put to death.

    This is, obviously, now the official philosophy and policy of the State of Maryland.

    As another (and better) philosopher, Johann von Goethe, remarked of the human condition, in life one must either be an anvil on which a hammer strikes – or you can be the hammer doing the striking (“Du muss Hammer oder Amboss sein.”)

    Which will YOU be?

      Well said but we must remember the French excel at making white surrender flags, cheese and overpriced wines and champaignes.

      I am definitely a HAMMER, THANK’S for the comments Jim


  2. “Where in the U.S. Constitution does it say that this is remotely legal?”…
    The government has NO RIGHT or authority to bust in on private property and confiscate anything, ever. And that’s why I don’t jump up and down screaming that firearms should be taken from the “mentally unstable.” It’s very dangerous leaving the decision of who’s “unstable” in the hands of the courts, or the government.

    Knowing he had weapons in the house, a better strategery might have been to wait until he left the premises and was some distance away. A traffic stop would have kept him busy enough for the home to have been entered and weapons neutralized. I’m not a cop and figured that out. WTF kinda klaw enforcement do they have there?
