Dangerous or sane, owners of seized guns get day in court

Occasionally over the course of the past year or so, odd hearings pop up on the Allen County Superior Court docket.

Identified sometimes with a personís name and always with a miscellaneous case number, the cases put a citizen and a prosecutor before a judge, usually Allen Superior Court Judge Fran Gull, to discuss one thing: a firearm.

To keep guns out of the hands of potentially dangerous individuals, Fort Wayne police have been taking advantage of a little-used state law that allows for the seizure of guns, without a warrant, from people who are perceived to be a danger to themselves or to others.

The law, adopted in 2009 and tweaked in 2014, provides a court hearing for those who have lost their firearms in this way to make a pitch to get their guns back.

1. So what is wrong with that?

 

Due process by a court after a seizure of guns, without a warrant. Are you saying there should be no legal recourse in case of abuse of the system by the police? We all know the police never abuse the system.

So, what are your thoughts, I would hope you would be for this but I bet you will not bother to discuss this Google dump of the day post without any comment.

6. "Due Process" Another NRA Talking Point?

 

Warrant free seizure of private property based only on a cop's "perception" or an anonymous report?

No chance for that to ever be abused.
