California, When Gun Confiscation Starts, Don’t Let Them In The Door

Jerry BrownFreedom Outpost – by Dean Garrison

California inched closer to passing a gun confiscation bill last week. The bill returns to the Senate for some “non-controversial” amendments and then goes to the desk of Governor Brown. What the people of California need to realize is that this is all a formality. The gun confiscation is already happening and will continue. This legislation would only provide more money to expedite the process. 

With all of the major news stories this legislation has been largely unnoticed in the media. What I want all of our readers to understand is that what is happening in California, and will continue to happen, is only happening because people do not know and understand their rights.  

The thing that you must understand is that this bill deals with a type of gun confiscation that happens without warrants. Let me quote a Huffington Post article which appeared late last week:

“California is the only U.S. state where law enforcement officials confiscate guns from the homes of individuals not legally permitted to own them. Because gun-confiscating agents do not obtain search warrants, their job involves convincing people to let them into their homes and hand over their guns. If an individual does turn over a gun, he or she can be arrested on suspicion of illegally owning a firearm.”

Really? Is this one of the craziest things you have ever heard in your life? This paragraph shocked me.

Your 4th Amendment rights protect you from unreasonable search and seizure. Here is the text of the 4th Amendment:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

We don’t even have to talk about the 2nd Amendment and “shall not be infringed” to understand that the 4th Amendment is also in play here. If they don’t produce a warrant, you are not required to let them in the door. Period.

If you do decide to let them in, and you do decide to hand over a gun to them then you may be giving up your own protection under the 5th amendment:

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

I have added emphasis to key parts of the 5th amendment text that I want you to look at. I am not a constitutional attorney so you will get a layman’s explanation here. If you let these gun grabbers in your home and give them what they are asking for, then you have given up your right to due process in my opinion. They have not produced a warrant that has been signed by a judge and you have given them what they wanted in spite of that. Also, in a way, you have just been forced to witness against yourself. If the situation were different I wouldn’t bring that up, but according to the Huffington Post if you comply then you might be arrested.

How’s that for justice? You accommodate the officers that come to your door. You hand over what they ask for. Then they might arrest you for being cooperative.

So what do you do if one of these gun grabbers shows up at your door? Tell them to wait outside while you call your attorney. Or tell them to come back when they can produce a warrant. This goes far beyond the 2nd Amendment. It may loosely relate to the 5th Amendment but as already discussed the 4th Amendment is definitely in play.

This California Legislation is a joke. It’s not only in the way it’s applied but in the way it came to be. Do you know where the money is coming from? I am again quoting the Huffington Post article below:

“Assemblyman Brian Jones (R-Santee) said he voted against the measure because the fees that make up the DROS funds are intended to cover the cost of background checks — not confiscations.

‘For example, if you go to the DMV and pay for a driver’s license, that fee is for processing the driver’s license, not for setting up sting operations for catching drunk drivers,’ he said.

‘If the legislature wants to raise extra funds for the DOJ, it would have to impose a tax on firearm sales, which requires a two-thirds vote,’ he added.”

From the Federal Government all the way to the California Legislature…they continue to use the back door. They will find a way.

We read this stuff almost every day and one of our first responses tends to be something like…that’s in California. Just a couple of weeks ago there were probably people in California saying…that’s in New York.

If you don’t know what I am talking about… check out a previous D.C. Clothesline article entitled New York Gun Confiscation Starts: May Set National Precedent

How many places does freedom have to fall before we come to the aid of our fellow Americans?

If the 2nd Amendment continues to crumble, no other rights will matter. This is the people’s power of enforcement. We keep hearing the rhetoric that they are only taking guns from the bad guys and every day we read stories that are quite contrary to government propaganda.

The gun grab is on and has been for a while…

Molon Labe!

  1. Not much to add. We knew it would happen by hook or crook;

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    1. Bent Isnt this the opening salvo for the HOLOHOAX scam that never happened (6million killed 8 million getting REPERATIONS) the scheme planned since before WW1 to guilt the world into being PUNKED AND PLUNDERED by the fkn J-WS for BILLIONS of $$$$$$$$$$$$$ WHAT ABOUT THE 60MILLION MURDERED(ABORTED) right here at home.

      1. A quote from Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago” that fits is all.

        Since you have demonstrated in the past that you don’t know the difference between a Zionist & a Jew and you continue to bait me into off- topic subjects, I’ll no longer respond to your posts. Your posting on my response to Cali Gun confiscation jumping to Jews to Abortion in such a short space is simply astounding.

        1. Bent I dont BAIT and I am well aware of the “difference ” between zzzzzzzs and JJJJJJJJJJs.You however seem to think you can cheer for these fkn J-W parasites on the trenches well your WRONG and the slightest WHIFF of this will be met INSTANTLY by me as long as I draw breath with nothing but the truth regarding satans children who are only 3% of the population in america yet control 96% of our information.So it would be best for you and yours if you took the standard operating procedure and STFU about the evil fkn j-ws.
          And another thing I am well aware of the origins of THAT STUPID FKN QUOTE THAT THE TRIBE SPREADS It DOES NOT PERTAIN TO AMERICA AS YOU AINT GOT OUR FKN GUNS AND NEVER WILL americans dont whine and cry likr fkn tribemembers we seek JUSTICE

  2. Recalling the gun confiscation that took place in New Orleans during the negro ‘insurrection’ after Katrina; had Molon Labe been the dominant theme today’s anti gun ‘discussions’ would have been very different. Unfortunately, the people demonstrated they will ‘bow to Israel’ when told to.

    Who would have imagined people would be arrested and given long prison sentences for having politically incorrect electronic images on electronic storage devices they ‘control'(?).

    BentSpear’s Solzhenitsyn quote is spot on.
