Man Shot for Resisting Red Flag Gun Confiscation #WeToldYouSo ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_MP4vo5yOE From the comments: I’ve been served with one of these orders in King County (Seattle, WA). Astonishing to hear local authorities saying it’s a smooth process. He is talking out both sides of his mouth. One we have presumably unstable individual who are a danger to themselves, on the other hand they are minding “a legal” court order. You see these types of orders often in family law cases where one side files for a protection order. This is done to gain an upper hand in child custody and often takes several months to sort out. While your weapons are in law enforcement custody they will run ballistics testing on them. They compare those ballistics in a database to see if used in a crime. IF you get your weapons back you’ll have to file a petition to have ballistic data from Your weapons removed from database (if that matters to you). The order to surrender weapons typically requires you to surrender all ammunition also which WILL NOT BE RETUNED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Ammo is immediately destroyed. The reason this program runs smoothly is because it’s a big net that captures far more law abiding citizens then alleged dangerous folks. After my experience.... was left with no confidence in our political or judicial system. Innocent until proven guilty, due process, the constitution. Without a willingness to exercise your second amendment (through force if necessary)..... the constitution is nothing more then words on paper.
