NATIONAL CITY, CA — When the ATF insisted a firearms parts retail shop hand over the names of 5,000 customers, the store owner refused and obtained a restraining order against the harassing agency. Nonetheless, gun-wielding ATF agents showed up in force, broke into the shop, cracked the safe, and stole client list and a large amount of merchandise.

CALIFORNIA — Recent increases in budget and staff are enabling California cops to escalate their efforts to confiscate guns from people the state has deemed to be “Prohibited Persons” — people living amongst the public whom the state has decided, for one reason for another, are not deserving of exercising all of the inalienable rights enumerated in the Constitution. Victims of these disturbing raids describe how residents are met with overwhelming numbers of cops, frightened into letting the cops into their homes, and in at least some cases, are forced to the ground with guns pointed in their faces while police seize their property.
