I guess he didn't pay his union dues.

I read the article and I still don't know why they took his guns.

So WTF?

One of the comments on the article sortof made sense. Perhaps the man was having serious issues. The fact that this made the news makes me , but perhaps the police thought that, at the time, it would be best to hold his guns. We're still in the wake of a guy who was stopped by police with mental health issues and then went on to shoot a whole bunch of people in AZ. I'm not saying that taking the man's firearm collection was right or wrong, but we simply don't know what the officers experienced when they met him. If I were an officer, I would not want to find myself in the position where I had to make a mental-health call in this political environment.

What the fuck? They confiscated his guns because he shelters homeless people? AND they made him go thru a psychiatric evaluation? Why has someone not re-confiscated his guns from the police before they "lose" them? Assbags.

Note to self : lock guns away and pretend they don't exist.

Good thing somebody actually counted all 874 boxes of ammunition.

I'd be more worried about the police with mental health issues.

That sounds like a liability.

But doesn't this "Fox 8 News is not identifying the clergyman because he was not arrested or charged with any crime." kinda make your point moot? If he wasn't dangerous enough to arrest, why was he dangerous enough to have his property seized?

It's always best to have a safe with the contents locked up. If they don't have a warrant they can't open it.

In addition to the guns, police also confiscated 874 boxes of various ammunition from the man's apartment.

Weird. The only thing I could think of is if the firearms were readily accessible by the guests at his place. Even then, I would think some sort of crime would have to occur before seizure.

I do doubt he is a man of the cloth.

They're not saying it, but this is all pretty much SOP for an attempted suicide.
