BUFFALO, N.Y. — Thursday, a state Supreme Court Judge ruled guns seized from David Lewis, 35, must be returned to him after he was incorrectly identified as violating the mental health provision of the SAFE Act. “We know that from the health care agency to the State Police, there was some kind of breach,” said Lewis’ attorney, Jim Tresmond.Notice the verbiage. Seized guns. Past tense. Which means when the judge ruled, the police had already shown up, seized the guns, and the Court had time to rule that they must be returned.
So, how do they know who has guns without a registry? Simple, New York has a registry. This is how it begins, folks. First, the background checks, then the registry, then they come for your guns. The next time a politician tells you this won't happen, tell them that it has already happened. Past tense.
