New York’s anti-gun insanity is getting even more paranoid and inappropriate, with the Buffalo Police now scanning the obituaries and looking for an opportunity to bully the families of the recently departed.
Buffalo Police say they’re determined to get more guns off the streets and now they’re checking to see whether pistol permit holders have passed away and what happened to their gun or guns.
During a press conference last week regarding weapons brought in illegally from Pennsylvania, police officials told reporters their biggest problem with weapons in crimes seems to involve guns that are stolen in burglaries from homes.
They feel that, in some cases, families are holding on to weapons even after the person who bought them originally has died.
So now they’re actually looking for those situations.
“We recently started a program where we’re cross referencing all the pistol permit holders with the death records, and we’re sending people out to collect the guns whenever possible so that they don’t end up in the wrong hands,” said Police Commissioner Daniel Derrenda [sic].” Because at times they lay out there and the family is not aware of them and they end up just out on the street.”
I’m quite tempted to mock the pure and unfiltered bovine excrement pouring forth from the mouth of Daniel Derenda, but if I did then I’d be undercutting the disgust I feel for the actions of the Buffalo PD, and the lies that Derenda is willing to vomit forth in order to bully grieving families.
What the Buffalo PD is hoping to accomplish is blindingly obvious. They’re going to use the relative’s pistol permit as the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent to get at every firearm they can, hoping to remove all the firearms from the home while the family is at their most vulnerable.
While a family is still reeling from the loss of a beloved mother, father, brother, son, or sister, uniformed officers from the Buffalo Police Department are going to show up at their doors and attempt to bully the family into surrendering their recently deceased relative’s firearms… all of them, if they can.
The handgun on the pistol permit is an excuse, but the officers will obviously try to convince the grieving family that they should surrender all of the other firearms belonging to the decedent as well.
The Buffalo PD try to get family’s to turn over what may very well be heirlooms, without allowing the family to pass them along to other family members who might appreciate them.
This is a despicable and heartless practice, and should be ended immediately.
