There is a tendency among Democrats, especially after the Obama years, to do what they want regardless of what the law says. Obama did it all the time, setting the example for others.

That same mentality resulted in the New Jersey State Police showing up at the home of Leonard Cottrell Jr. where they attempted to confiscate his guns without a warrant or court order. It was all prompted when a student at his son’s school told his mom that he overheard Cottrell’s son talking about the best way of escaping a school shooting. The mom panicked and phoned police who didn’t bother to go through legal channels before showing up at the Cottrell home and demanding he turn over his firearms.

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law…

The normal process in New Jersey, especially since the election of anti-gun governor Phil Murphy, if for police to act, confiscate guns and then seek obtaining a warrant or court order. In most cases, the people don’t know their constitutional rights, but Cottrell did and after several hours, the police agreed there was no threat made by his son and that there was no reason for the confiscation. Legal gun owners need to know their constitutional rights and stand up to protect them as Cottrell did.
