Okay ladies and gentlemen, this site was recommended to me in seeking advice for a recent series of events.
Recently, due to either a misunderstanding between my wife and I or between my wife and a 911 operator,
I was pulled over, long story short my firearms were confiscated from my vehicle and residence. All but three of my firearms
were secure in a safe. One unloaded in a backpack in my vehicle, two at my residence in gun cases. approximately
nine or so firearms from the safe in my residence. The reason being after an argument between my wife and I
and a series of misunderstandings between her and I, and her and the dispatcher on the 911 call I was deemed
suicidal. For the record I was cleared on the scene of my traffic stop by paramedics, and the officers present. However,
my firearms were still confiscated, with no receipt of the items taken, I was first told by my local PD that I could
-pick my firearms up the following day, then told that I could not pick them up until the following Friday.
However, when that Friday came, I received a phone call from the PD stating that I could not pick up my
firearms without a doctors note, and that it was for liability reasons. I was also told they were advised this by the
States Attorneys office. I've contacted no less than two attorneys, and for reasons unknown to me, neither have
continued to stay in contact with me. I have looked into the matter, neither the paramedics nor the officers on scene deemed
me to be a threat to myself or others. The officers with my local PD never saw me or spoke to me in person they spoke
to my wife. The following day they advised me I could pick my firearms up the that Friday (three days later) and to my knowledge
did not report me as a threat to myself or others. And According to my reading, they only have 24 hours to do so. It wasn't until the
day they initially said I could pick them up, that they called me informing me that I could not pick the firearms up, without
a doctors note. I'm stumped on what to do about this, I was not suicidal. My wife tells me she never said to the officers at the
house she feared that I was going to kill myself. I'm not sure why, four days after the incident, things are all of a sudden different.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I can share more details in private messages if required.
