I am a new member to Calguns. I was picked up an a 5150 last fall, assesed and raleased. I attempted to get my firearms back and was railroaded by the City Attorney of Santa Rosa, CA. What happened is at the hearing, before I went in the assistant city atty and I spoke. I insisted on my right to speak to the judge, and he informed me that would not happen, and I would never see my guns again. Shortly thereafter my Brother in Law joined us and with him we worked out a deal to allow him to transfer the guns to him, who would then send them to my sons in Minnesota where I relocated from in February off 2011. We walked into court, I was not allowed to speak and all he did was request and extension so he could file the papers, which was done, and now the court issued an order allowing my brother in law an interfamilial transfer of the weapons. On Monday of this week i spoke to the City attorney again and he informed me that the law does not allow a family transfer to a brother in law, must be father to son or grandfather, etc.
He spoke about transferring them to my son who lives in MN, but works in New York a lot, which would require him to fly here to pick them up. In the mean time I have been doing my homework. I did apply to the DOJ and there are no restrictions to my owning or purchasing a weapon. I also picked up my medical files and it states I was not admitted to the facility and released after an assesment. I sent an email to the Assistant City atty, and City atty, demanding they correct this action and return my property. There is a great article I saw this AM about a lawsuit for not returning weapons filed against Oakland, San Francisco and the DOJ for much this same thing.
The response I got from the Assistant city atty was that the court order was in effect still that my brother in law could transfer the weapons, though he knows and informed me that it cannot be done and that I must deal with this by July 31, the dates the guns will be destroyed. The firearms are not valuable, a 22 rifle, old shotgun and 6 shot 22 revolver, however have sentimental value to me. I am retired on Social Security Disability, and have limited funds, however am willing to pay to see justice done. If there is anyone who can help me or refer me to someone who can help please contact me. Thank you all.

Are you willing to pay many, many, many times the value of the guns to get them back, with no certainty that you will get them back?

If so, throw money at a lawyer.

If not, chalk this up as a learning experience to not nut-up and get 5150'd... be responsible for your actions and all that.

Find an attorney who will represent you pro bono. Start with CalGuns. Then move to any other legal aid foundation that covers you. Sorry, but your post is kind of confusing so I cannot provide more substantive advice. I also suggest that you openly record any further conversations you have with the city attorney, it sounds like s/he may be attempting to improperly intimidate you. You have just as much right to speak before the judge as does the city attorney.

Contact CGF - this is the kind of crap our donations are trying to stop.

Alternately you could try gun rights lawyer Don Kilmer.

STFU. You may not understand the problems with this, but you can get 5150'd by a police officer for no good reason at all, and boom, 5 year gun ban.

No, please use that for DOJ issues only unless you're trying to drive me nuts.

Just for you, since you asked nicely. (And everyone else who might need it.)

I have an appointment with a gun attorney tomorrow, I have also contacted the DOJ. And yes, I am willing to spend whatever it takes as long as being a free American is at stake.
