On 12/16/2012 Hawthorne PD came to my house for an "animal abuse" call and they jumped my LOCKED gates and searched my property and took my 7.62 rifle for "safe keeping" because i could not show proof i own it. I showed them the turners DROS forms and they said it wasnt enough! . is it legal for the police to jump my gates like this? They also broke the doors to my garage open to search it. HELP!

It could be legal to search depending on cause. Taking your rifle though from your property doesn't make sense. Contact CGF and/or a lawyer

Proof you owned it. Ha. Unfortunately you need a lawyer, fortunately they don't stand a chance if it was a legal config.

The OP, having received and acknowledged good info, now needs to talk to that lawyer and get advice on what else, if anything, to say.
