I'm sorry to hear that! Hopefully this gets cleared up sooner than later. I would hate to see him get dragged through the court system for legally owned and configured firearms.

Under control for now.

I don't (nor should I) have all the details.

Dude did nothing wrong, and has (sorry, BJF) what appears to be a nut-job sister.

Let's let sleeping dogs rest for now, since he'll be getting in touch w/a lawyer.

No, why would it? This is an *employee*. It's not the business, and you are doing a transaction with the *business*.

i was doing some PPT transfers at bright spot pawn this afternoon and got a chance to speak to the employee in question.

hes doing alright and hopes to resolve this situation in the courtroom.

i told him we as a community appreciate what bright spot pawn has done for us and we'll do what we can to help. he said he might need our help in the future (little stuff) and i said post up and we will try to be there.

i wish him the best of luck in brushing off this wrongdoing, we are rooting for him and BWO

I was there yesterday with Socal doing our PPT. My first time @ BSP and the employee in question took care of us. How he had the patience for us was beyond me. Sitting there all day long just DROS'ing firearms. Wish you the best and hope that all this mess gets rectified for you soon.

I've dealt with both Chris & Geoff for a long time regarding tools. Bought my
2nd G Colt SAA there. Sold my AK to them before the 2000 AW gelding law
set in. I've spent an easy 3000 there. I hate to see any of these guys get
into a mess and I'll call Monday to offer any help if needed, if they're
open. The are being messed with and it's not right.

[ I hope I spelled Geoff's name right. It might be Jeff.]

I cant say much at this point other than i contacted Bruce & and am going to speak with one other lawyer... but what i can say is im completley bummed out that someone can make accuzations to the police, and the police can play god even though those accuzations were dis-proved by the appropriate medical profesionals, which police are not trained medical professionals to make that determination

not faceing AW charges on fixed mag AR's as of yet.... but bruce said they can still decide to be *****s and I cannot afford this type of lawyer if they did

You should not comment further on any aspect and let the pros do their thing.

I need any information on bruce that anyone with first hand experiance can provide, ive heard some concering things about him from others and would like to prove or dis-prove what i have heard after the day i decided to hire him, I am currently waiting on first hand knowledge from someone who had a case & bad eperiance with bruce about 5 years ago

bwiese

I don't know of anyone who's done business with Mr. Colodny. He does have useful info on his website.

I *do* know that the folks Trutanich-Michel are sharp cookies and can (as can others here) affirm that Chuck Michel and Jason Davis are A-OK folks.

Your choice of attorney may be determined by fees, nature of case, and locality of lawyer to your area.

I would remind you that your case is not necessarily a true firearms case per se but really a "she said I'm a nutjob" case.

Dude, maybe that's because he's being realistic. The answer to many questions is often, "maybe".

That's really the nature of law. There are no guaranteed outcomes. You never know what a Judge or jury will do. Law is much more art than hard science.

Patience is the key (and don't call the lawyer every day. They charge you for every call!).

I got all my guns back from the R.S.O. (Riverside County Sherriffs Office). This matter was over a argument at my familys house where at the time i was living, I deceided enough is enough & i was moving out, sister called the sherriffs office because i was going to leave with my property which included firearms she also does not like firearms, the sherriffs dispatch jumped the gun saying 5150, the officers said "we dont like civilians having guns" so they followed up on the 5150 to take them legally at no time did i ever say anything other than im leaving im tired of this S..t! ill be back later for more of my things. the sad part is, the 5150 thing is going on more than jus my case or my county, other county officers are also using this to their advantage to take guns away from people. the thought is, make people criminals or rule them mentally unfit to possess firearms unless they can get a good lawyer to fight them. its jus another way for them to chip at the 2nd amendment if everyone is criminals or crazy so no one will have them. dont get me wrong though, there are many officers that support the 2nd, and dont aggree with current laws, its jus the few bad apples that spoil the rest.

Dude, sorry you had to suffer thru that, it sucks. I got the hell outta there, it was pointless to stand in the tide of oppression as it rises to suck the life out of you. How sad to hear of the evilness that is becoming the CA LEOs.

I'm out in Phoenix, maybe it's time to make a change in lifestyle where you're free, and away from crazy family.

Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

Glad you posted the follow up, and Good to hear you got your FA’s back. Sorry to hear the cost, and wear and tear on you. But ever hear the expression “that which doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger”?

Sounds like you were never arrested or charged with anything, but put through the ringer none the less – mostly because you owed guns. If you were trying to leave the house with a blow-up doll collection, a donkey or host of other weird things, you’d never have been 5010’d. And Imagine how different the outcome would have been if you had :
- Possessed non SB23 compliant arms, or even a single tracer round
- had actually made just a mock threat in front of any witnesses
- even posted rants on MySpace that could be misconstrued as dangerous possibilities

Unfortunately gun owners need to walk a tighter line than average Joe. I don’t think having pink furniture on the OLLs would have helped, but keeping your cool did. Note to all - plan ahead. If the “writing is on the wall” …. Get your stuff, not talking the DVD collection, to an uncle’s house or some trusted friend before the “ I gotta get F out of here melt down” happens. I got my important stuff to my brother’s house before I served my ex-wife with the divorce papers – saved me a lot of trouble and money. FYI community property laws make it expensive to settle some “family” matters. Luckily cars, boats, houses have titles with clear “owners” …. One of the few advantages to having guns registered - its very clear when it’s “his” not “hers”. I never had to pay my lawyer a dime to sort that one out.

The same thing happened in Alameda, guy at work calls the cops and says another guy is crazy and they went over and took everything..including the .50 bmg with its paperwork.

Cops have figured out how to take your guns from you even if they are legal.:cool:
