Involuntarily Held

Involuntarily Held

In an interview as agents inventoried the guns, Lynette Phillips said that while she’d been held involuntarily in a mental hospital in December, the nurse who admitted her had exaggerated the magnitude of her condition.

So not only did she get guns confiscated because some nurse deemed her "unstable" and had her committed for two days, but get this - SO DID HER HUSBAND!!

That's right. The law doesn't allow her to have ACCESS to guns. So HE LOST HIS GUNS TOO!

They had better luck in nearby Upland, where they seized three guns from the home of Lynette Phillips, 48, who’d been hospitalized for mental illness, and her husband, David. One gun was registered to her, two to him.

“The prohibited person can’t have access to a firearm,” regardless of who the registered owner is, said Michelle Gregory, a spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office.

The moral of this story?


Registration = CONFISCATION
