Have you ever experienced the fallout of a badly written law, a law that, due to incompetence or stealthy malice, criminalizes entirely reasonable, common and non-criminal behavior? Such laws are all too common, and all too often catch the law-abiding and honest in their widely spread nets.

Such is the case in Buffalo, NY where local authorities are invoking a little known and rarely enforced law to seize the guns of the recently deceased. It doesn’t matter if there are spouses or relatives, the law actually forces them to apply for permission to keep the property that is their inheritance.

My article on this legal obscenity, titled “I’m Very Sorry For Your Loss…Now Gimme The Guns” is up at The Truth About Guns.

If you have a few minutes, it may be worth your time, and as always, I appreciate your comments here and there.
