    From the news article:
    Deputies called to suspected shooter’s home 39 times over seven years

    "Cruz — who posted images of himself on Instagram posing with guns and kniveshas confessed to killing 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and made an alarming online comment about a recent mass shooting.

    “Man I can do so much better,” he wrote. [referencing a recent mass shooting]

    The negligence in Cruz's case is absolutely inexcusable and appalling. These were not hidden or subtle indications that something might be amiss, these were flashing neon signs about not only Cruz's interests but his intentions.

    Was he ordered to do so under due process or because some cop wanted it?

    And innocent until proven guilty is part of any interaction with the government.

    This is guilty until proven innocent.

    But a fascist fuck like you is OK with that.

    This is rules and regulations before the criminal procedure takes place. A libertarian polperv like you, Marty, just does not get it.

    The big deal is that Constitutional rights are being violated without someone committing a crime or even being charged with one or being given any opportunity to defend themselves from the charge of appearing "possibly violent". News flash dude: appearing "possibly violent" is not a crime and a judge is not a psychiatrist or a mind reader nor is he qualified to make the determination without defense and expert testimony. The law is unconstitutional and a fine example of tyranny.

    What crime is he charged with?
    The confiscation was itself a major crime. The man would have had the Constitutional Right to defend himself and his property with deadly force if necessary.
