    Oops! New York State Police Admit to Major Mistake in Gun Confiscation Case WBEN

    Buffalo, NY (WBEN / release) - Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs says State Police now admit they fingered the wrong person, when they recommended a pistol permit suspension. Here is the release from his office:

    Erie County, NY – Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs said that late today he received a call from the New York State Police informing him that they had provided information on the wrong person when they notified his office of someone whose permit should be suspended because of the new mental health provisions in New York’s SAFE Act.

    "Previously we received correspondence from the State Police that a pistol permit holder in our County had a mental health condition that made them a potential harm to themselves or others, a provision in the NY SAFE Act that requires suspension of their pistol permit license," said Jacobs.

    At that time as required by law, Jacobs’ referred the item and all supporting documentation to the State Supreme Court Judge in charge of issuing pistol permits. Acting on the information provided by the State Police, the judge issued a suspension of the permit pending a hearing.

    "When the State Police called to tell us they made a mistake and had the wrong person...it became clear that the State did not do their job here, and now we all look foolish."

    Jacobs’ believes the central reason for this error is the inherent flaws in the mental health reporting provisions in the NY SAFE Act. "Until the mental health provisions are fixed, these mistakes will continue to happen," says Jacobs. http://www.wben.com/Jacobs--Wrong-Pe...-Guns/16021389

    The reasonable response would be a full on lawsuit against the State. How many times do you think the state will be ok with being sued before they stop all this nonsense?

    If I lived in NY I would have taken my firearms across state line to a friend or family's home to secure them till this can get cleared up.
