    Civil Rights - Gun Seizure - Property Return - Mass Murder Threat

    20-page opinion at:

    brief summary:
    4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
    Civil Rights - Gun Seizure - Property Return - Mass Murder Threat
    Police did not violate plaintiff's Fourth Amendment rights when they promptly made a warrantless seizure of his extensive cache of firearms, ammunition, firearms accessories and survivalist literature from plaintiff's garden apartment after handcuffing him upon a hotline operator's report to police, minutes earlier, that showed a man on the edge, armed, suicidal and inclined to kill his co-workers on the way out. However, whether defendant City of Gaithersburg is entitled to retain the seized items and not return them to plaintiff, a registered firearms collector, involves questions of state law not considered by the 4th Circuit.
