Police confiscate a woman’s legal guns, refuse to return them

Fire them! Police confiscate a woman’s legal guns, then refuse to return them despite admitting they are legally owned.

Her cache [of weapons] somehow caught the attention of Lakewood Police, who paid a visit last September. When they found Rice wasn’t home, they asked an obliging employee of the complex to open up the apartment without her consent. Once inside, they raided the gun rack, making off with 13 firearms worth around $15,000. The only problem: They had no apparent reason to. [emphasis mine]

Not only did the police essentially steal her property, they entered her apartment illegally.
