A 51-year-old volunteer firefighter and family man has had every gun he owns taken away by the government.
Robert King was arrested and accused of illegally possessing a pistol that he reportedly fired in Columbia County, striking a neighbors parked car.
But that’s not why his guns were confiscated.

Police claim that after his arraignment, King made a “comment” about harming himself.
That comment is what put the “Red Flag” law into motion and allowed authorities to seize all of his guns for at least a year, maybe longer.
King’s wife says the comment made by her husband was taken out of context. But sadly, that doesn’t matter. Context doesn’t matter when it comes to seizing guns in liberal red flag states. King was forced to surrender a pistol and more than a half-dozen rifles.
In today’s “red flag” world you’re not allowed to be angry, fly off the handle, or say something you might regret later. No. You can’t be “human” anymore – not if you want to keep your guns in a “red flag” state.

This is the very first “red flag” case in New York State, since Governor Cuomo signed the law.
It surely won’t be the last.
Authorities heard the comment and filed an extreme risk protection order against King. His guns were temporarily seized on September 4th, pending Friday’s hearing.
The state can present new evidence to extend that time period. King can also request another hearing during the year to make an attempt to get the guns back sooner.
King made obscene gestures to our cameras outside of court, but his lawyer later told NEWS10 he is a good family man, a business owner and a volunteer firefighter. […]
King’s wife claims his comments in court which triggered the new law were taken out of context.
