A 70-year-old Vietnam veteran was minding his own business watching television in his Taberg, New York, home when law enforcement knocked on his door, walked in, and then seized his firearms.
The veteran, Don Hall, was then told by the deputies that they had a right to take his guns, saying he had a record of mental issues. They took his handguns, then had the nerve to ask him if he had any long guns, then took those also.
Hall, needless to say, was absolutely bewildered as to how they came to that conclusion, and he tried to think back to what he could have said or done in the last 70 years that had anything to do with mental issues.
He was flabbergasted and told the media “I was guilty until I could prove myself innocent. They don’t tell you why or what you supposedly did. It was just a bad screw-up”
