Also they are confiscating guns from people. At least in NY. After Sandy Hook, a friend of mine had a gun, and there was a record of him having some sort of mental issue, that wasnt too serious. They came to his house and took his gun. Why did they take his gun you ask? Because in NY he had to register it.
Basically cops said turn in your guns or your bail is going to be high, woman has no criminal history and is a legal owner of two registered guns. She turned them in to avoid the high bail.
