First, Randy Weaver broke the law by possessing the shotguns; no argument that officers had legal right to be there and they took what action they believed was necessary. What bothers me is how many Ruby Ridge scenarios we will have if laws are passed to ban and direct seizure of firearms. Can you imagine?
We will have to think this through. Ethically, could you seize someone’s firearm? Realistically, how far would you be willing to go? Is it worth it? These are serious questions you have to figure out for yourselves. Questions like these make me feel happy to be retired.
