GUN-SEIZURE LAWSUIT

An outspoken Long Island gun owner's home was raided by Nassau County detectives, who seized two dozen weapons he lawfully owns just one day after Rep. Carolyn McCarthy's office made a 911 call about him.

Freeport resident Gabriel Razzano claims he was targeted in the spring raid for his "unpopular" political beliefs.

He's now filed a $5 million federal lawsuit against the Nassau PD and McCarthy, charging they joined forces to strip him of his guns unconstitutionally.

The case pits Razzano against McCarthy, the most outspoken gun-control advocate in Congress. A crazed gunman murdered her husband in the infamous 1993 Long Island Rail Road Massacre.

The flap arose on March 19, when Razzano visited McCarthy's Garden City office to discuss an article about an illegal immigrant who was deported but was later nabbed in Freeport for the attempted murder of a cop.

"The office staff felt that Razzano's behavior was disruptive and threatening," said Lt. Kevin Smith, a police spokesman.

Razzano's home was raided the next morning.

Pick your favorite number. It sound like his 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendment rights were violated to some degree or another. The problem is it is unlikely he will recieve restitution. When the government violates your rights you get to go to court, the court will say, "Sure enough, your rights were violated." Then all you get is the warm fuzzy feeling from knowing you were right and they were wrong when they violated your rights. :sadstory:

I hope he wins his suit and the city and McCarthy have to pay up.

She's one of those unfortunate souls who suffered a tragedy and took the wrong lesson from it.
The reason a crazed gunman can get away with massacre is because people like her make sure that people have no means of self-defense.

It is easier to blame the gun, than it is to realize there are truly evil people out there.

I remember when the seizure happened. They painted Mr. Razzano as someone evil and that he had several illegal weapons. We all need to show support for him in the hopes that he brings down the misguided activities of the Senator and her cronies.
