“Recently filed suit in Eastern District of New York. A gun owner had all his firearms confiscated by Nassau County Police Dept for having a shouting match with his son. No violence, threats of violence, no brandishing of weapons. Nothing. Violations of 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 14th Amendments. We expect the County to move to dismiss claiming that Penal Law 400 allows them to do all this. If so, we will challenge the unlimited discretion of the licensing officer. I have already been in contact with Allan Gura, the attorney in Heller and McDonald who indicates that at the appropriate time, the Second Amendment Foundation will join in…the plaintiff is a disabled member of the NYFD seriously injured on 9/11.”

The case number is CV - 14 - 7210 (ADS) (AKT). … Art. 78 procedure does not satisfy due process requirements. Case was Razzano v. County of Nassau, No. 07 - cv- 3983. Reported 765 F. Supp.2d. 176. The plaintiff was awarded $275,000. That case was pre Heller and McDonald. We should be in better shape now although I have found that the NY Courts have pretended that Heller and McDonald never happened. Just like the 2nd Amendment is not in the Constitution.

The above case has not stopped Nassau County from going ahead and continuing to do the same unconstitutional acts over and over. Therefore we are asking for a permanent injunction and punitive damages.”

Expenses expected: “ Thus we will be taking the depositions of the Chief of Police, the Commissioner of Police, Commander of 1st Precinct, officers involved in the seizure and possibly the County Executive and District Attorney. Deposition cost $500 to $1,000 each for the court reporter. You see how it can add up. I am not being paid any attorneys fees at this time…We will try to move forward but it will soon become burdensome for Mr. Weinstein. So right now, he is paying expenses and I'm working for free. I have already contacted our organizations such as NYRPA and NRA, SCOPE etc. They seem to be more interested in getting donations than financially helping in ongoing litigation.

Anyone who wants to contribute can send a check to my office, address is on the Complaint. Made out to Robert Bean, Attorney in Trust for Marc Weinstein. We will keep track and if monetary damages are recovered, we will refund you donations."

We are now pursuing two more cases in US District Court on Long Island. In the Carroll case a young man called the police to report a stolen gun, (an AR-15). When they arrived they stole the rest of his guns. It has been over a year and they have not been returned.

More recently we filed the Cusumano case. In that case a man's sister filed an order of protection. His pistol license and pistols were immediately taken. Three days later a judge vacated the Order of Protection and dismissed the sister's case. It has been over a year and his license has not been reinstated nor his pistols returned. This is a clear violation of Due Process but allowed under NY PL 400 which make PL 400 unconstitutional. We need all the help we can get in fighting these lawless acts of Nassau County, NY.

Thank you all for your support. Depositions will start in July and my clients need all the help they can get just for the court reporter expenses.

We are continuing the Weinstein case and now have the related Carroll case pending in the same Court before the same Judge. Nassau County continues on its same course until and unless the court stops them. Thank you all for you support.
