The Biden Administration has now reportedly urged the Supreme Court to allow police officers to enter private homes and seize legally owned firearms without a warrant.

The court heard the Biden administration press the case for firearms confiscation during oral arguments in Caniglia v. Strom on Wednesday.

The case involves an elderly married couple whose personal argument spiraled out of control and eventually led local police to seize the husband’s handgun without a warrant or proper cause.

As Forbes reports:

This expansion could also have perverse effects and disincentivize people from calling for help. As that brief noted, “When every interaction with police or request for help can become an invitation for police to invade the home, the willingness of individuals to seek assistance when it is most needed will suffer.”

But in its first amicus brief before the High Court, the Biden Administration glossed over these concerns and called on the justices to uphold the First Circuit’s ruling. Noting that “the ultimate touchstone of the Fourth Amendment is ‘reasonableness,’” the Justice Department argued that warrants should not be “presumptively required when a government official’s action is objectively grounded in a non-investigatory public interest, such as health or safety.”

“The ultimate question in this case is therefore not whether the respondent officers’ actions fit within some narrow warrant exception,” their brief stated, “but instead whether those actions were reasonable,” actions the Justice Department felt were “justified” in Caniglia’s case…

“The Fourth Amendment protects our right to be secure in our property, which means the right to be free from fear that the police will enter your house without warning or authorization,” said Institute for Justice Attorney Joshua Windham. “A rule that allows police to burst into your home without a warrant whenever they feel they are acting as ‘community caretakers’ is a threat to everyone’s security.”

Where is the darn ACLU loudly denouncing this blatant violation of our civil liberties? The Supremes had better be protecting both the 2nd Amendment and the laws against illegal search and seizure or they will have lost all credibility IMHO!

I totally agree! If they don’t stand behind the rights of all American citizens what good are they?

The ACLU actually filed a brief in this case supporting the petitioner, Mr. Caniglia. The ACLU argues that Mr. Caniglia’s forth amendment protections were violated.

I agree 100% Biden is not the one that is going to the houses or any place to confiscate the guns, he is allowing for the American People to retaliate against the police and any Legal Authorities. He is so blatantly taking our RIGHTS AWAY FROM US NOT TO MENTION VIOLATING THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

If they decide the police can do this, then our 4th and 2nd amendment rights will be gone! With Schumer trying to push white supremacists as domestic terrorists, guess who will be on their list! As the democrats keep pushing, they are pushing further toward Civil War, which is probably their end game and the destruction of the USA as founded.

Numb Nuts does not have the authority to take our rights away. We’re letting him take our rights away. Tyrants rely on the willingness of their subjects to be relieved of their liberties in exchange for money, recognition and/or special legislative protections and advantages. They call him “Quid Pro Joe”, and the American people are playing right into his hands.

The ACLU would be interested in such matters, but Americans should not have to rely on those resources to convince Biden and his supporters that they’re violating their Oath of Office. That’s the reason they’re called “Representatives”, because Americans have access to them for redress of our grievances. They must obey the Constitution. If they don’t, provisions are made to remove them.

America was already ruined. At least Trump took a stab with his MAGA scheme to get our jobs back and seal our borders.
