Ill keep this short. Last Monday there was an accidental discharge in my home, I was shot through the knee with a Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm. No charges were pressed against the shooter. He is still a friend of mine. My wife called 911. The police came as well as the medics. We made it clear to the police at the scene that it was an accidental discharge and no charges were to be filed. I spent 8 days in the hospital and got out today and am recovering well. I keep a Mossberg 12ga next to my couch and a Glock 21 .45 pistol under the loveseat cushion for home protection. This is were the problem is. The shooting happened in the living room. When the police arrived they confiscated my buddies Smith 9mm AND my 12ga and Glock. Upon returning home from the hospital I find out that the local PD has sent our weapons off for ballistics testing. After up to 8 weeks we can “apply” to get them back. We have to wait until the “investigation” is done. What investigation. They questioned me, my wife, and my buddy the shooter. There was no foul play. They also asked to search the rest of the house for any other weapons but my wife told them no, there weren’t anymore and they couldn’t search. They also took a “fake silencer” from an air soft gun because the cops said it “looked real”….whatever. What are they doing and are they doing it legally? Were they within their responsibility to take my weapons after my friend willingly turned over his gun that shot me? Why the investigation? What’s going on here?
