What happened with the Wayne Wright case?

Recommended Posts

Referenced in other threads is a news/law story about the LAPD's overreaching to seize firearms:

http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2015/08/johannes-paulsen/ca-vet-seeks-justice-after-lapd-destroys-his-700k-gun-collection/

The story came out in 2015 but I can't find anything newer about how the case was adjudicated.  Does anyone know more about this lawsuit?   

I am curious about such cases but often there is little followup after the initial court filing, especially if a lawsuit went against the gun control people.

Very interesting, thanks!  It seems the case is remanded back to the district court.  Poor guy (in more ways than one.)  It will be another three years before a final resolution is reached.

I believe by the time it is heard by the courts Wayne Wright will be broke and unarmed still.

That’s the true travesty of today’s justice system.  The cost of taking a case all the way through is prohibitively expensive for all but the biggest businesses, rich elite, or the government.

He would be lucky to be alive to see that day in court let alone to get everyone one of his firearms back intact.

You may not have noticed in the original lawsuit.  After stalling and making up procedural delays for years, the county destroyed all his firearms without giving him the required 180 day notice.

I did read the entire article or original lawsuit regarding Wayne Wright. Stopped halfway after hearing how many firearms were taken from him. My fault entirely. It bothers me seeing stories like these as common headline news. A fair point to read the entire article before commenting.

Per the links above and the original lapd press release, his original arrest was Sept 16, 2004.   So eleven years had already passed when he filed his 2015 lawsuit.  Certainly a travesty of justice.

      Hello, new owner of a handgun in NJ. Had a question for all of you experts out there! I keep seeing all these different things online so I have an suv so the trunk area is accessible to the back seat area. From my understanding, it needs to be locked in a case and its fine to be in the trunk of my suv? Also my other question.. the ammo.. that needs to be in a separate case? Does it need to have a lock on it or can it just be a bag with a zipper?

      So I've got my FID and am looking to purchase a replica MP40 airgun for target practice. This is the gun in question I'm particularly looking at https://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Umarex_Legends_MP40_CO2_BB_Submachine_Gun/4312
      The gun itself is capable of full auto firing at roughly 450fps. It also includes a 52rd pellet mag. I've read up on the airgun laws and know that airguns are considered firearms under NJ state law, so does that mean every firearm law applies to airguns also or are there exceptions to them where you can purchase any airgun as long as you have an FID?
      Thanks

      The 9th Circuit hearing the Peruta case enbanc just ruled that there is no second amendment right to carry a concealed firearm in public.

      "The en banc court affirmed the district courts’ judgments and held that there is no Second Amendment right for members of the general public to carry concealed firearms in public."

      THE KRISS VECTOR
      From wiki: "The Vector's action, the so-called KRISS Super V System (KSVS), is an articulated mechanism which allows the bolt and an inertia block to move downward into a recess behind the magazine well."
      so the action is not above the pistol grip.
       
      NJ LAW
      And the NJ law says
      "i. A semi-automatic rifle that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least
      two of the following: (1) A folding or telescoping stock;(2) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;(3) A bayonet mount;(4) A flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor; and (5) A grenade launcher; So does a bullpup's pistole grip count as one of these things. Since its pistol grip is not below the action. So you can buy any out of state tavor with only modifying the magazine and not the flash hidder.   So the Kriss vector's  Pistol grip is not beneath the action. The pistol grip is behind the action so it does not quilify as being "a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon."  Does this mean that one is legally allowed to have a pistol grip and a folding stock on this rifle? Why not?

      Bullpup rifles are defined as "a modern firearm configuration in which the action and magazine are located behind the trigger group and alongside the shooter's face, so there is no wasted space for the buttstock as in conventional designs."

    • I recall my first match at Shongum...nervous as hell....but it was sooooo much fun. There was a guy on here, forget his name, moved to NC ..big coffee drinker etc.  Tall white hair shot a Glock....  saw Maksim out...  Pizza Bob, Krdshrk etc...and others....  was a lot of fun.      
    • Good Article to read! https://bearingarms.com/john-petrolino/2022/07/05/new-jersey-governor-signs-most-of-his-anti-gun-wish-list-into-law-n60072 You can go on back and read the entire message I sent them in full, but you get the idea. They were put on notice. Someone did tell them, very publicly and individually, that these bills are things they aught to think about before voting on, because it’s likely they’ll be deemed a violation of our rights. As more information on these laws comes out, as well as any litigation announcements, we’ll be sure to pass that along. In the mean time, the Garden State’s Independence Day celebration is clearly over, but we do have NYSRPA to blanket us, and keep us a warm.   Hideous Bastard!
    • I know jealousy is a sin! . That might be one of the best 1911 carry pieces on the market today. 
    • Yes, i meant to say the 5.11 leather belts. I have a few of the covert models for CCW, the leather belts are no joke.
    • I think the ovewhelming probability is that they wouldn't stop at allowing it, they would make it mandatory, at a ridiculous level of coverage. I could never support that.
