This is primarily a 4th Amendment case, but there is a substantial 2A element. Once the city was forced to drop all charges because their evidence was ruled inadmissible, they chose to go back to their fabricated, discredited story in order to prevent SGT Corrigan from taking possession of his firearms. http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/...rest-iraq-vet/ I'm no lawyer, but it seems that the city isn't so much concerned with the law here. Looks like they are trying to enforce their ideology through fantasy and desperate measures. It's shameful the way they treated this veteran in the first place, but also how they are willing to mangle the law in their efforts to deprive him of his property.
