Police Seize Guns, Ammo from Roslindale Garage Near Jamaica Plain

A search warrant led the Youth Violence Strike Force to seize boxes of ammo for different guns for a 357-magnum, Wolf 223, and more, on Thursday.

A search warrant at a Roslindale home led Boston Police to seize lots of guns, ammo and even an illegal motorcycle engine from a Seymour Street home.

The home isn't far down Hyde Park Avenue from Jamaica Plain.

On Thursday around 12:55 p.m., members of the Boston Police Youth Violence Strike Force executed a search warrant at 45 Seymour St., in Roslindale. After not receiving any answer, an officer breached the door of the garage and gained entrance without encountering an individual.

No one was arrested, but police spoke to the father of the property's owner, who provided police with his son's cell phone number.

All the more reason for law-abiding citizens to use their Second Amendment rights to the fullest extent possible. Owning a rifle or handgun legally, and responsibly possessing it, practicing with it, and becoming familiar with it ensures greater security for yourself and perhaps your neighbors. In a situation such as a severe emergency (i.e. like Katrina, or a Carrington Event where the electrical grid goes down, or hyperinflation) where the normal police resources are overwhelmed, how will you ensure the safety of your family? This story clearly demonstrates that those people inclined towards criminal activity have no intention of following the gun laws (the AR-15 type rifle above is illegal to possess within Boston City Limits). During an emergency scenario, if the police are overwhelmed by 911 calls, these individuals will have no restraints. And those unarmed will be sheep for them to prey upon. If at this point in the slow collapse of our economy, with the tensions building across a variety of societal pressure points, you can't imagine a scenario where the excrement hits the fan, so to speak, you are delusional. The Federal Government itself advises you to "Make a plan, and be prepared." Lawfully owned firearms are an integral part of one's personal security. Never forget that these criminal elements are always waiting, prepared, for the bulwarks of civil society to weaken, or to fall.
