On Thursday afternoon, Robert Clement, 56,made multiple angry calls to the convalescent home. Over the course of the calls, Clement yelled profanities and eventually threatened to go to the business and “shoot up the place,” police said.

Clement was allegedly angry over his perceived lack of care the workers at the home gave to his elderly mother. A staffer at the convalescent home immediately called 911 out of fear Clement would follow through on the threat.

Clement did have firearms registered to him, police said.

Officers obtained a search warrant for the property and an arrest warrant. With help from the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Maria officers conducted a “tactical arrest operation” and took Clement into custody without incident.

Police confiscated several firearms and held them as evidence. Officers booked Clement into the Santa Barbara County Jail.

You have the right to bear arms.  You have the right to free speech. Combining the two, in this case, cancels them both out.

Go figure; there are reasonable limitations on our rights…

..who knew?….Not this guy.   

Why the silence from the second amendment crowd on this?  They took his guns for Pete’s sake…for merely for exercising his 1st amendment rights  … could say they pried them from his (warm) fingers ;-)

Government overreach!
