    Some good news, but mainly bad

    Today at 11 AM, I was told by Desk Sgt. Peduto of the Coral Gables Police, that my Glock 36 and S&W 357 340PD were being held for an exhaustive check.

    4 weeks at the earliest to get them both back, along with my Ammo, 2 holsters and one mag holder. It was stunning but what can you do? The pleasant Sarge had no idea why the 4 week hold. Perhaos lab and ballistics checks he told me.

    As if this was not bad enough, yesterday at noon, my 25 year old grandson and I were awakmened by the sound of pounding on doors, banging on windows and the door bell ringing uncessantly..

    When we finally staggered to the front door, our corner house was surrounded by 6 Six Squad cars , 3 from Wesr Miami, 2 fron the City of Miami and 1 fom Miami Dade County.

    The leader of the Pack, 41 ear old Dectetive William Pazos has a big smile on his face. He and I had net in 1998 when he was a rookie at the Police Academy and I was working fir the North Miami Police.

    We have been friends ever since. I was told by William, that during a series of calls over the past 10 days, the caller(s) had reason to suspect that Mr. Jones, of 6200 SW Zero Street in West Miami had suddenly had a drastic change of demeanor and they were concerned that he may br stockpiling a firearms arsenal and perhsps was soon to become a public menace.

    Detective Pazos blew that up within 5 minutes and within 15 minutes all except Pazos had departed, including also a dozen bewildered neigbors of Mr Jones who has quietly been living in that same house since May 12, 1967.

    So now it is 2.03 PM, the next.day I am very slowly sipping a Jack Daniels at my favorite local hang out and pondering what in world is going to come up next.

    It’s been a couple days and many posts later, and you still haven’t explained why the guns were confiscated. And you seem surprised that someone called the police after you begged people to do so. I really hope this is just trolling because trolling is less sad and more easily correctable than mental illness.

    So after reading this about 24 times, I gather that you might indeed be the above mentioned Mr. Jones? Is that correct?

    It sounds like they have some concerns beyond what I and others have conveyed to them. Has the ATF come by yet?

    To be fair, no one has the addresses figured out in Miami yet. The street numbers are not even in sequence.

    I thought about searching, but "SW Zero" street seemed fictitious.

    I knew a guy who's father was getting some sort of mental illness in his old age. They had to take the TV and radio out of the house because he would think they were describing things he did and try to confess to them.

    For instance, the family would come home and he would tell everyone he robbed a liquor store....or things worse. You can imagine.

    Is this some kind of derivative of the "Tears in Rain" monologue delivered by character Roy Batty in the 1982 Ridley Scott film Blade Runner?

    I am guessing the OP is attempting to disguise both the actual address and his real last name, which seems prudent for the internet.
