Quote:State takes man's guns: 'He said we made a big mistake'

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A Bakersfield man was stunned when state agents showed up at his home and took all his guns.

Eighteen weapons were seized but then returned a couple weeks later.

Eyewitness News discovered it was the work of a special state task force.

The weapons were returned to Michael Merritt, but he's left with plenty of questions.

"It's just the worst feeling," Merritt told Eyewitness News. "It's a loss of your liberty, of your rights. I almost passed out when they said they wanted all my guns."

Merritt said that was the night of Nov. 5. Several agents arrived at his door and started asking questions about which guns he owned.

"I thought, he's here to get my guns for some reason," Merritt described. "He says, 'You have a felony here from 1970.' I said, 'A felony?

A pot possession charge from 1970.'"

The Bureau of Firearms spokesman who responded to Eyewitness News said the agents in Merritt's case were working from court records that had not been updated.

He said sometimes court records are not inputted correctly.

I would have those firearms gone over with a fine toothed comb looking for micro stamps.
