  2. Given the comment she purportedly made to her psychiatrist, I might be able to buy the police’s justification for taking her in for an evaluation. Maybe. But what was their cause for searching her home and confiscating her guns? If they are going to claim the took them to protect her from herself, then why did they not also confiscate her cutlery, rope/belts/shoelaces/bedsheets/etc, and any poisonous chemicals? Seeing as she had not yet been judged a danger to herself or others and its rather impossible for her to access her guns while detained at the mental health ward, there was no overriding need to further violate her right to privacy or her RKBA. If she was released as no threat, well, her home at least would still have been intact. And if she had been deemed a danger, then the police would have cause to obtain a warrant to remove the weapons at their leisure while she is treated.
