Exclusive: New York Judge Issues Red Flag-Style Gun Confiscation a Full Month Before the Law Takes Effect

A former town judge in New York has been the victim of a personally and politically motivated gun confiscation scheme a full month before the state’s new red flag law is set to take effect, according to the judge’s lawyers at 2AWNY.

Law enforcement in Allegany County seized the firearms belonging to former Town of Allen Justice Bridgette A. Tojek after County Court Judge Thomas P. Brown suspended her license to own a handgun pending an upcoming hearing on July 31.

Tojek’s attorneys at the western New York gun-rights group 2AWNY released a statement arguing that the judge’s actions were prompted by personal and political animus rather than any valid disqualifying behavior.

“They leveraged red flag-style gun confiscation for the purposes of personal retribution,” 2AWNY’s Steve Felano told GunsAmerica. “They dislike her socially and politically, and the fact that she owns guns makes her a target.”

Tojek’s firearms were confiscated after a single member of the Allegany County Board submitted an ex parte affidavit requesting Tojek’s pistol license be suspended. Felano said the board member had a personal grudge against Tojek after the former justice said disparaging things about the board member in public.

An Allegany County Judge, Terrence M. Parker, also claimed that Tojek “continually disparaged me and my family publicly in her Court and in Town meetings.” Judge Parker asked Judge Brown to review Tojek’s pistol permit application because he “would have a predisposition to deny her application.”

Judge Parker made that request in April of last year; fifteen months later, Judge Brown suspended Tojek’s license and seized her firearms.

As a motivation for Judge Brown’s decision, Felano also mentioned an incident involving Judge Parker’s son, who was cited for a traffic violation but didn’t show up to his court date. When Tojek levied the full penalty on Judge Parker’s son, Felano claims, the judge wasn’t happy.

“She didn’t play by the good-ol’-boy’s rules and dismiss the ticket based on nepotism or familiar relations,” Felano said.

Judge Brown hasn’t provided any further rationale for his decision. In a letter to Tojek, Brown simply stated the time and place of the hearing and that the court would not provide her with a lawyer. He may have left one clue as to his court’s thought process, however, when he asked Tojek to bring “any documents with you that would aid the court in deciding this matter, such as mental health evaluations, etc.”

GunsAmerica contacted Judge Brown’s office but was rerouted to the Public Information Division of New York’s court system. Director of Public Information Lucian Chalfen said that Judge Brown cannot comment on this case since it is a pending matter in his court.

“This hearing, however,” Chalfen said, “stems from New York State Town and Village Justice Bridgette Tojek’s being relieved from her judicial duties by the Deputy Chief Administrative Judge who supervises all judges outside of New York City because of her behavior on the bench.”

Chalfen did not elaborate on Tojek’s actions, but asserted that Tojek will have “full due process rights at the hearing, that would include her lawyer being able to call witnesses and state her case to the Judge.”

This “due process,” of course, will happen after Tojek’s firearms have already been taken away.

Felano clarified that Judge Brown didn’t actually cite New York’s new red flag law as justification for the seizure, but the judge’s seize-the-guns-now-ask-questions-later strategy will soon be enshrined in New York state law – and other states should take notice. Especially in states with “may issue” permitting requirements, red flag laws are ripe for abuse.

“You see all the hallmarks of red flag laws happening here before the thing is even active, and it should be a wake-up call for people in New York State and all across the country,” Felano said. “In states with these ‘may issue’ pistol permitting systems, red flag type confiscation has been happening for a long time, but no one’s been aware of it and it hasn’t been as easy. But now it’s going to be very easy [in New York] because these unconstitutional means of confiscation will become enshrined in law in August.”

“I, along with other Second Amendment advocates, have pointed out that this type of gun confiscation will be abused by people who want to punish their enemies. And here you have a situation as a case in point of that very thing,” Felano concluded.

Tojek’s case also shows the constitutional liabilities of New York’s pistol permit requirement.

“Judge Terrance admits in his letter that Ms. Tojek’s protected First Amendment actions would sway his judgment in granting or denying a permit,” Felano argued.

“As you can see here, we have one single judge acting in an administrative capacity who has the total power to suspend or give full force to someone’s Second Amendment constitutional rights, and is allowing a personal matter to affect that.”

2AWNY is a “force multiplier” for the numerous gun-rights groups operating in western New York, Felano said. It handles media relations and conducts policy analysis for all the groups, but most of its activity involves working with liberty-minded attorneys to sue the state over anti-gun policies, including the SAFE Act and other gun-control edicts like the red flag law.

Felano co-founded the group with fellow attorney Jim Ostrowski because he saw a need for the various pro-gun groups to unify.

“Western New York is a Second Amendment stronghold for the state, but every apparatus in state government is controlled by far-left autocratic legislators,” he said. “I saw a need for some unity in the movement, specifically in the 17 counties that make up western New York.”

Tojek’s hearing will take place on July 31 at 10:00 a.m. at the Allegany County Court House. 2AWNY encourages all Second Amendment supporters to attend, and there will be a press conference following.

    This shall NOT be the first! They cannot stop or control SWATTING and false claims from vindictive spouses obtaining “Orders of Protection”, so how are they going to control false claims under Red Flag laws? BTW once the guns are seized and the subject person is cleared, he must enter ANOTHER application for court order for the return of his guns!

  • Barry July 29, 2019, 11:52 am

    Yet another reason I left NY and then NJ for the free state of Pennsylvania; where America begins.

    This has been a long-term plan to disarm the country. Most think the 2nd amendment concerns personal defense against bad guys…read it again, it’s a citizens protection against a tyrannical federal government; sort of what we have now.

    To pull this before the \”law \”takes effect, is illegal, and better end up with a lawsuit against the \”judge\”. SCOUS needs to rule against these totally unconstitutional red flag laws! Those of us who have brains and common sense,knew that massive abuse by the FASCIST,Democrats,would happen. This \”judge \”and any more like him, need to be stripped of their position\’s and tried for TREASON! They also swore an oath to defend the constitution, and need to be held accountable for breaking that sacred promise they swore to. If this isn\’t stopped right now, I predict that a lot of bad things will happen.

  • I Love Liberty July 27, 2019, 6:22 pm

    These red flag laws are nothing more than legal gun confiscation orders. They violate American citizen’s rights that live in one of these states where these laws are in effect. It also violates the 6th, 5th and 2nd Amendments in the Bill of Rights.

    There is no Second Amendment in New York anymore and that also goes for New Jersey, Massachusetts, California and about ten other states.

    Florida citizens are also having their guns confiscated in certain counties. I read that over one hundred Florida citizens now have had their firearms taken under the tyranny of these red flag laws.

  • pete July 27, 2019, 4:00 pm

    Study critical thinking. If this ‘news letter’ even made a gesture towards being balanced or fair it would also report all the times guns have been taken away or kept out of the hands of all those crazies who should clearly not have access to firearms. But No, that would not fit with the constant ‘gun grabbers!’ drum beat.

    • Michael March 20, 2020, 1:20 pm

      Whmm – I seem to recall the shooter at the Parkland High School had been reported numerous times to the local police and Sheriff’s Department (along with the regional FBI Office who apparently sat on their hands and did nothing). Additionally, that individual had numerous “contacts” with the local police. The individual was clearly a problem, but in spite of the highly touted, “See something, say something” nothing was ever done to address this individual’s apparent anti-social, mentally ill ideations.

  • Vinny July 27, 2019, 10:45 am

    This opens the door to massive abuse of power.
    They have essentially left this judge vulnerable to any Criminal she has previously convicted. This sets a bad precedent in which a judicial body can just decide to rule unconstitutionally on any given day

  • Jay E. Simkin July 27, 2019, 5:37 am

    “If the claim is unfounded …” NOT SO!!!! To prove to a Court that the claim is unfounded will cost tens of thousands of dollars in an attorney’s fees and costs. Very few can afford to write those checks.

    It took me 3.5 years and a low six-digit sum to recoup a wrongly-revoked Massachusetts license to carry firearms. I did not get back even a penny of that amount.

  • RayJN July 27, 2019, 3:28 am

    I had read this a long time ago and vaguely. The color of law statue is criminal, which would be had to get any case to court. If they were convicted under the Color of Law, that would be a basis for a civil suit. I don’t know if you could even get to court based solely on the civil suit.

    Judges in particular have a need to be armed for the remainder of their lives because in the course of their working lives they anger a good many people who have no better sense than to act in an antisocial manner, hence their need to be taken before a judge.

  • Kevin McCarthy July 26, 2019, 3:38 pm

    But, but, if it will save the life of just one child over the course of several hundred years – isn’t it worth the small loss of civil rights? I so hate the East Coast – its why I moved to Alaska.

    I cannot think of a more deserving person to carry a concealed pistol than a woman who is both politically active and has controversial views. Even if I disagree with her politics 100% – she needs that right.

  • Nathan July 26, 2019, 2:29 pm

    It’s really unsettling to see how easily people put blinders on. “Obama=bad, Trump=good” Just because you put an R in front of your name does NOT mean you support the 2A. Trump is in truth a New York Elite. He advocates for no one, but himself. He supports MANY, including this one, erroneous attempts at gun legislation. Can someone please tell me of one LAW, not executive order which means squat, that Obama put into effect that ACTUALLY restricted our rights? Look here and you’ll see he did just enough to please the anti-gunners in his base. http://www.ncsl.org/research/civil-and-criminal-justice/summary-president-obama-gun-proposals.aspx I find it hard to believe that any reasonable person would read the things on this list and not find them reasonable. Many others would have tried for another “assault weapons ban”, he did not. Trump IS a perfect example of why we need the 2A and it pains me to see gun owners who think he has your well being in mind just, because he’s on “your team”, which he’s not. He has no team and if he did it wouldn’t be red or blue. It’d be green, because money and power are all he cares about.

  • Stuart Nuss July 26, 2019, 11:55 am

    I wonder if filing a counter-suit under the “color of law” statutes would stop frivolous use of these laws. The accusers could be found civilly liable of violating the rights of the accused. https://www.justice.gov/crt/deprivation-rights-under-color-law

    • Nathan July 26, 2019, 2:37 pm

      It’s certainly seems like a possibility, but getting someone to go through that process is the hard part. Anything dealing with the courts is stressful and costly. Understandably why we don’t see people challenging the NFA for being ill conceived and out of date. Red flag laws, like most, sound good in theory, but the unintended consequences are very real, as the judge has seen.

  • Jim July 26, 2019, 11:41 am

    This appears to be a direct violation of the 2nd Amendment! Just because someone, a Judge no less, has a differing opinion than another Judge wo is politically opposed to her, is NOT a good reason to disqualify her from owning and possessing a firearm. This woman has not threatened this other Judge nor indicated she wished the other person any harm. She was a duly appointed Judge at one time and has done nothing to lose the faith of the citizens of NY, just is opposed to the current sitting Judge. This cannot stand. If this was the deciding factor for owning and possessing a firearm I, and millions of other owners of firearms, would have lost our right to own firearms when Obama was in office and have them re-instated when Trump was elected and then Trump could have rescinded the Democrats right to possess firearms. That is simply stupid and wrong in so many ways.

    Some of these comments really bother me. I am old. I’ve seen too much combat…50 years ago. I want to live out my remaining years in peace. Yes,we are in a fight, but that fight needs to be in the education/political arena. We MUST educate others on the path we are heading down and the danger it poses to ALL the people. THAT is the fight we must fight to the bitter end.

    • Brian July 26, 2019, 10:56 am

      Sometimes when your are in a fight for your Constitutional rights merely trying to discuss the issue with your sworn enemies will get you no where. I too am older and have seen war but I will not surrender my rights to those who would put me under their yoke. Two of my forefathers refused to live under King George’s tyranny and one was already a grandfather when the Revolution began.

    • Gourdhead July 26, 2019, 11:24 am

      I am with you as having had plenty of combat over fifty years ago and also would like to live the rest of my life in peace, but this crap needs to be stopped. I am afraid that our education system has had it’s way far too long with the current generation filling their heads full of this crap. I don’t think education will salvage the situation. We may very well have to fight one more time before we depart this life. In my mind, it is the right thing to do when the SHTF.

    • Eric Holder July 26, 2019, 11:34 am

      99.9999 percent of gun owners want peace and boy do they bow down to every new gun restriction that comes down the road no matter how unconstitutional they are. There are a lot of people trying to get Americans to “wake up”, awareness etc. but knowing a train is going to hit you is of no value unless you get off the tracks.

        There you go again, bringing up facts and such. Do you think with the level of confirmation bias, motivated reasoning, and lack of critical thinking generally apparent on both the right and left, that anyone is going to care about facts? 🙂
        Dit is actually talking about Trump as a “Benevolent Billionaire ” for God’s sake.

        This is why it’s so hard to be taken seriously when you try and argue any pro-2A positions with anyone. They automatically assume everything you say is made up BS.

        And anyone who thinks we can win the 2A fight without getting support from at least some of those in the middle is naive; the numbers and demographics are against us. Gerrymandering and voter suppression will not get the job done.

    The former Judge is always at risk of retribution of those previously sentenced. Without the license she is at risk of life.
    If someone says disparaging remarks about you and it is NOT slander, then there is no reason to proceed.
    It is illegal to confiscate weapons PRIOR to the law being enacted.
    There is grounds for civil litigation in this case.

  • Jay E. Simkin July 26, 2019, 9:29 am

    “Gun control” is bad for all law-abiding persons, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, etc. Hollow-point ammunition is freely-available, unless state law prohibits it as do, for example the laws of New Jersey, a sewer state, with very nasty and repressive laws concerning firearms.

    The vast majority of immigrants, lawful or otherwise, seek to better themselves. We need to control immigration, to keep out gangsters and similar. We also have limited capacity to absorb new arrivals.

    The vast majority of those, who seek to enter the US, do so because they want to improve their lot in life. They are NOT asylum-seekers. One, who seeks asylum, is in lethal peril if they stay in their country of birth and/or residence. Once an asylum-seeker crosses a frontier, and so enters a country wherein s/he is not in lethal peril, s/he has asylum.

    Backers of “red flag” laws likely know that the average person cannot afford to pay a lawyer to recover seized firearms. The cost is likely to be several tens of thousands of dollars. As a practical matter for the average person, seized firearms are gone. Forever.

    A “red flag” bill – that does not provide for tax-payer-funded reimbursement of legal expenses incurred by an accused (at their attorney’s usual hourly rate) – is, therefore, a gun confiscation enactment.

    Only the rich can afford to take-on the State. Most think a single hearing will suffice. Even if that were true – and it is NOT – a lawyer would need tens of hours to prepare for that hearing. The lawyer might need to hire experts to testify. Most attorneys will charge $300-400 per hour. An expert might require $5,000-10,000 to prepare for an hour on the witness stand.

    Further, because wholly false allegations can be made, a “red flag” bill must include a right of private action. This means a person – falsely accused – can hire a lawyer to prosecute a perjurer, should a prosecutor decline to do so. In fact, few perjurers are prosecuted. A “right of private action” provision will deter some, who might lie to a Court.

    All “red flag” bills share a common and lethal defect. These bills’ framers presume that someone bent on evil can’t replace seized firearms. This is nonsense!

    At end-2017, there were some 402,000,000 firearms in the U.S., excluding military-owned items. See US Dept. of Justice, “Firearms Commerce in the United States”2000 and 2017. Things so abundant – and concealable – can’t be controlled. The effort is foredoomed.

    While one named in a “protective order”can’t buy firearms from a dealer, said person – if determined to harm someone innocent – can buy guns from criminals.

    Thus, “red flag” bills’ promises of “protection” are simply fraudulent. These bills put many at risk of losing their firearms, without providing any protection to a person, who truly faces lethal peril.

    I wish I had a dime for every time I heard anti-rights activists say “no one is trying to take your guns.” BS. That is exactly the ultimate goal. The means is to enact a steady stream of increasingly arbitrary and draconian gun laws. Each new law is proclaimed to be a “common sense” measure but in reality it is part of the death by a thousand cuts strategy to end private ownership of guns.

I just don’t understand how they think that when services are denied to white people will benefit those of color but it has got to stop ,most of the people are worked to death and getting nowere including whites! This country was founded by whites they need to go to work and gain respect those that use the system! Whites will no longer carry lazy people that think we owe them a living when we can’t even get help when we need it! Whites don’t get help like those of color and we were told we weren’t the right color to help! I swore up and down tha I wouldn’t pay taxes to be used by illegals that were here to use our money to make a living without paying taxes and sending their money to their countries instead!

    The people of the USA are not as principled as they were in the olden days of 16th, 17, 18, 19, centuries.
    We the people, back then, faced natural predators, hunger, bullies, and ultimately a tyrannical colonial rule.
    The free and armed people of the colonies rose up with muskets to repel the unjust British rule, more than that, firearms were used for food gathering, family and property protections. What has changed over the past 4 centuries in this land? Well, less principled people are more among us. No respect for the law, no respect for the right to personal freedoms, no respect for hard work to live peaceably among all, in other words, the caliber of people have changed greatly. These are the people who think that the realities of the times dictates the law and the law must be changed to meet that reality. What does it mean to a man like me who grew up loving this great nation? I will defend it from enemies within and from any enemies outside our borders. I will not let politicians dictate to me what my right are. For me, the US Constitution must not be changed to meet the needs of a minority, be it a Stare, judge or any entity, When changes by the majority disagrees with my principles, I will either give up or leave this land. Otherwise, I intend to stay put and fight to preserve my rights along with like minded people of this great nation. I hold our constitutional rights sacred, and I am proud of it. The implements of firearms are a greatest equalizer of personal freedoms. I believe that was the intention of the 2nd amendment.

    Sadly it is the voting scum and corruption in NYC that is controlling the outcome for the rest of the state.

    So the judge has to prove they are not insane… spend money on a psych evaluation to get their own constitutionally protected property back… and what shrink doctor is going to want to sign a paper like that based on 1 session? So one lay person has the power to say you’re crazy and they confiscate our property, that’s some messed up shite.. the real scary part is the corrupt cops carrying out theses draconian orders

    Any so called judge that abuses their power should be immediately suspended without any compensation, all firearms confiscated, fined $25000.00 dollars, restricted from practicing law and restricted from ever owning a firearm in the future. All citizens who abuse any red flag law should have a mandatory 2 year jail term fined $10000.00 dollars and lose their right to own a firearm forever! That ship can sail both ways and if the punishment for abusing laws are used they will hopefully prevent some of this BS!

    Agreed Pat..

  • George July 26, 2019, 7:53 am

    New York/Mexifornia/Illinois have proven what a Democrat run Government will be like. The left is “All About Power” taxes, & 100% evil.

  • Alan July 26, 2019, 7:19 am

    If a gun law can be abused you can bet the Peoples Republics of NY and NJ will do so.

  • Will Beararms July 26, 2019, 6:51 am

    The people of New York are getting the the government they voted for. As long as their politicians do not interfere with the 2nd Amendment rights of those of us who live in Free America, all is good. New Yorkers have made the decision to be servile subjects instead of citizens. It’s their call, sadly.

  • Pat July 26, 2019, 6:45 am

    Start stacking the bodies of the treasonous politicians, judges, and those who enforce these laws. They will bring war to your doorstep so it’s long past time for us to return the favor. Quit bitching and whining on the internet, get off you fat fucking asses and make these bolshevik vermin afraid as our founders intended.

  • nathan monroe July 26, 2019, 6:16 am

    Amen Brother! I don’t know what it’s going to take to get people to wake up to what is taking place within our country as it concerns our rights and freedoms. Disarm me so you can harm me. It’s that simple.

  • Mike July 26, 2019, 6:00 am

    It is too late…………

  • MAX PARSANLAL July 26, 2019, 5:39 am

    All 2nd amendment folks that live in that POS state of New Stalingrad needs to move to states that support our 2nd amendment rights!!!To the judge who suspended her rights to own and possess a firearm”Yuh Mudda cunt” and to all the anti gunners in that state “Yuh Mudda cunt”

  • Lon J Loren July 26, 2019, 5:33 am

    This nonsense has been going on in NY forever and getting worse. I have left NY for good. Happy in Texas.

  • John July 26, 2019, 3:17 am

    We, gun owners, knew this would happen. But not by a judge. This is just the beginning with this shit, and it will get worse, blood both citizen and Leo, will be spilled, and people are going to die. I can see a civil war in the not to distant future happening. The governments in these states are going to continue until they get physical push back from the American people. If they are looking to start a shooting war, this is how it will begin. A snake will leave you alone until you back it into a corner and this is what is going to happen with the American citizen. They, the government are going to back gun owners into a corner with these unconstitutional laws, and you will leave people no choice but to fight or flight. The majority will fight. I know I would if confronted by law enforcement to take my God given rights to own a firearm. You have 18.5 million veterans, and most can walk into combat tomorrow, and law enforcement does not want to see such a formidable force get pissed off as we outnumber all combined law enforcement plus the military in this country. The govenments are opening up a can of worms that will be the death of some very good people. The Leo’s across this country if they are in a red flag state, should refuse to enforce this law, as it is an unconstitutional law. I don’t think they want to die for such a law. But if they do decide to enforce these laws, there is one thing they had better bring with them, and that is a good supply of body bags.

    They are all out to lunch in NY!

  • Jaque July 25, 2019, 9:20 pm

    I think its already too late.

  • Nicks87 July 25, 2019, 4:33 pm

    Maybe just stop following the law. The US congress is illegitimate, the corporations and tech companies own all the media and Hollywood, people’s guns are being confiscated without due process, so what’s next? Re-Education camps? Gas Chambers? What? How long are we going to wait? Why am I reading this on GunsAmerica and not CNN, Fox, MSNBC, etc? Wake up people, before it’s too late.

    • Nathan July 26, 2019, 2:42 pm

      Gas chambers? Really? That’s one hell of a leap your taking. Brace yourself for the landing.🤪
