2,000 Guns Confiscated Under Conn. Seizure LawHARTFORD, Conn. (AP) ― Police in Connecticut say they've now seized more than 2,000 firearms under a 1999 law that allows authorities to confiscate guns from people they suspect might harm themselves or others.

A report prepared for the state legislature says state and local police seized 2,093 guns from October 1999 to May 2009.

Seymour police used the law last year to take three guns away from a local man after his co-workers reported that he threatened to blow up his workplace. Police searched his computer and discovered he visited Web sites dealing with murders, violence and workplace shootings.

The gun seizure law was passed a year after a disgruntled Connecticut Lottery worker shot four top lottery officials and himself to death at the agency.
