A major U.S. city is taking the expression, “from my cold, dead hands,” literally.

Buffalo, N.Y., police unveiled a plan to confiscate legally owned guns days after their owners’ death, using an old, rarely enforced state law, Fox News reported.

“We recently started a program where we’re cross-referencing all the pistol permit holders with the death records, and we’re sending people out to collect the guns whenever possible so that they don’t end up in the wrong hands,” Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derrenda` said at a news conference last week, according to WGRZ.com. “At times, they lay out there, and the family is not aware of them and they end up just out on the street.”

Second Amendment advocates are up in arms over the plan.

“They’re quick to say they’re going to take the guns. But they don’t tell you the law doesn’t apply to long guns, or that these families can sell the pistol or apply to keep it,” Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, told Fox News.
