Oregon State Senator Proposes Law That Would Allow Gun Confiscation Without Due Process

California has done it, Illinois is trying to do it, and Oregon may be next. These are the states that have laws, or have attempted to pass laws that make gun confiscation very easy. These laws basically allow any police officer or civilian to ask a court to confiscate the firearms of a family member, if that person may be at risk of suicide or domestic violence. That person doesn’t get to offer any input, nor does their need to be very much evidence that the person in question is dangerous.

The latest proposal comes from Oregon state senator Brian Boquist, whose Navy veteran son committed suicide last year. His bill “would enable immediate family members to obtain a court order to prevent a person showing signs of wanting to commit suicide or hurt others from obtaining a gun for a year.” The order would also force that person to give up all of their firearms.

As with California’s version of this law, this bill allows for ex parte court hearings, which means that the gun owner who is going to have his rights taken away, doesn’t have to be present during the hearing. If someone is subject to this order, they can only contest it once during its 12 month duration.

As you might expect, gun rights activists are outraged. Many of them poured into the state capital building on Monday to protest the bill. NRA spokeswoman Keely Hopkins summed up how dangerous this legislation would be for gun owners: “This bill allows for a protective order to remove your Second Amendment rights, not because of a criminal conviction, but based on third-party allegations using an evidentiary standard that falls far below what’s normally required for the removing of fundamental rights.”

    It appears that these dumb asses believe only extreme liberals willing to kill people need to have guns. (The Criminals).

    Similar to the dumb ass professor painting someone holding trumps head. This is the epitome of stupidity.

    Goes back to STUPID, Stuck on STUPID, and Extreme Stupidity.

    The three states named have a population that seems to be at the Extreme Stupidity level and going even further into the morass of personal desires over common of mankind. Just the OPPOSITE of what America was founded on.

    Since States argue with states to determine the most stupidly managed, would it not be totally legal for the Federal Government to edict that there is a law against STUPIDITY, and STUPID PEOPLE cannot be elected for office holding in a REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT.

    Now that would just piss off these EXTREMELY STUPID State Legislators that believe they have the POWER to dictate to the population.

    Now, to the sorry ass liberals of the world, if you do not like these comments fuck off.

    Take this Brian Boquist out and beat the living crap out of him for 3 or 4 days straight and see if he can learn the rights of the citizens to own guns. Give him an ever-lasting beating he will never forget.

    How stupid, I can’t believe this idiot is a state senator. Absolutely unbelievable that any state senator could ever be that stupid. Every time he opens his mouth, punch that idiot in the face. Nobody in modern day society could be that stupid.

    Well, if Oregonian gun owners are willing to take this, then they deserve it.

    There is the quote from Thomas Jefferson about, the amount of tyranny you are willing to accept is the amount you will get.
