A Democrat has introduced a bill in California that would pretty much empower anyone to prevent anyone else from purchasing or owning a firearm. From KEYT TV:
Williams said AB1014 works like a gun violence restraining order. It would allow parents, spouses and others to ask a court judge to prevent a loved one from purchasing a gun if they are deemed a threat to themselves or others.
Under the proposed law, California gun owners could face a loss of their Second Amendment gun rights and confiscation of their firearms without prior warning. The proposed law allows the government up to two weeks following the issuance of a restraining order to set a hearing in which the subject of the order could argue for the reinstatement of their Second Amendment rights and return of any firearms seized.
â€śAB 1014 is a gun control nightmare,â€ť said Brandon Combs, president of CAL-FFL. â€śCalifornia Democrats are taking their radical anti-gun agenda to an entirely new and horrifying level.â€ť … â€śThe subject of a restraining order and confiscation warrant may not even know they have been accused until thereâ€™s a SWAT team at their door.â€ť
According to the billâ€™s text, courts would be required to issue a restraining order if a person -â€“ who doesnâ€™t even have to know the target of the order -â€“ submits a form saying that a gun owner â€śposes a significant risk of personal injury to himself, herself, or others by owning or possessingâ€ť guns.
You’ve heard of SWATTING? This could be worse. Anyone, some angry liberal who doesn’t like something you said or wrote, could get the “restraining order” on just his say-so, and it’s up to you to prove you’re not a risk.
Meanwhile, CA Senator Barbara Boxer is proposing something similar at the national level.
