Gun owners in Oregon are furious after Democrat lawmakers just passed a massive gun confiscation bill.
Breitbart reported that the bill, which is sponsored by Sen. Brian Boquist (R-Dallas), allows a judge to issue an ex parte ruling for the confiscation of an individual’s firearms.
The SB 719 bill has now passed Oregon’s House and Senate, and it creates an Extreme Risk Protection Order, which forces the subject of the order to hand over all firearms, as well as his concealed carry permit if he possesses one.
This ERPO could be obtained by a law enforcement officer, family member, or household member in an ex parte hearing to deprive someone of their Second Amendment rights without due process of the law.
Though Boquist has argued that his bill “is not confiscation,” the language of SB 719 says differently:
“Requires court to order respondent to surrender deadly weapons and concealed handgun license within 24 hours of service of initial order, and immediately upon service of continued or renewed order. Provides for law enforcement officer serving order to request immediate surrender of deadly weapons and concealed handgun license and authorizes law enforcement officer to take possession of surrendered items.”
If a requirement for “immediate surrender” of firearms and concealed carry license upon issue of an ex parte ruling is not confiscation, I don’t know what is!
