Bill Would Allow Police to Confiscate Guns Based on Accusation Alone

A draconian gun control bill set to be voted on by the California legislature would allow police to confiscate a person’s firearms solely on the basis of an accusation made against the gun owner by a family member or a health professional.

Although the bill was amended after an onslaught of complaints, the legislation is still being labeled as the harshest gun control law in the country.

AB 1014, authored by Assemblymembers Das Williams and Nancy Skinner, would create ‘gun violence restraining orders’ that would allow police to proactively confiscate firearms and hold them for one year with no due process merely based on an accusation made by an immediate family member, a law enforcement officer or a health professional.

“This bill would allow a search warrant to be issued when the property or things to be seized are a firearm or firearms or ammunition that is in the custody or control of, or is owned or possessed by, a person who is the subject of a gun violence restraining order and who is presently known to have in his or her custody and control or possession, or to own a firearm or firearms or ammunition,” states the bill.

The accusation against the individual has to meet the standard of evidence, “to believe that the subject of the petition poses a significant risk of personal injury to himself, herself, or another by having under his or her custody and control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving a firearm,” states the bill, although the nature of this evidence is not properly defined.

  1. Hunter S Thompson on when to dial 911 and invite the police into your life

    No cop was ever born who isn’t a sucker for a finely-executed hi-speed Controlled Drift all the way around one of those clover-leaf freeway interchanges.

    Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side when he sees the big red light behind him… and then we will start apologizing begging for mercy.

    This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop-heart. The thing to do when you’re running along about a hundred or so and you suddenly find a red-flashing CHP-tracker on your trail; what you want to do then – is accelerate.”

    More HST:
    1) Never trust a cop in a raincoat.
    2) Beware of enthusiasm and of love, both are temporary and quick to sway.
    3) If asked if you care about the world’s problems, look deep into the eyes of he who asks, he will never ask you again.
    4) Never give your real name.
    5) If ever asked to look at yourself, don’t look.
    6) Never do anything the person standing in front of you can’t understand.
    7) Never create anything, it will be misinterpreted, it will chain you and follow you for the rest of your life.
