Oregon Passes GOP Senator’s Bill Allowing Gun Seizure Order Without Gun Owner’s Knowledge

RINO Brian Boquist

Outrageous.

From Breitbart: Oregon lawmakers passed legislation co-sponsored by Sen. Brian Boquist (R-Dallas) that allows a judge to issue an ex parte ruling for the confiscation of an individual’s firearms.

The bill is SB 719, and it has now passed Oregon’s House and Senate. 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.

NRA-ILA reports:

Based on a California law enacted in 2014, SB 719A would create a so-called “Extreme Risk Protection Order” (ERPO) that 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.

The ex parte aspect of the law means the bill does not require the gun owner to be present for part of the hearing in which the judge decides whether guns should be taken from him.

On April 18, 2017, Breitbart News reported that Boquist was pushing this confiscation bill, and he emailed Breitbart News to suggest the bill simply puts forward a law that is popular in other gun-control states. For example, Boquist informed Breitbart News that a similar law “passed the voters in Washington by 70%.”

Boquist also told Breitbart News that SB 719 “is not confiscation.” However, the language of SB 719 is quite confiscatory. It says:

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, then what is?

The Times quoted Boquist’s defense of the confiscatory bill on the Senate floor, saying, “Everyone wants to promote this as a gun bill. It’s not.”

  2. If it is unconstitutional, it’s null and should not even be submitted, let alone accepted, discussed, voted on or passed! I am sure that other than the usual meaning, RINO also means what we all think when it comes to inanity like this:

    Retarded Idiots? No, Obviosuly!

  7. “Everyone wants to promote this as a gun bill. It’s not.”
    How does he figure THAT? It confiscates a person’s LEGALLY OWNED weapons without due process of the law. If THAT isn’t a gun bill,WHAT IS?
    I want to see his proof that “other States have su8pported similar laws.”
    I think he needs to READ the Second Amendment and try to find where it authorizes anyone to do that.

    • ONE thing is that the Feds have an UNLIMITED budget to blow on Court challenges. That’s how they get away with it. How can Joe Average Citizen challenge a Constitutional violation like that without also having unlimited funds to throw into the fight? The Feds will just bury you in paperwork and delays until you run out of money-problem “solved”. I know how that game is played-a good friend of mine shoveled everything she owned into a case against a corrupt local Government;they kept getting continuances,got a change of venue that made her have to drive 600 miles each way to appear in Court and kept hiring MORE Attorneys. (She had considerable legal skills and was representing herself. When she decided she needed the help of a more experienced Attorney,she learned that every Attorney within reach had already been hired by the Government,though none that she had approached ever appeared in Court…) She kept fighting until she’d spent everything she had,couldn’t borrow any more and had nothing left to sell.

      • Agree, truck, w/all you said, including your example of your friend. So sorry for her. What will it take to reverse these rulings? Sadly…it will take people from whom ammendment rights were “stolen” by
        State/Fed laws & who were killed by intruders/assaulters/etc etc…These survivors’ file cases will reach the Supreme Court one of these days…..

        IT USED TO BE in ALL COURTS of the USA that, if you were the complainant…it was up to you to prove your case b/c the “charged” and opposite party was presumed innocent until YOU proved your case against them….But, in these days, it seems that, if you are charged..you are NOT innocent until found guilty..YOU ARE GUILTY unless you can prove innocence(sadly, against those unlimited Fed or State “continuances” designed to wear you down/use up your financial resources until you cry “uncle”)…..total turnaround in the American justice system!

        • She has since gone to great lengths to become SOVEREIGN-(?) I don’t know a lot about this as her explanations are hard to follow,but essentially,she’s no longer an American Citizen,she has her OWN Domain,which consists of the land she owns;she has NO Constitutional Rights,but doesn’t have to buy plates for her truck,doesn’t have to have a drivers license (she says only a Commercial Driver hauling for profit needs a Drivers License,because he or she is officially a DRIVER,otherwise they’re just operators,who don’t have to have a license to transport themselves and their own belongings down a public road. Please correct me if I have this wrong.) She doesn’t pay any taxes-she seems to be okay with the trade-offs but then she’s always marched to the beat of a different drummer.

  12. They have their marching orders. They will take the guns. The only questions are, how and how long. The recent Bilderberg meeting stressed states and localities refusing to adhere to federal law. A “soft coup”.

    None of these globalists care one whit about the Constitution. Remember Obongo? It hasn’t been that long. He simply banned ammunition under the table. While we should certainly make them follow the law, we should realize that they prefer not to. They don’t work for us.

  13. So far Trump has done a good job of sticking to what We the People are calling for and what’s Constitutional. Let’s hope and pray he finally drags America’s gun ownership klugefest BACK to Constitutional Standards.

  15. Who paid this dirtbag to put forth this “legislation”?
    I doubt he pulled this out of his rear end on his own.
    Yeah, it’s not “confiscation” because you’re ordered to “surrender” and you comply. So you’ve “surrendered” your arms.
    Very double-minded, slick, sneaky, lawyer-think. Hm, lawyers. What did Shakespeare say about lawyers?

  16. “Molon Labe”

    Wikipedia – Molon labe (Greek: μολὼν λαβέ molṑn labé), meaning “come and take [them]”, is a classical expression of defiance. According to Plutarch, Xerxes, king of Persia, demanded that the Spartans surrender their weapons and King Leonidas I responded with this phrase. It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.

    Or

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” Solzhenitsyn
