CA Heroes Pass Enabling Act To Just Grab Your Gun by eric • July 2, 2014 • 1 Comment
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.
"Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces."
