AB-1014 Gun violence restraining orders
California’s new gun law takes America down a slippery slope, allowing law enforcement to seize lawful weapons and ammunition for up to 21 days before any action can take place from the rightful owner.
With the new law in place, a restraining order can be issued on a law-abiding citizen based on what someone may consider to be a “threat”, or an individual with a grudge could take advantage of the law. The citizen would have no knowledge of the said restraining order being processed, or the opportunity to defend any allegations in court.
The law allows for almost anyone to place a restraining order on a citizen without due process.
It’s come to the time in America when police can arrive at your door to seize your weapons based on nothing more than one person’s accusations.
The bill authorizes a court to issue a gun violence restraining order prohibiting the subject of the petition from having in his or her custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving, or attempting to purchase or receive, a firearm or ammunition for a period of one year when there is clear and convincing evidence that the subject of the petition, or a person subject to an ex parte gun violence restraining order, as applicable, poses a significant danger of personal injury to himself, herself, or another by having in his or her custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving a firearm and that the order is necessary to prevent personal injury to himself, herself, or another, as specified.
The bill would authorize the renewal of the order for additional one-year periods and would permit the restrained person to request one hearing to terminate the order during the effective period of the initial order or each renewal period.
The bill would require a court, upon issuance of a gun violence restraining order, to order the restrained person to surrender to the local law enforcement agency all firearms and ammunition in his or her custody or control, or which he or she possesses or owns. The bill would require the local law enforcement agency to retain custody of the firearm or firearms and ammunition for the duration of a gun violence restraining order.
