Oregon Gov. Kate Brown on Wednesday signed a bill into law that will allow confiscation of privately owned firearms without due process of the law.
According to NRA-ILA, the so-called “Extreme Risk Protection Order” 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.
This ex parte order, which strips the accused of their Second Amendment rights, will be issued by a judge based on the brief statement of the petitioner. The accused will not be afforded the chance to appear in court to defend themselves against the allegations when the ERPO is issued. Worse, these orders may be issued without any allegations of criminal behavior.
