California Legislation To Expand Secret Gun Confiscations Moving Forward In Sacramento

posted on April 29, 2016

Legislation advanced to the California Assembly floor Wednesday that would expand secret “Gun Violence Restraining Order” confiscations by allowing not just family members and police—but also employers, co-workers, teachers and others—to petition courts to impose confiscation. 

Under a law that took effect this year, family members and peace officers in California can petition courts to restrain individuals from possessing firearms—without evidence of wrongdoing or even the knowledge of the person affected, thus depriving that person of due process—if they say the person poses a threat. Assembly Bill 2607, introduced by San Francisco Democrat Phil Ting, would expand the list of those eligible to petition courts to include employers, co-workers, teachers and school employees.

California residents should contact their Assembly member in Sacramento and urge them to defend due process—and reject the denial of rights based on hearsay—by voting NO on AB2607. To find your Assembly member, click here.
