The supreme law of the land is the constitution. So, if the government touches you firearms they broke that constitutional law and they will be subject to that law. Sadly, Oregon does not see it that way! Oregon lawmakers passed a bill that allows them to confiscate the guns from its owners, without their knowledge.
The bill co-sponsored by Sen. Brian Boquist (R-Dallas), is SB 719, has passed Oregon’s House and Senate. However, 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.
“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.”
This means the government can decide to allege things make a ruling against you and you aren’t even given the opportunity to defend yourself or protect your rights. Sound more like tyranny in some third world country than a state in the US.
This flies in the very face of the Consitution and the purpose of the Second Amendment, which was to ensure that the government could never take away your right without Constitutional due process.
That is a constitutional violation, of the 1st through 5th amendments… at the very least. Whatever happened to being able to face your accuser? Fourth Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated…”
Too many people are unfamiliar with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights! They never learned why they were instated, and it shows in their willingness to give them up so easily.
Oregon made a way for taxpayers to fund the slaughter of the unborn. And then they make a law making it legal for them to steal your guns??? And the people in Oregon are okay with it?
If they are not, it’s up to them to stand up and say no!
