USCCA Continues To Oppose Any Legislative Efforts At The State And Federal Level Aimed At Stripping Americans of Their Second Amendment Rights Without Due Process
West Bend, WI – The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), which provides education, training and self-defense protection to more than
300,000 responsible American gun owners across the country, said today that it will continue to oppose any legislative efforts at the state and federal level that seek to strip law-abiding Americans of their Second Amendment rights without due process.
This comes as anti-gun groups are pressuring lawmakers in a number of states to pass so-called “Red Flag” laws – which are also referred to as Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPOs) – and some have inaccurately suggested the USCCA would support these efforts.
USCCA President and Founder Tim Schmidt said today that the USCCA will continue to stand behind any law-abiding, responsibly-armed American who
faces an unfounded “Red Flag” situation and will oppose legislative efforts that allow for the confiscation of firearms without due process. “We must ensure that dangerous persons with mental illnesses do not have access to firearms, but that cannot come at the expense of allowing our government to target
law-abiding Americans and confiscate their firearms without due process,” Schmidt said today.
“Many of the so-called ‘red flag’ laws under consideration by various states would make it far too easy for bad actors to abuse them and target innocent people. Imagine, for example, losing your right to self-protection simply because someone with an axe to grind against you falsely claims you’re a danger. Many of these legislative proposals are nothing more than backdoor efforts by the anti-gun lobby to strip law-abiding Americans of their God-given right to self-defense, and the USCCA will continue to oppose them.”
Schmidt also noted in a new video that he recorded and shared with USCCA members today that the USCCA has been voicing its serious concern with
“red flag” laws that have been passed by states like California for the last several years now including in a January 2018 message to USCCA members
where he wrote, “Therein lies the ‘extreme risk of ERPOs: relying on feelings to potentially strip an individual of his or her constitutional right to keep and bear arms — all while neglecting due process.”
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California lawmakers are taking steps to let school employees ask judges to temporarily strip gun rights from potentially dangerous people.
The state Assembly passed a bill Monday that would allow school employees and co-workers to request gun violence restraining orders against people who show warning signs of violence.
California is one of a handful of states that already allow immediate family members and police to request such restraining orders.
Democratic lawmakers supporting the bill invoked the Friday shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas that killed 10. Some Republicans say they worry the bill wouldn't give gun owners enough opportunity to defend themselves in court if a restraining order is requested against them.
The bill passed on a 46-23 vote and now heads to the state Senate. (end AP article)
SACRAMENTO, Calif. —
Employers, co-workers and teachers could ask judges to take away guns from people who are deemed a danger to themselves or others under a bill that has cleared the California Senate.
California enacted a so-called "red flag law" that took effect in 2016. But it only allows law enforcement and immediate family members to ask judges for gun restraining orders. Assembly Bill 61 by Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco would expand that law.
Ting introduced the bill in response to a November 2018 mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, where 12 people were killed. The gunman, Ian David Long, had shown signs of instability to family and friends.
Groups advocating gun rights and civil liberties oppose the bill, which still must be approved by the state Assembly.
Red Flag Laws Anti Gunners believe the 2nd Amendment is the only right in the bill of rights that can be stripped from citizens without due process.
They understand the power and influence of the second amendment which basically gives the power to the people. In turn, they come up with laws that create a fake due process to take that right away from people.
Giving good people the security they deserve and yet another reason to worship, educate or do business with you.
