CA: Proposed Gun Confiscation

Well this will come as no surprise. After the nut case in Santa Barbara, CA went on a murder and mayhem spree Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), together with Representative Lois Capps (D-CA-Santa Barbara) are pushing through new legislation entitled “The Pause for Safety Act”. This would allow families to petition a court to bar “dangerous” an individual from buying a gun and confiscate any guns said individual owns.

Nothing new here, as Rahm Emanuel said “Never let a crisis go to waste” and Senators Boxer and Feinstein are no strangers to this rule. This was an opportunity for them to drive home their vehement anti-gun beliefs no matter the facts. This nut first murdered three with a knife; three with a gun and then using his car as a weapon struck people while driving and discharging his gun wildly through the streets wounding many others.  In the end he was found in his crashed vehicle with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

You don’t see them trying to ban or confiscate knives or cars? No of course not!

The Pause for Safety Act – will include the following provisions:

• One, it would help ensure that families and others can go to court and seek a gun violence prevention order to temporarily stop someone close to them who poses a danger to themselves or others from purchasing a firearm.
• Two, it would help ensure that families and others can also seek a gun violence prevention warrant that would allow law enforcement to take temporary possession of firearms that have already been purchased if a court determines that the individual poses a threat to themselves or others.
• Three, it would help ensure that law enforcement makes full use of all existing gun registries when assessing a tip, warning or request from a concerned family member or other close associate.

One of the issues I see, and it’s been mentioned in a number of articles out here is that someone could claim they believe an individual is about to commit a crime and then send a SWAT team of officers to their door to confiscate their guns…All in the name of “Safety”. So if an angry spouse, anti-gun neighbor, or any gun control activist choses to target you they can. Let’s hope this legislation fails to get the traction they are looking for.
