WEB Notes: I do not know about you, but when there is an “emergency” that is when we all need a firearm the most. To protect us and our families from harm. The state stepping in and taking our arms is not going to help. They will never know about the criminals who have arms. So this is yet another law aimed at the law abiding citizen disguised as some sensible measure. Make a mental note. There are never any sensible gun confiscation laws. They are all meant to remove your right to bear arms.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed into law a bill establishing circumstances under which citizens of that state could be forced to surrender their firearms to government agents.
Section 2 of the new statute (formerly Senate Bill 719) gives power to:
A law enforcement officer or a family or household member of a person may file a petition requesting that the court issue an extreme risk protection order enjoining the person from having in the person’s custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing or receiving, or attempting to purchase or receive, a deadly weapon.
That’s right. File a petition in Oregon and you can disarm a relative or roommate.
