Posted on 08/24/2017 11:22:28 AM PDT by CodeToad
Creates process for obtaining extreme risk protection order prohibiting person from possessing deadly weapon when court finds that person presents risk in near future, including imminent risk, of suicide or causing injury to another person.
Text of Bill 219
This is weapons confiscation by degree but using a simple witness to do it. Anyone can swear out a complaint and provide any level of statement such as, "I thought he was going to hurt me", or, "He posted on the Internet something I thought was violent". The bar is extremely low on this bill.
I found this from your twitter feed. Thought I’d post it.
twitter feed......izzat like bird seed?................
Turn this on them. Swear out complaints (or whatever they want to call it) against scads of liberals. Clog the courts with this stuff. Make them live by their own rules.
“causing injury to another person.”
as written, it excludes anyone who feels that he has the right to self-defense, even if it requires deadly force, (I do) and police officers. To correct it, it needs the clause “except in lawful self-defense and for LEO’s in the lawful carrying-out of their duties.”
But the intention is to prevent non-violent people from protecting themselves and to arrest cops for doing their job.
bird seed for bird brains
“Turn this on them. Swear out complaints (or whatever they want to call it) against scads of liberals. Clog the courts with this stuff. Make them live by their own rules.”
Exactly. Read some violence posted on FB, Twitter, etc., from a liberal, swear out a complaint.
Hear a professor talk of violence against Trump or others, swear out a complaint.
Got a liberal neighbor with a big mouth, swear out a complaint.
Movie 'Minority Report,' In a future where a special police unit is able to arrest murderers before they commit their crimes, an officer from that unit is himself accused of a future murder. IMDb.com
“Violent” = Raising your voice for emphasis.
If you think I’m kidding you’re not paying attention.
I know that will happen. Liberals scream and shout but to shout back is ‘violence”.
It’s your fault for deflecting their emotional response with facts, logic, and reason.
Since Trump’s election it is my opinion that almost every liberal I know is either suicidal or a member of a radical group intent on committing violence. This law should be used to strip all of them of their arms, asap.
This is what happened in Canada.
They created a "Human Rights Commission," which was taken over by Koranimals, who made life hell for a few Canadian residents and citizens for over a decade... until it was recently disbanded.
Be very, very careful what you wish for!!!
“Its your fault for deflecting their emotional response with facts, logic, and reason.”
I know. I’m kind of terrible that way. I guess someone would turn me in for it if I lived in that liberal rathole State.
CodeToad wrote: “This bill provides that anyone can swear out a complaint that another person might be or might become violent in any way and a court can require them to surrender their weapons; any and all weapons, kitchen knives, firearms, sharp sticks, etc.
No, it doesn’t provide “that anyone” can swear out a complaint. Read the bill which limits those who can swear out a complaint to “A law enforcement officer or a family or household member of a person”.
That’s anybody; meaning you don’t need to have any special certifications. It did not necessarily mean any stranger to another.
Brilliant. Make a list of every elected official. Gather your friends. Have them each pick an official and swear out a complaint. Hoist them by their own petards.
