This proposed law raises a lot of questions. I do not have the answers. In this case, I am just posting.
ALERT: California Dems want
"Gun Violence Restraining Order"
According to the Sacramento Bee, "[Assemblymembers] Das Williams of Santa Barbara and Nancy Skinner of Berkeley announced they will introduce a bill that would allow concerned family members or friends to notify authorities when a loved one is at risk of committing violence."
- Do you really think their bill will respect our Second Amendment gun rights, due process, or privacy? Can you imagine what might happen to law-abiding gun owners with anti-gun family or friends?!
Senator Steinberg, best known for authoring 2013's SB 374 semi-auto ban, told the Bee that the Isla Vista tragedy creates new urgency for a conversation about passing more gun control.
- "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." - Rahm Emanuel
In her May 26 L.A. Times op-ed, Dr. Renée Binder said that "[i]t's impossible to know" if a "Gun Violence Restraining Order law" (such as she's proposed) would have prevented the Isla Vista killings, but also that "[e]nacting such a restraining order would be the next step in what is already a proud legacy" of gun control in California.
- Anti-gun extremists don't care about anything but passing more gun control laws. It doesn't matter to them if the laws actually solve problems or create new ones. Your fundamental rights aren't even a consideration.
