Oregon State Senator Proposes Law That Would Allow Gun Confiscation Without Due Process

California has done it, Illinois is trying to do it, and Oregon may be next. These are the states that have laws, or have attempted to pass laws that make gun confiscation very easy. These laws basically allow any police officer or civilian to ask a court to confiscate the firearms of a family member, if that person may be at risk of suicide or domestic violence. That person doesn’t get to offer any input, nor does their need to be very much evidence that the person in question is dangerous.

The latest proposal comes from Oregon state senator Brian Boquist, whose Navy veteran son committed suicide last year. His bill “would enable immediate family members to obtain a court order to prevent a person showing signs of wanting to commit suicide or hurt others from obtaining a gun for a year.” The order would also force that person to give up all of their firearms.

As with California’s version of this law, this bill allows for ex parte court hearings, which means that the gun owner who is going to have his rights taken away, doesn’t have to be present during the hearing. If someone is subject to this order, they can only contest it once during its 12 month duration.

As you might expect, gun rights activists are outraged. Many of them poured into the state capital building on Monday to protest the bill. NRA spokeswoman Keely Hopkins summed up how dangerous this legislation would be for gun owners: “This bill allows for a protective order to remove your Second Amendment rights, not because of a criminal conviction, but based on third-party allegations using an evidentiary standard that falls far below what’s normally required for the removing of fundamental rights.”

  • I wonder (((why))) this is happening. Hmmmm…

  • jimmy joe

    Disarming is the next phase for a 100% complete police state, and, just for he sheeple that actually think only the democans benefit from a disarmed populace, YOU COULDN’T BE ANY MORE WRONG!!!

    • Sarthurk

      Wrong state to try that in. Trust me. Even in the liberal cesspools like Portland and Eugene. No. This jackass is a moron, but I repeat myself. Boquist is bitter about his sons mental illness, and wants to take it out on everyone else?. FK NO!

      • Phillip J Elliott

        seems boquist is the biggest cause of his sons demise.

      • Why would you think Oregon will not embrace this garbage ?

      • archer

        I was going to ramble on about a town I lived in with a similar problem, but suffice it to say, upbringing could’ve had a detrimental effect on his son’s mental problems.

  • SP_88

    Why are people so easily allowing these anti-gun, anti-American, anti-freedom, gun grabbers to pass such unConstitutional laws without massive outcry from patriotic Americans?
    These are the tiny increments that eventually lead to a totalitarian state where the people have no rights and the state has absolute power and control over the citizens.
    If people won’t fight back now, while they still have the ability to do so, what are they going to do when they are completely disarmed and have no ability to fight back?
    Does everyone think that someone else will do it?
    Wouldn’t it be nice to read an article some day that says a large group of people stood up against the government to demand that they respect our rights, or that they got some terrible law overturned? Well that’s not going to happen unless you do it, and I do it, and we all get involved and get it done. Every little bit counts. But some things are not going to get done unless large numbers of people get involved and make their demands known.
    Only if large numbers of people push back against this tyranny will anything ever change.

    • patriot156

      different but similar there was………. I was called Muheaur Refuge in 2016 when Lavoy Finicum got murdered by the FBI and OSP!
      but yeah I get it.

      • SP_88

        Yes. Different, but similar. They were a bunch of patriots who were exercising their rights, and the government punished them for it.
        And not only were they exercising their rights, but they were fighting against government overreach and abuses of power.
        And people know that if they try to exercise their rights, the government will try to make an example of them so nobody else gets any ideas.
        Most people who believe that they are free, and live in a free country, have never tried to exercise their rights. These are people who never try to go beyond the invisible prison the government has created for us.
        It isn’t until people try to do something the government doesn’t like that there is a problem. Try taking all of your money out of the bank, and suddenly you realize that the government has all sorts of ridiculous laws that make it very difficult or impossible. If you do somehow manage to get a bunch of cash that clearly belongs to you, try driving somewhere with it, and see what happens if you get pulled over by the police. They will confiscate it without due process and you won’t be able to get it back. How free is that.
        Try buying a firearm without permission from the government, something we all have a Constitutional right to do, and the government will punish you for it.
        Try defending yourself or your home from a criminal who doesn’t belong there, who has the intention of hurting or killing you or your family, or, if their intentions are unknown. In some states if you shoot the criminal instead of fleeing your home, you can be charged with manslaughter, murder, or attempted murder. Or, if the criminal is injured, they could sue you for damages, even if they hurt themselves while burglarizing or robbing your home. Doesn’t sound very free to me.
        And I know that it seems like they are protecting the bad guys here, but the truth is they don’t care about them either. This isn’t about protecting the bad guys, it’s about controlling the people. The more dependent people are on the government, the easier it is to control them.

    • Scott Jenner

      Yeah like where is the NRA when you need them?

      • SP_88

        Certainly one of the groups who defend our rights should be on this. Whether it’s the NRA, GOA, or some patriot group really doesn’t matter, as long as someone does something.
        Certainly they can’t just do nothing.

        • dbelton

          And what are YOU doing? Depending upon a group to do something is one of the big problems. Don’t depend on others. Do it yourself!

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            Maybe he doesn’t live in Oregon?

          • SP_88

            I actually don’t. Oregon is much less leftist than the communist cesspool state I live in.
            The state I live in is called the Constitution State. If only.

          • SP_88

            Thinking that you can do it yourself is just as much of a problem as waiting for some group to do it. Even if you have a group of people at your disposal, it’s no guarantee of success.
            Look what happened to the group that took over the wildlife refuge. They were part of a group. And now some of them are in jail and are fighting for their freedom against a very corrupt government, and Mr. Finicum is dead because of some corrupt FBI agents.
            This is not something that I can do by myself. And neither can you, unless we want to get shot by the police or some federal agents, or end up in jail. Not that there is nothing we can do ourselves, but we can’t simply exercise our rights without risking retribution by the government.
            There needs to be highly visible public support and large numbers of people willing to make their presence felt.
            Look at that gun show that traveled the country selling firearms without a background check. They dared law enforcement and the government to stop them, and nothing happened to them. That’s doing something. And showing support for them is doing something.
            And in Connecticut and New York, they passed laws that required anyone with an “assault rifle” to register them with the state. And almost nobody did. It was a big “fuck you” to the state. That is doing something.
            It’s not going to solve everything, but it’s a start. Obviously we need to do more. More people need to openly break these unConstitutional laws and challenge the government to do something about it.
            In Connecticut, they banned so called “assault weapons” to “keep us safe” from…..something. Refusing to register these “assault weapons” is a start. But they are still banned. The next logical step would be to start selling them again, despite what the government says.
            We have a right to own an AR-15 or an AK-47 or any other military weapons. The government has no authority to ban such weapons. None.
            All of these gun control laws are unConstitutional, unnecessary and unenforceable. We need to start a trend of breaking these laws in open defiance of the government.
            Only if large numbers of people participate in this defiance of the government will it have any chance of success. Individuals are too easy for the government to arrest and throw in jail in clear violation of their rights. They’ve done it before, and they’ll do it again.

    • Robert Kahlcke

      Before this would happen there would be a civil war, you can take this to the bank. Remember there is a firearm behind every blade of grass.

      • You are dreaming and living in prepper type fantasy. Oregon is extremely left wing and yes this could happen !

      • SP_88

        There are enough people with firearms in America to more than handle this nonsense. But the problem is getting them to make that first step, that step that crosses the line between “law abiding citizen” and “anti-government domestic terrorist”. Most people aren’t ready to make that leap. Especially if the government has demonstrated that they don’t care about people’s rights, and that they are willing to put people in jail for exercising their rights.
        Less than 1% of the population is enough to change their minds. 1% of the population is 3.2 Million people. That’s a big group of people to show up on the front lawn of the White House to demand an end to these unConstitutional laws and the constant attack on the 2nd amendment.
        There are about 80 – 100 Million gun owners in America. And the government knows that they can’t just take them all on at once. So they are going to go state by state, and make little changes here and there, try to pass a few anti-gun laws a little at a time, and it will go so slow and take so long that people may not notice. It’s the boiling frogs scenario.
        And because of their sneaky tactics, it is our job to bring attention to every little thing they do, and to demand they stop every thing they try to do. It’s a constant battle.

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        Any military commander worth the name knows that he needs a minimum 25% numerical advantage over his opponent to achieve victory. A 50% advantage is better, and a 100% numerical advantage is a virtual guarantee.

        Lawfully-armed American citizens currently enjoy a minimum 3,200% numerical advantage over government forces – including “sworn officers” as well as the military (this numerical advantage may be as high as 3,600%).

    • Anna Housholder

      Because no one will fire them,for breech of oath, that is”to support and defend the constitution which includes our bill of rights.
      Its a criminal cact check out “Title 5 USC section 7311”.
      Its a crime to break there oath of office !

      • SP_88

        Exactly. It’s a criminal act that these politicians get away with every day. They are never held accountable for what is obviously a criminal act.
        How many times have you read an article saying that some politician is being questioned by the FBI or DOJ or some other agency, and you know that they are guilty of something, and you hope that finally one of them is held accountable, but nothing ever comes of it? It happens all the time.

    • Old Wolf

      The fact is, that if you are aware of the law, you know that the law is being ignored. Title 18, section 242, makes it a felony act for any actor, state or federal, acting under the presumed authority of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, in any state, territory, district, or possession, to deprive or cause the deprivation of any right, privilege or immunity guaranteed or protected by the constitution of the United States. This guarantee was an absolute right, including the second amendment rights, inclusive within the fourteenth amendment.
      Of late, there has been a strong movement to reframe the 14th in quite different terms. This is a deliberate, and willful ploy, using useful idiots to attack it, but it was passed to prevent those deprivations, with this specific law in mind.
      Nor may states, or the federal government in any capacity determine those upon whom the law is to be applied. The primary guarantee was for general law, affecting the congress and the people equally, as well as all persons within the US border. This was to prevent the deprivation of rights, as the congress itself would have to labor under that same deprivation, as would their ‘protectors’ , the executive branch, and the whole body of the people. (See the Federalist 57).
      The only means to this power was something called a ‘bill of attainder’, a law that determined those upon whom it would be applied, and applied to them (via inclusion into a disfavored group, or exclusion from a favored group) deprivations of rights, property, life, or liberty. This power was utterly prohibited to tthe states, and only allowed the federal government under treason charges for specific named individuals, and for prosecuting the president himself.
      The states could not even vote (that being an official state act) to deprive those rights via constitutional amendment. Yet here we are, in a land steeped in lawlessness, where there are those who are above the law, and those beneath it, quite contrary to the guarantees writ within the constitution.
      Congresses (both state and federal) attempt to get around this by licensure, an arbitrary system that prior to the Civil War, was only used on slaves, and for privateers via Letters of Marque and Reprisal.
      You cannot license the operation of a right, nor may you determine who may wield that right, for that is utterly destructive of the operation and purpose of the right itself, as a means of control and counter to the government itself.
      The government may never be allowed to determine who may speak against it, or even fight against it. That would be the end of civil society utterly, and a beginning of the state of war. What more clear a declaration of usurpation could there be, than to take away from those that delegated you power, the means of defending one’s self, and rendering you helpless before the apparatus of the state?

      As was said by Locke in his second treatise on civil government, one of the documents used by Madison himself….
      Sec. 17. And hence it is, that he who attempts to get another man into his absolute power, does thereby put himself into a state of war with him; it being to be understood as a declaration of a design upon his life: for I have reason to conclude, that he who would get me into his power without my consent, would use me as he pleased when he had got me there, and destroy me too when he had a fancy to it; for no body can desire to have me in his absolute power, unless it be to compel me by force to that which is against the right of my freedom, i.e. make me a slave. To be free from such force is the only security of my preservation; and reason bids me look on him, as an enemy to my preservation, who would take away that freedom which is the fence to it; so that he who makes an attempt to enslave me, thereby puts himself into a state of war with me. He that, in the state of nature, would take away the freedom that belongs to any one in that state, must necessarily be supposed to have a foundation of all the rest; as he that in the state of society, would take away the freedom belonging to those of that society or commonwealth, must be supposed to design to take away from them every thing else, and so be looked on as in a state of war.

    Again, another instance of the gun being blamed for the outcome created by an underlying problem. Any person who is ill enough to consider suicide, or murder, won’t be deterred by the denial of access to one particular tool or method – they will find another way (drugs, hanging, etc., etc.). Confiscating guns is a way for Liberals and cowards to make themselves feel better about being impotent to stop a particular act of violence, whether the perpetrator commits an act of violence against someone else (murder), or themselves (suicide). Gun grabbers of all sorts have no compunction about revoking the Rights of the many in order to soothe their own pain, anguish, and lack of understanding and acceptance of another’s Right to self defense or self-sustainment (hunting).

  • JerrySupportsIsreal

    Dear Senator Boquist:
    I am saddened to hear your son took his own life. The loss of a Hero is had on all of us.
    But he was ill. That is the truth. His illness should not be a reason to take away or limit the rights of other people that had nothing to do with your son’s illness.
    Any wronged wife, scorned women, or child, can make charges that are not true. Have you ever heard of a teacher being blamed for a sex act that was proven not true? Or a child calling Child Protective Services because the parent took away the computer, or TV, or phone, just to get back at dad or mom? It happens.
    I understand your son was a Navy Veteran, a Hero in my eyes. But some war wounds are not visible to the human eye. Some wounds are only found through carefully bringing out the truth and uncovering the things he seen, and smelled, and heard, and felt, while at war.
    His unhealed wounds where not healed by the V.A. and the Navy. That is not the gun owners fault.
    That healing can only be done with love and caring with therapy. And Gods loving hand.
    But your blaming the wounds of war on the rights of your fellow Americans is not admitting the truth.
    The truth is, if your son was so set to take his own life, he could have done it with a bottle of aspirin and a soda pop. Or a car. Or a rope.

    Would you be willing to make aspirin and or soda pop illegal, or cars, or ropes, if your son had used them to take his life instead? Would you take away a tool used to help people? Or a treat that give you a worm and fuzzy fleeing when used correctly? My guns protect me and my family. Which makes me and my family feel good.

    May God heal your heart and mind. May He give you and your family His peace. And may you find the courage to forgive your son. I know his death hurt you and your family. And may you find His peace in admitting the truth that will set you free, from the bondage of needing to find a person or thing to blame for the illnesses of the fallen condition of man in life. In Jesus name. Amen.

  • ddearborn

    Hmmm

    OK people this kind of nonsense is blatantly unconstitutional on its face and thus unenforceable in the long term. What will happen is one day someone is going to say hell no and they will fight. The police will respond, but instead of it ending there, the citizens will object in force well beyond the capabilities of the police to stop. The ruling elite want martial law, they want to make their abandoning of the Constitution the new law of the land. They need create armed insurrection to justify it. And slowly but surely that is precisely what they are doing.

    They will not “disarm” the people until the people are forced into bearing arms against the governments lawlessness and tyranny.
