California AB 1014 has passed out of Committee, heading for a full vote in the California legislature. The bill would create “Gun Violence Prevention Orders” that would allow police to “proactively” confiscate firearms and hold them for one-year (renewable) based on accusations from immediate family, law enforcement or licensed mental health professionals – without due process. Yes, a judge would rule on it, but without representation from the accused – until after confiscation. “The bill would permit the restrained person to request a hearing on the order, and, if it is found at the hearing that the order is not supported by good cause, would require the court to dissolve the order.” A false accusation would be a misdemeanor. This is as bad as it gets. I hope.
