Rob Kardashian: Will California Confiscate His Gun?

Yesterday, the artist known as Blac Chyna told a judge that her baby daddy/reality TV ex/general roustabout Rob Kardashian had threatened to commit suicide, and has a gun! [/sarc] So . . .

Why hasn’t the judge ordered the police to confiscate Mr. Kardashian’s firearm(s)?

According to the mandates set out by California’s Gun Violence Restraining Order law (now known as a Firearms Emergency Protective Order), the police are directed to confiscate the firearms of anyone who poses a serious threat of violence or self-harm.

As we’ve reported for years, GVRO/FEPO’s are deeply unconstitutional. Hearings are held ex parte; making the subject of the order guilty until proven innocent.

The reason it hasn’t been used in this case: the “victim” must petition the court for a FEPO. As far as we know, Ms. Chyna hasn’t applied for an order from the court. Yet. Watch this space.

As a side note, as much as I wouldn’t wish this law on my worst enemy, it would be awesome if Ms. Chyna did file a FEPO on Mr. Kardashian, leading to an extremely high-profile court case challenging the law.

    She has a restraining order against Rob. I’m surprised China would have to request it in Commifornia.

    Don’t date strippers.

      Don’t stick your dick in crazy. Don’t date strippers and never kiss a porn star. Every father should recite these rules to their son’s.

        “Don’t stick your dick in crazy. Don’t date strippers and never kiss a porn star.”

        So kissing crazy, dicking strippers, and dating porn stars is a go?

        Well damn…. wish I’d known that before meeting the ex-wife.

          You’re assuming they’re disjoint sets…

      2. avatar 16V says:

        jwm, you have missed out on all the fun they used to print in Penthouse Letters. Stick the D in crazy, anytime she’s incredibly attractive. Strippers and porn stars? Hell yeah!

        Just remember to wrap that rascal. 35 years of strippers, the odd porn star, and ‘deviant’ doctors, lawyers, accountants, and computer nerds have left me (and many others) none the worse for wear.

        Not saying that you should do it, but it works for more than a few folks. Everybody likes what they like and all that….

        1. avatar jwm says:

          16v. I didn’t miss out on the fun. Which is why I now live by those rules. In the 60’s we’d never heard of aids or herpes. Same with most of the 70’s.

          We used condoms for water balloons.

        Don’t let trash stick its dick in you for that matter. Nothing but scumbags all around in this story.

    2. avatar 16V says:

      strych9, Why should one not date strippers?

      One is presumably fully aware of what they do for a living. One should know the full range of what that entails.

      1. avatar Jomo says:

        It’s precisely BECAUSE one is aware of the stripper’s current occupation that you avoid dating strippers. A lot of these women have severe emotional issues and nearly all of them come with a lot of baggage. If you know this to be true, why put yourself in the situation of having to manage all that baggage. Just don’t do it. Your kids, if you have any, will be better off for having avoided that mess.

        1. avatar 16V says:

          Most women have emotional issues, and/or come with a trunkload of baggage. By the time they’re 20-25, pretty safe bet, especially with 3rd wave feminism telling them how oppressed they are. Especially “educated” women.

          I’m sure one day I’ll meet a 30-something attractive college grad, who has her life together, doesn’t have daddy issues, ex-bf issues, ex-hubby issues, depression issues, chemical issues, appreciates art, understands science, and is functionally well-read. She doesn’t even need to cook.

          Until then, I make do…

          LOL! You have no idea.

    3. avatar Russ H says:

      Married a stripper, she was AWESOME! I was 22, she was 29. She used to bring other dancers home on occasion for “fun” (her idea – she liked girls too). I divorced her 9 yrs later when she decided she didn’t want kids though. Strippers are GREAT – just make sure they aren’t into drugs or tied to a biker gang. So don’t knock’em till you’ve tried one.

    Why do laws like this only call for confiscating guns of the suspected suicidal person? Why not cars? belts? shoelaces? razors? kitchen knives? pills? etc? Maybe it’s not about the suicides. A determined suicidal person will find a way. Maybe it’s about the guns.

    1. avatar TyrannyOfEvilMen says:

      Because if you commit suicide with a gun rather than by any other means, you are more dead. Duh! /s

    2. avatar Gregg Barnes says:

      Also, you can only kill yourself with a gun. Duh!

    3. avatar GS650G says:

      Might be simpler to lock them up. No trial. Just throw away the key. Off to the reeducation camp.

  4. avatar Jay in Florida says:

    At least a court order would cost him and or his family a lot of money. Since they are a bunch of no talents and famous for what??
    That would be a good thing too.

    1. avatar 16V says:

      “This is my rifle, this is my gun!”

      Please, CA, take his gun. Anything used to penetrate that cartoon character, with a suitable name, has got to be anime rape, or something even worse….

  5. avatar Mark N. says:

    Although Robert finds them “deeply unconstitutional,” FEPOs are not, since a required hearing his held within three weeks of which the defendant is given notice by personal service, at which he or she has the right to appear, present evidence, and be represented by counsel. That is all that due process requires.

    That said, the news (admittedly I only read the headlines since I just don’t care about these folks) said she’d obtained a TRO, presumably because he threatened her, the nudie pics he posted about her, internet bullying, and because “he had been violent towards me in the past.” That could result in a firearms order after hearing, which for California means that the defendant must dispossess him/herself of firearms, wither to the police, or by transfer to another person/FFL. Not quite confiscation, since the defendant, unless convicted of spousal abuse, will be entitled to get them back at some point.

    I didn’t see anything about a threatened suicide, but again, I don’t read this stuff, and second, if they are living separate and apart, as reported, she is not legally entitled to obtain a FEPO.

    But Rob K. is (perhaps!)the least talented Kardashian of the clan…don’t take his guns?What would the poorboy do?

    (Searches through wallet, backpack, pants pockets and the car’s center console)
    Nope, sorry. I don’t have a f–k to give.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      I even looked in the ice chest in the back of my 4runner. Not a fuck to be found.

      1. avatar KMc says:

        My fucks all flew away.

        1. avatar jwm says:

          A shotgun loaded with 6 shot might have stopped your fucks from flying away. Right off hand I don’t know any good recipes for freshly downed fucks.

        2. avatar bLoving says:

          No recipe needed. They are best consumed when very fresh (ie: struggling to escape).

    Can a connected California rich white man be exempt from the laws that the rest of us have to follow???? Yes, and it happens all the time.
    Sean Penn was not a resident of the northern California county when he got a gun carry permit. He got caught when his car with the gun in it, was stolen and he had to report it.

    The white Jews of the JDL in southern California got to have and walk around with Thompson Sub Machine Guns in the 1980’s. Because of the Mulford Act, black California residence couldn’t do that.

    Rob Kardashian was put on this Earth to remind us that Kim’s not the biggest ass in the family.

  10. avatar rt66paul says:

    Or maybe, they actually wnt him to make the attempt. Or maybe they think it is just a publicity stunt. If they are wrong and he makes a successful attempt, someone will be in trouble.

  11. avatar Andrew Lias says:

    If in the rhetorical case he gets in legal trouble over this, fights the case and wins it would have been the first time a Kardashian has been useful in a long time. Perhaps since the OJ era.

    1. avatar Fred Goldman says:

      If by useful you mean helping a murderer go free… Those “people” have been nothing but a blight on society from the get go.

  12. avatar Kc in NorCal says:

    Anybody see the body cam footage of Shila? What’s his name from transformers. They should be at his place to cleaning him out if they are going to enforce that law on anyone.

  13. avatar Darren P. says:

    “These “gun laws” only apply to YOU,the lowly peasant,I have fame and fortune and TV personality” Rob Kardashian. Or that’s what I believe he thinks and would say. (You like how I did that CNN)

    This is less an issue about gun rights, than it is about people with messed up relationships and lifestyles that put them in the crosshairs for this kind of thing. Get your act together and you won’t end up in court and have these kinds of issues.
