Please contact your state Senator and urge them to oppose Senate Bill 650!
As previously reported, SB 650, in its current form, allows the applicant of an ex parte temporary restraining order to indicate whether the respondent is in possession of any firearms or ammunition or holds a state issued firearms permit or ammunition certificate and to have a sworn police officer serve the order. Upon serving the order, law enforcement would confiscate all firearms, ammunition, firearms permits and ammunition certificates. Because an ex parte temporary restraining order is one where only one party, the applicant, makes a claim and does not have to appear in front of a judge before the order is issued, this will allow for Second Amendment rights to be stripped away without due process of law.
SB 650 has now gone to the full Senate for consideration as early as this week. Please contact your state Senator and politely urge him or her to oppose SB 650. If you are unsure who represents you, click here. Please also submit testimony in opposition to this bill.
