Gun owners and Second Amendment supporters can breathe a sigh of relief. All anti-gun bills, previously reported on here, have stalled in the House Judiciary Committee. However, this doesn’t mean the fight is over this year. Following news of the stalled legislation, those same anti-gun billionaires who pushed Initiative 594 have announced that they plan to go back to the ballot to accomplish their political agenda.
Your NRA has heard that the usual suspects are planning to roll out a ballot initiative similar to House Bill 2461. This legislation sought to allow family members or law enforcement to petition the court to issue an “extreme risk protection order,” taking away someone’s Second Amendment rights without due process. At this time, no language exists for the ballot initiative, but extreme versions of this bill have been drafted to allow virtually anyone to petition the court and have the Second Amendment rights of a law-abiding individual stripped away without a judicial proceeding. In most cases, the individual doesn’t even know that they have had their rights removed until it is too late.
