Your NRA-ILA would like to thank everyone who joined us today at the Capitol in Salem and attended the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Senate Bill 868, Senate Bill 797 and Senate Bill 764. At this time, these three anti-gun bills are no longer scheduled for a vote tomorrow; however, the proposed amendments to Senate Bill 719 would mirror SB 868 in an attempt to create a so-called “Extreme Risk Protection Order” (ERPO) that could be obtained by a law enforcement officer, family member, or household member in an ex parte hearing to deprive someone of their Second Amendment rights without due process of the law. The amendments to SB 719 may be voted on in the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow, and it is imperative that you contact the committee members and urge them not to replace SB 719 with an ERPO bill!
The ex parte order that would be created by the amendments to SB 719 would strip the accused of their Second Amendment rights based on the brief statement of the petitioner. The accused would not be afforded the chance to appear in court to defend themselves against the allegations when the ERPO is issued. These orders may be issued without any allegations of criminal behavior.
