Anti-gun liberals don’t support the Second Amendment. While they are busy growing the size and scope of government, they don’t trust individuals with firearms.
Now, in the state of Illinois, where violent crime is skyrocketing in Chicago, politicians are considering a Democrat-backed bill which would allow for gun confiscation, as long as any family member or law enforcement official asks for it to happen.
If the cops believe you’re a danger to yourself, they can take your gun away. Never mind all the thousands of criminals in Chicago who are never giving up THEIR guns.
Here is the key part of Illinois Senate Bill 1291:
Creates the Lethal Violence Order of Protection Act. Provides that a petitioner may request an emergency lethal violence order of protection by filing an affidavit or verified pleading alleging that the respondent poses an immediate and present danger of causing personal injury to himself, herself, or another by having in his or her custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving a firearm.
Provides that the petition shall also describe the type, and location of any firearm or firearms presently believed by the petitioner to be possessed or controlled by the respondent.
Provides that the petitioner may be a family member of the respondent or a law enforcement officer, who files a petition alleging that the respondent poses a danger of causing personal injury to himself, herself, or another by having in his or her custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving a firearm. Establishes factors that the court must consider before issuing a lethal violence order of protection. Provides for the issuance of ex parte orders and one year orders.
Provides that if the court issues the order the respondent must: (1) refrain from having in his or her custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving additional firearms for the duration of the order; and (2) turn over to the local law enforcement agency any firearm, Firearm Owner’s Identification Card, or concealed carry license in his or her possession.
All that needs to happen for any resident of Illinois to have his or her firearms to be confiscated is if a petition is filed with a court, saying the person is a danger to themselves.
If this bill became law, a core constitutional right could therefore be eliminated without a trial and without evidence. This is outrageous.
Chicago is one of the most anti-gun cities in the country and yet the crime rate is shamefully high. Won’t Democrat politicians ever learn?
