The Left will never stop trying every way to strip away our most fundamental rights, never forget that as you read what Jenn Jacques at Bearing Arms has
A proposed bill from Illinois Representative Kathleen Willis (D-Addison) would allow anyone to file a petition to take away someone’s gun rights if they felt the gun owner posed a threat to themselves or others.
The Lethal Violence Order of Protection Act says:
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. Establishes factors for renewing and terminating lethal violence orders of protection. Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act and the Firearm Concealed Carry Act to make conforming changes.
“We’re trying to be as open to protecting people’s second right amendments, but also protecting people from themselves and other family members,” Rep. Willis said.
Yeah, sire you are Rep. Willis, sure you are. Lord knows no one would ever abuse such a law right? Certainly no one would ever use such a law for personal gain, or out of spite right? What Rep. Willis is advocating is that one of our most precious rights be reduced to meaningless status. Imagine how fanatics like Moms Demand Action crowd would abuse this law. Dana Loesch would not approve
