Under the guise of making us safer, as is the usual ploy, more states are considering anti-gun laws that would “allow” other people with guns (cops) to confiscate the guns of people who are accused of being dangerous, be that for mental or potential domestic abuse threat.
Well, the American Bar association has decided to come out in support of this fundamental violation of the fourth amendment, due process. Apparently, practicing the so-called Rule of Law, actually making a living ostensibly off of the very concept of Rule of Law, doesn’t actually require you to FOLLOW Rule of Law.
The American Bar Association approved a resolution Tuesday to support gun violence restraining orders, despite opposition from some over issues of due process.
The measure, Resolution 118B, passed in the ABA House of Delegates on Tuesday and encourages state and local governments to enact laws allowing courts to issue restraining orders that would require law enforcement to seize guns from the subjects of those orders, the ABA Journal reported.
Ex parte temporary restraining orders are also included in the resolution, and such orders do not require the presence of the individual targeted by the order.
Under the resolution, those seeking a restraining order would be required to submit evidence that the targeted individual poses a serious threat to himself or others, and a procedure must be set in place for the seizure of guns and ammunition.
Subjects of such orders would also be prohibited from obtaining a firearm or firearms license while under the order, the resolution states, as their names would be added to state and federal databases.
