Oregon Close To Passing Bill Allowing Firearm Seizures Without Due Process

It appears that Oregon is just one step away from passing an Extreme Risk Protection Order Bill, which can immediately force the subject of the order to hand over all firearms, as well as concealed carry permits. It does not require the gun owner to be present for part of the hearing in which the judge decides whether guns should be taken.

Senate Bill 719 co-sponsored by Sen. Brian Boquist (R-Dallas) reads:

Creates process for obtaining extreme risk protection order prohibiting person from possessing deadly weapon when court finds that person presents risk in near future, including imminent risk, of suicide or causing injury to another person.
