Looks like it’s finally happening folks. The liberals are making their move and if you’re a staunch gun supporter like we are here at Yes I’m Right, you’re not going to like this one bit. THIS is what people should really be resisting, not Trump.
The bill, in part, reads as follows:
“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.”
In layman’s terms, this means that a law enforcement officer would need to do is simply file a petition to the courts if they have even the slightest reason to believe an Illinois resident could be a threat to themselves or anyone around them, and then their firearm(s) could be confiscated.
This is not good, folks. Please get the word out and shut this down. We the People must voice our displeasure with this and do everything we can to preserve our Second Amendment.
