New Oregon Law Green Lights Gun Confiscation in “Emergencies”

Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed into law a bill establishing circumstances under which citizens of that state could be forced to surrender their firearms to government agents.

Section 2 of the new statute (formerly Senate Bill 719) gives power to:

A law enforcement officer or a family or household member of a person may file a petition requesting that the court issue an extreme risk protection order enjoining the person from having in the person’s custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing or receiving, or attempting to purchase or receive, a deadly weapon.

That’s right. File a petition in Oregon and you can disarm a relative or roommate.
