Alabama Extreme Risk Protection Order Bill

BY Herschel Smith
2 years, 7 months ago

Al.com:

Coleman’s bill would create a measure allowing the court to prevent a person deemed a threat to themselves or others from owning or buying a firearm for one year. The bill, if signed into law, would require the surrender of all firearms and ammunition and would allow law enforcement to search the residence for firearms and ammunition.

Family members, law enforcement officers or educators could request a gun violence protective order, which the court could issue immediately without notice to the person it concerned, based solely on information and testimony from the petitioner. This is called an ex parte gun violence protective order.

Yes, even in Alabama.  It’s everywhere, no small indication that the controllers aren’t just in New York, Chicago or Washington, D.C.  It’s popular and easy now to push red flag bills and declare yourself free of “controller guilt” because you did a “good thing.”  But the point is that takes a controller at heart to do it.  Most politicians are controllers at heart, regardless of what they say.

Recall what I said about that.  “The desire to control others is the first sign, incorrigible pathology and premier sin of the wicked.”  The desire to control others is always and everywhere evil.  To my Alabama readers, see if you can beat this back, and then make the proponents of this bill pay for ever bringing this up in the first place.

    Thanks for the link Pat. My question to them is “what are you afraid of “? If a citizen wants to buy or build a select fire weapon, so what. All gun laws are unconstitutional.

    The real reason behind Red Flag laws is to prevent the people from enforcing their liberty. “Safety” is an age old cry of the oppressor.

    Re the Smith piece. I believe you can learn all that you need to know about a man by whether he thinks you ought to be at liberty to go armed. Smith is very right. That’s why I ask every politician I meet, and I meet them on purpose, about guns just to watch them squirm. In fact, I’ve never met anyone, politician or otherwise who claims to be a Republican or a Conservative who doesn’t hesitate or outright say no about ease of access and weapon types.

    Of course Police should have ‘authority’ to take any gun. Back the blue because magical costumes make them special and impervious to being wrong. And if the police say you shouldn’t have a gun, well then you shouldn’t because the police in America would NEVER do what they did in Russia or China or Armenia or Cambodia or Ireland or East Germany or greater Germany before the war. Because America has magical freedom unicorn rainbow farts that spew candy liberty drops from the heaven government has created and granted to us for our own safety.

    These laws continue to amaze me. Not only do they effectively revoke citizens 2nd Amendment rights, they casually strip them of their 4th, 5th, 6th, and (if done as a civil suit) 7th Amendment rights.

    In effect, if you own a gun, the Constitution doesn’t apply to you – even in Alabama.

    A legislator here in Utah ran one of these “red flag” bills this year. Thankfully, it didn’t go anywhere (I don’t think it even got a committee hearing, if I recall).

    That said, he threatened to bring it back next year and every year until it passes, because it’s “the right thing to do”.

    No, sir. The “right thing to do” is to leave people the hell alone and stop trying to take their rights from them.

    Oh, and I should add that Utah is HEAVILY Republican. At least on paper. What that really means is that a boatload of controllers here realize they can’t win political office unless they run as a Republican.

    Utah isn’t as conservative or freedom-oriented as some people think.

    Note how well California’s red flag law worked (passed to “prevent” exactly such an incident) on the 19-year-old who shot-up the Chabad Synagogue in Poway. My guess is, the shooter demonstrated “problem” behavior for some time, and not a single person did anything definitive about it. The “problem” was not the gun. The “problem” was the shooter and the enablers around him.

    ExpatNJ @ 1732,

    Although I commend you for still believing a politician gives a rat’s ass what any constituent believes or thinks about any given topic, the facts of the matter is they do not !

    Coleman may listen or show interest to one waving a check of $10k in her name or a sock full of American Eagle gold coins for her. Other than that she could care less about the health or welfare of a constituent. Hell, the scoundrel is embedded in Alabama politics for more than 16 years ! There she will remain until SHE decides to leave. In the meantime she will do nothing but feather her own nest. Courtesy of the ignorant electorate who will keep her big, round dark posterior slathered in the gravy train of career politics.
