“I know that many in Oregon are VERY upset that SB 719 passed,” Republican State Representative Bill Post announced Thursday. “Therefore a group of us are working to repeal it via the ballot. We need your help.”
SB 719? That’s a new edict that specifies:
“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.”
Without even being charged with a crime, let alone convicted… Think of the potential incentives for abuse. And then think of the expense it would take for someone falsely accused to fight allegations, and the amount of “sympathy” or even basic justice to expect from an overwhelmingly “progressive” Oregon “justice” system.
Think of how “guilty until proven innocent” stands against everything right and just. And Constitutional.
