Mainstream Media Now Promoting "Gun Confiscation Orders" As Solution To Mass Shootings

Authored by Alex Thomas via,

In what many saw coming a mile away in the aftermath of both the Las Vegas Massacre and the Texas Church mass shooting, liberals in the government, with the help of their mainstream media allies, are now pushing what amounts to plans for gun confiscation, outside of normal law, for Americans across the country.

The new push for gun control from the left comes courtesy of ABC News which recently published a piece promoting the use of an Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) that many believe is nothing more than a thinly veiled confiscation plan that would allow a judge to “issue an ex parte order” for the direct confiscation of an American citizens firearms.

Unbelievably, the order can actually be issued without the firearm owner even being present, which would in turn end with police at the citizens door demanding he hand over his weapons or face violence from the state.

ABC’s Andy Fies, on the other hand, apparently wants Americans to see the orders differently, painting a more friendly picture of the ERPO’s while quoting two different left-wing gun control groups as seemingly unbiased experts on gun violence.

As of now, only Washington, California, Connecticut and most recently Oregon have ERPO laws (while Indiana and Texas have modified risk warrant statutes). Over the past year, however, spurred by a string of mass shootings beginning with the Pulse Nightclub attack that killed 49 in June 2016, legislatures in 19 states and Washington, D.C., have taken up 32 separate ERPO bills for consideration, according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit organization that advocates for gun control.


Everytown’s deputy legal director, William Rosen, told ABC News that list will grow. “We expect to see at least as much interest in 2018,” he said.


“There is a growing consensus,” added Lauren Alfred of the gun violence prevention group Sandy Hook Promise, “that this is the first step we should be taking when we are talking about people who are at risk of hurting themselves or others.”


Current laws barring gun ownership are limited. Generally, a person with a long history of mental health issues can still legally buy or possess firearms if they don’t fall into specific statutory categories such as having been adjudicated mentally ill or under a domestic violence restraining order. But, as was the case with Texas church gunman Devin Kelley, even these restrictions may not work if the person’s troubled past is not recorded on a background registry.


With an ERPO, however, if family members or police can show a gun owner to be an imminent danger to themselves or others, they can force the person to surrender their weapon(s).

Keep in mind that Everytown for Gun Safety is a Michael Bloomberg funded, left-wing gun control group that was created as part of a rebranding effort by the billionaire gun grabber after his previous group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, was outed by multiple former members as actually pushing an agenda of full-scale gun confiscation.

The Extreme Risk Protection Orders scheme seems to be nothing more than another attempt at slowly eroding the right of lawful Americans to own firearms.

As AWR Hawkins reported in an April 2017 article about a similar law being pushed in Oregon, “Oregon state Sen. Brian Boquist is pushing a confiscation bill that would broaden the number of prohibited gun purchasers as well as require certain individuals to hand over any guns in their possession.”

At the time, gun rights activist and NRA member Keely Hopkins rightfully described the law as an attempt to remove your Second Amendment rights by using a third-party who would need little evidence to declare you unfit to own a firearm. (Imagine a vengeful ex-wife/husband)

“This bill allows for a protective order to remove your Second Amendment rights, not because of a criminal conviction, but based on third-party allegations using an evidentiary standard that falls far below what’s normally required for the removing of fundamental rights.”

It is also important to note that gun control advocates and the mainstream media are using The Las Vegas Massacre, which the authorities are openly lying about (there were at least 7 different shooters) as a pretext to further take away Americans right to bear arms. This is, and has always been, the modus operandi of the power elite.

Never gonna happen.There's way more of 'us' than there are of 'them'.I would expect a broad revolt amongst the law enforcement community if they were all tasked with door-to-door confiscation.(((They))) will be forced to attempt a different approach.If the HIPPA laws can somehow be circumvented, then psychological and mental health issues will be used as a pretext for disarmament next.

Gasoline is, technically, an explosive.Everyone unwittingly commits several felonies a day, making our legal system worthless. So ignore it just as our lawmakers routinely do.If someone tells you "I have a court order requiring you to surrender your firearms because..." Just interrupt their speech, get their full name, shoot them, then immediately find the judge who signed the order, shoot him/her/it. Burn their homes down.That's very discouraging to the replacement bureaucrats.Gosh, I guess lawlessness was a bad example for our leaders to set.

One might expect that the most seriously unstable individuals occupy the upper echelons within the halls of power.These types of sociopathic personalities have largely become accustomed to having their orders followed by their subservient lackeys without question, but once a certain line in the sand has been drawn, such as The 2nd Amendment, then even these LEOs will recognize a losing proposition when they see it.Most people aren't that stupid.The 2nd Amendment was specifically enshrined within The Constitution as a safeguard against tyranny.

Ah, psychology.Part of the movement against the people has been to catorgorize and compartmentalize these types of evaluations. That way the masses can be fed the name and POSSIBLE problems someone who thinks like this can POSSIBLY harm you. Much like they have done with other types of behaviors.Think about things. And consider what was not "normal' 20 years ago is now breaking into mainstream.

People in my subdivision would take Chantix, have 2-3 glasses of wine and be tripping the light fantasic.Many of the drugs these days have no long term effect data. But this is nothing new, neither does cocaine and a host of other drugs from  days gone by.People have no idea how they are being wired, or rewired, or having the wires ripped out.Thee will always be a reason for confiscation making "sense'.

About half my clients are people who have been deemed SMI (Seriously mentally ill).Do not put anything in your body that is prescribed for you by a state indoctrinated psychologist. Its all bullshit. It keeps these people thinking they have a "problem" so they keep coming back and the state keeps paying the bills. (Behavioral health is funded by the state once deemed SMI)

"I would expect a broad revolt amongst the law enforcement community...."You and a lot of other ZHers are either woefully naive or just plain ignorant of reality.  Your LE community, and everyone else's, is a locally licensed gang of unionized thugs.  They have allegiance only to their union and any pretense to "protect and serve" the populace is a farce.  LEO at all levels is a matter of union membership and they hide behind compulsory arbitration agreements rather than outright employment contracts that are common in private enterprise.  When the chips are down there won't be a single member of your local police force that will fail to go door-to-door and do whatever is required to deprive innocents citizens of their constitutional rights.

Agreed.But who's doing the burning? I know where all of my local LEs, bankers, and politicians live.If you have to, Kerosene. Never ever gasoline. 3AM. Make sure windows and doors are fully engulfed. Else, stay in your midden heap and hope the jackboots pass you by.My bureaucrats are OK, so far. I think they'll stay OK.

(((They))) will always find a way around our Constitution, you're right, you can already see it, just declare all gun owners "crazy lone nuts" and there you go. Best of luck to em.People know the truth now, so they're not very likely to hand them over without a fight.They will not stop until they get them, false flags, new laws, disarming the slaves is the end game.

I will propose confiscation of weapons from our government since they're the ones that are killing everyone. Specially Mossad/CIA/FBI, can't trust them one bit. Bombs too, especially the nuclear ones.I also propose we are given the abiility to spy on our government, since they'e the ones beaking all the laws.Come on, hand em over spooksThey really do want a Bolshevik genocide of Americans huh?
