California Governor Jerry Brown Signs Gun Restraining Order Bill

California today became the first state to allow family members to petition judges to take away relatives’ guns if they are deemed to be “dangerous”.


Bill Summary

Creates a Gun Violence Restraining Order (GVRO), which is defined as “an order, in writing, signed by the court, prohibiting and enjoining a named person from having under his or her custody and control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving any firearms or ammunition.”

What’s the over/under on how long it will take for this law to be abused?

    The fruit cakes in california will abuse this quickly. Even if the victim moves away the restraining order will follow them and not allow them to pass a federal background check to buy a gun. Angry wives will wreck havoc not to mention a teenager who gets there cell phone taken away or grounded for bad grades.

    California residents continue to embarrass the United States. Pathetic.

    You think the guns that get taken are ever going to be returned? This is a way for them to get more guns out of the hands of legal owners. Hey I have an idea, lets make a law for your law so you can have a law while you go to the law in between laws.

    The Bill of Rights lists specific prohibitions on governmental power and preserves a person’s liberty. Hmm, It looks like that is not the case in the People’s Democratic Republic of California. Constitution……what Constitution

    How long?
    1 minute or less after it goes into effect.
