California is considered one of the worst state’s in the nation in terms of respecting gun owner’s rights…and they just got even worse. Citing coronavirus concerns the state’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra extended all red flag orders by 90 days.
People affected were previously stripped of their weapons and Second Amendment rights for 21 days without due process in California. But now Becerra has ordered those people to lose their rights and due process for an additional 90 days, meaning you could be forced to wait nearly 4 months before getting the chance to go in front of a judge and tell your side of the story. During all that time you are left sitting there, defenseless, with no way to protect yourself.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has been adamant that he is using the data to decide when he will lift stay at home orders and begin reopening the state. That’s rich because AG Becerra didn’t explain what coronavirus or crime data he looked at that caused him to issue the extension. That’s because there isn’t a single shred of data to back up his orders, he did this as a simple way to enact his liberal, anti-gun agenda to rid the state of guns.
In California they don’t call them red flag laws, the call them Gun Violence restraining orders (GVRO). Becerra was able to get away with extended GVRO’s because California is still declared under a state of emergency he doesn’t have to go through the state legislature to get this approved.
This is scary because it could have massive implications for the rest of us that live under tyrannical governors. If Becerra is able to get away with this, what’s to stop other state’s Governors from enacting the same radical anti-gun orders? The governor of Illinois, Oregon, New York, and others are looking at Becerra’s orders with great enthusiasm.
