If This Bill Passes, California Employers Could Have Employees’ Guns Confiscated By The State

Have you ever had an employer that you simply didn’t get along with? No matter what you did, it was just going to be a rough relationship between the two of you?

If you’ve been in that situation, chances are that the worst that they could do to you is to find a way to fire you. Now, though, anti-gunners are setting up a situation in which employers can effectively have control over a person’s right to own a firearm. Chris Eger writes,

The California Assembly on Monday [05/06/2019] advanced a bill to add school faculty, employers and co-workers to the list of people who can ask a judge to take away someone’s guns.

The measure, AB 61, passed the Assembly in a Democrat-heavy 54-16 vote and now heads to the state Senate. It would greatly expand who can file for a Gun Violence Restraining Order in the state under California’s so-called “red flag law.”

Adopted in 2014, the current law allows the seizure of firearms– for up to 21 days– from an otherwise legal gun owner who is believed to pose a “significant danger.” This initial order could be extended for as long as a year if the situation warrants while filing a false petition is a misdemeanor offense. As it stands, just law enforcement and immediate family can seek such an order. AB 61 would expand this to include school employees such as guidance counselors and teachers as well as the employers and co-workers of a subject.

Second Amendment groups such as the Firearms Policy Coalition and Gun Owners of California, who have long felt the orders were a dangerous pathway to gun confiscation without delivering any promise of treatment for someone in legitimate crisis, are opposed to the expansion.

According to the state Department of Justice, GVROs have been issued 614 times from 2016 to the end of 2018.

So, if this law passes, people living in the Democratic Republic of California (oh, wait, it’s the Democratic Republic of China not California. For now.) will have a situation in which their employer can have an employee’s legally-owned firearm confiscated for the “suspicion” of being a threat. Of course, if you work on a college campus, just being politically conservative these days would make people on that campus believe that you are a threat even though the fact of the matter is that you are less likely to be seeking violence than the antifa member sitting next to you on campus.

It’s an unconstitutional move against gun owners, and it puts more innocent people in danger because they will have less options with which to protect themselves. If Californians have any sense, they will work hard to get this bill killed before it becomes law.

  1. California ,the state that rip up the constitution. No more government funding for the state. The socialist nazi party has taken over California.

  2. “IF”California voters have any sense? Are you kidding me? It’s painfully obvious that those California voters that do have any sense are out numbered by the wack jobs in the major metropolitan areas. If there is anyone who deserves our pity, it’s those poor sensible voters who are constantly being bombarded with the insanity of the loony leftists who run the Communist Republic of Kalifornication. The only thing I can offer to those folks is this, GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN. The once great state of California is going down fast. Before long, they’ll want to hit you with a 100% exit tax for trying to escape.

  3. The left wants our guns because they want a one world government and open borders and with our guns in our position they can’t make this new government work. Ugly george soros has bought out the left and he wants one world order because our Constitution protects us and the left wants full control over is. He said Trump is going to wreck his new unjust government.
    And taking guns will not stop the shootings. There are over 300 million guns in America.
    Thank god.

  4. And so it continues down the slippery slope. The gun confiscation will not just hold them for a month but, will just not return them. American citizens have already been arrested or killed in police raids started by these red flag orders. Cops and sheriffs doing these raids will think that they are doing a good deed. Then one day it will be their turn. The raiders will not even be American.😡

  5. what kind of idiots are in office in our govt,. they are going to cause a new civil war if they do not stop with trying to run this country their way. WAKE UP AMERICAN PEOPLE. Demand your CONSTUTIONAL RIGHTS ” Look at all the lives given to assure our FREEDOM. from the time of the WAR with great britain to wars 1-2 world wide then DESERT STORM…

  6. Without any “proof” of human danger, this bill seems to be unconstitutional. We have no proof of any danger by a professional medical person. THerefore, I find there is no real evidence that such a person is a threat. A judge is not a qualified person for such an acusation and such an action.

  7. I’m sure the dems are behind this law. Just another way to confiscate our guns to make us vulnerable and unsafe! Save Our second amendment little by little they are trying to chip away at our Freedom! We don’t need big government! MAGA !!!

  8. The next civil war is closer than most people realise. Yes this is the George Soros New world order at work. We cannot be conquered as long as we are able to fight for this country. Hide them as best as you can and don’t buy guns in a gun store

  9. It’s against our rights!!
    Our constructional right to Baer arms,
    What ever arms we chews!!!
    People need to stand up!! Against all phony bologna’s!!!

    • Robert, your statement would be more credible if you would learn to spell. The liberals see sloppy writing and are convinced the message is from an uneducated idiot. Try: constitutional, bear, whatever and choose. And bolognas.

  10. Not only will I never visit that shit hole of a state, but I will do my part to boycott any and every product that comes out of that state. That includes paying to see any movie made in Kalifornication. They are all brain dead and mostly anti-American.

  11. I am waiting for Kalifornication to break-off at the mountains during the next earthquake.
    When it does break-off and fall into the ocean, Please good people that are in the northern part of the
    state leave before the quake. (The people from the northern part of the state are more conservative.)
    At any rate, I do hope the “sharks” are on patrol, and that Pelosi, Harris, Waters,Shiff, Swallwel, and/or any other Damocrat is there to be consumed. Also if the Kalifornicators want “openborders”, fine! But any
    wet-back illegal that crossed into a state, that is not a sancuary state, will be killed. I do not care how, just do it!Or if you like, the women that are illegal will have their reproductive cords cut, and the men/boys will have their “sacks” cut off. If said males rape girls/women, they(the males) will indeed have their spigot cut off! there will be No exception. Keep your heads high and you guns “locked and loaded”. Have a good year.

  12. Get it right. It’s the “Democratic Republic of Kalifornia” I live here, I should know. If I could afford to move, I would.
    I do live north of the San Andreas fault line, so I should be safe.
