American Bar Association Asks States to Adopt Firearm Confiscation Laws

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

The American Bar Association is pushing state and local governments to adopt firearm confiscation laws similar to those in California.

During their 2017 Annual Meeting, the ABA House of Delegates adopted Resolution 118B, which “urges governments to enact statutes, rules, or regulations authorizing courts to issue gun violence restraining orders, including ex parte orders.”

The ex parte aspect of the resolution means the ABA is pushing confiscation orders that can be issued without any input from the gun owner.  

Breitbart News reported that California Democrats secured “gun violence restraining orders” after the May 23, 2014, Santa Barbara attack. That attack was a carried out by an individual who passed a background check for his firearms, registered his guns with the state — per law — and only used standard capacity magazines (10 rounds or less).

In the wake of gun control’s failure to stop the attack, Democrats pushed more gun control via specialized orders whereby a judge issues a firearm confiscation order without the owner of the firearms having a voice in the process. The ABA is now pushing the same thing on a national basis.

The NRA is steadfast in its opposition to the orders because they violate due process. And according to the NRA-ILA, protection of due process is very important to the ABA, except in the case of firearm confiscation.

The NRA-ILA writes:

Over the years, the American Bar Association has defended the due process rights of some very unpopular groups, including, enemy combatantsterror suspects, and convicts on death row. The organization also advocates that stringent due process standards be applied to the disposition of positive rights, such as “universal access to healthcare,” and welfare benefits. Such advocacy might give some the false impression that the ABA holds a principled position on due process rights in general. When it comes to the due process rights of gun owners, however, the ABA has abandoned any pretense of principle and adopted the prevailing left-wing orthodoxy.

  1. Ok I guess the UN-American Bar Association doesn’t realize the Constitution is the law of the land…..
    So with that being said I’m now branded a Constitutionalist = a TERRORIST
    A person telling the truth becomes a TERRORIST ( or anti-Semitic )
    I’m not ANTI-SEMITIC , I’m just ANTI-BULLSHIT….

    1. LOL… and I’m not anti-social, I’m just anti-stupid.

      Not referring to you, of course, that was on a t-shirt I saw at the grocery store.

      And THAT is definitely UNCHALLENGED! 🙂

      Also saw a great decal on a truck a few weeks ago… Oregunian. Nice!

      1. Now that’s creepy… it said I do not have permission to edit my comment, so I’ll just have to revise it here…

        “Also saw a great decal on a truck a few weeks ago… it said Oregunian (the letters in the shape of an ‘assault’ rifle) Nice!”

  2. The moment they attempt to seize everyone’s guns, they’ll reap what they sow. After that, freedom and liberty can once again be found in America.

  3. Keep pushing.., you’ll soon achieve what you want.. all out anarchy with lawyers as the target .. stupid idiots , every last one of em

    not 1 gun owner is going to respect this outlandish usurpation of our gun rights, this is tantamount to a declaration of war , and the stuffed suits have to know this ..keep poking the bear and eventually it rips yer head off

  4. The ex parte order is impossible. Gun owners will always have input. It comes at the end of the barrel and travels roughly 1250 ft per second.

  5. Kill all the lawyers.

    And this world will be a better place.

    They are boots on the ground for the adversary that controls this earth.

    Some of you may know the adversary as…
    Satan…or Lucifer.
