Gun control law, AB-1014, is going into effect in California tomorrow and will allow authorities to seize a person’s weapons for 21 days if a judge determines there is “potential for violence.” (that’s an extremely large, wide open opportunity to maneuver someones life and privacy!)
Proposed in the wake of the deadly May 2014 shooting rampage by UK-born Elliot Rodger, the bill provides family members with a means of having an emergency “gun violence restraining orders” imposed against a loved one if they can “convince a judge” that this person’s possession of a firearm and ammunition “poses an immediate and present danger of causing personal injury to himself, herself or another by having in his or her custody or control.”
“The law gives us a vehicle to cause the person to surrender their weapons, to have a “time out,” if you will,” Los Angeles Police Department Assistant Chief Michael Moore told a local NPR affiliate. “It allows further examination of the person’s mental state.”
“It’s an opportunity for mental health professionals to provide an analysis of a person’s mental state.” [emphasis added]
Elliot Rodger, 22, killed six people and injured 14 others before taking his own life during a wave of attacks across Isla Vista near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, that he carried out with two knives and three handguns that he legally purchased.
Here’s where the story of so called “mass murder,” Elliot Roger, takes a strange turn, very strange.
When police interviewed Elliot Rodger they found him to be a “perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human,” (i.e. staged/rehearsed) family attorney Alan Shifman said. (Note who attorney Shifman is below)
– Photo: Elliot Rodger is seen with his father, Peter Rodger, and Sylvester Stallone at the premiere of ” The Hunger Games“ in 2012. Does Elliot look like a guy who has problems with girls? With his dad being a director of the Hunger Games seems to put him in privileged position.
Shifman added that “Police did not find a history of guns,” but did say Rodger didn’t have a lot of friends,” and had trouble making friends and didn’t have any girlfriends. Alan Shifman is the attorney for Peter Rodger, who was one of the directors on ‘Hunger Games.’
Elliot Rodger’s shooting rampage was prefaced by a video uploaded to YouTube of Rodger discussing his plans, as well as a 107,000-word manifesto, both of which were circulated minutes before he began killing.
Here’s the literally, unbelievable “manifesto” spin.
implementation of the bill is expected to give family members a mechanism for having loved ones lose access to their own, legally acquired weapons in hopes of stopping similar rampages.
Can’t you just imagine how disgruntled friends or family members can now throw you under the bus by claiming you’re mentally ill!?
Especially considering the fact that at least two thirds of people are taking antidepressants!!!!!!!
“It’s the family members, it’s the people closest to the perpetrator, who are in the best position to notice red flags,” Wendy Patrick, a San Diego State University professor and lawyer, told San Diego’s CBS affiliate this week.
This is nothing less than an justified gun grab against those who may be unfairly targeted by bogus allegations.
Second Amendment advocates have cried foul, however, and insist that legislation is not the answer in a state already ripe with gun rules that are more restrictive than most anywhere else in America.
“We don’t need another law to solve this problem,” Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California, told The Associated Press. “We think this just misses the mark and may create a situation where law-abiding gun owners are put in jeopardy.”
