Report: California ordered record number of gun confiscations in 2020

California allows for firearms to be confiscated under so-called red flag laws. The Gun Violence Restraining Orders went into effect in 2016, but 2020 was a record-setting year.

Judges in California successfully confiscated a record 1,285 firearms last year, Breitbart reported. The guns were ordered to be temporarily removed from those who were identified as a threat.

While the laws are ostensibly meant to keep guns out of the hands of people who might pose a threat to themselves or others, the fact that it tramples Second Amendment rights is troubling. Judges are empowered to hand down their decisions, sometimes without ever interviewing the person whose weapons are being confiscated.

Some also argue that the measure isn’t very effective either. “The truth is that it is very rare to know in advance when someone is going to be dangerous with a firearm,” Adam Winkler, UCLA law professor, said. “This is not going to make a huge dent in our gun violence statistics.”

President Joe Biden has proposed similar federal legislation, Fox News reported. He made the announcement last month under the auspices of addressing the “public health crisis” of gun violence.

Second Amendment advocates have cautioned against such nationwide measures, but Biden insists the red flaw rules would not infringe on those rights. “Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,” he said. “These are phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake from what we’re talking about.”

He went on to say that “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute” and later asserted that “you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own” from its inception. “From the very beginning the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons,” Biden insisted. “So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution.”

Democrats hide behind seemingly commonsense legislation as they push further to infringe on Americans’ Constitutional rights. Red flag laws may have their place, but implementing them fairly and properly is already worrisome on the state level and has no place in American federal law.

Any gun control law is a rights violation that gives those who don’t want rights a victory to go farther, then to attack other rights! So yes we need much more gun control, then knife controls, then pepper spray, etc until all rights are gone! So do it whoever you are to allow the future to-be an oppressive bigoted violent future of death!

1st…why are adverts for scam “job sites” being allowed to post on here when legitimate responses are censored? Actual Dem site maybe?? When you realize you are walking around with a bulls-eye on your back because of idiotic, Dictatorial, Communistic, Anit-American policies being instituted against Democracy that THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of people died to protect, it’s no wonder the Dems are wanting guns banned…especially ones with long range! I’m sure they are waiting for, and expecting, someone or a group to have “had enough” of The United States of America being ruined, unsafe internally and from abroad, and civil rights being stripped through the ruination of the Constitution.
Now lets see if this response is censored/deleted!!??

Democrat play book, create threats and dangers, build it up bigger than it is, blame everything on everyone else, have the media back their claims and expand on it, raise taxes to fix the problem because they think money, which is only gained by taking it from the citizens, is the solution to solving every problem. Then they put in ridiculous laws that don’t do anything to solve the problem so more money more money more money! The only solution to the gun violence is to keep the guns out of the hands of the criminals. The only way to do that is to increase the penalty for miss using the guns in the first place. That won’t happen because the lawyers will argue that it would be cruel and inhumane. The most gun free zones have the highest crime rate. Proof that taking guns away from everyone only makes the situation worse.

Because it was stolen. If it had been legit, then it would have been allowed to stand as with any other legit election. I’ve got a feeling that with the swing state audits been conducted, that there is going to be a domino effect.

Gun confiscation by states and the feds will lead to only one thing. The formation of new business by the cartels in Mexico and others. They havn’t stopped the flow of illegal drugs into this country {for whatever reason} how do they prepose to stop the flow of weapons into this country. If individuals want weapons, someone will supply them, legally or illegally

These DEMORATS will never come to their senses. You have to have a brain to have Any senses. They have always wanted to get rid of our firearms. Now they want illegal immigrants from all over the world to come in. They want to take away our freedom of speech and anything else that will hurt this country.

How many people voted without really knowing what our leaders stand for. How many people did not vote for Biden and company, but were counted anyway. Yeah you can stifle Congress, the media is complicit and it was done up front by in-roads into laws in key swing states while we all slept. Between stupidity, ignorance and outright deceit we are in a nation and world that is becoming dangerous much too fast. Joe goes to bed at 7pm and all the communist-progressive-democrats begin all night planning sessions. We need to be ready, we need to resist, we need law enforcement and military to resist. War, civil or otherwise is coming. Our freedom and our American legacy cannot be allowed to die.

Well this puts California as a first site for China or any other invading army to target. They will establish a foot hold and base to attack the rest of America. Newsome, the snowflakes, and the Hollyweirds will just roll over and surrender.

Stay here in this ever shrinking delusional world. You “need” your guns , even bigger ones. Don’t get vaccinated and keep believing that the orange clown did not lose the election, but it was stolen. He lies, you buy it and he does not care about you. Hopefully, one day you will come to reality.

I agree with the folks that said quit freeing felons, it’s awful but I’m in California hoping that the moron Newsom is recalled. And slowly the democrat reps will be recalled or be fired. I am a senior citizen, so I am very concerned, however, they try to confiscate my concealed weapon, they will not find it here.Damn democrats, can’t stand any of them.
