Stop Oregon S.B. 719

This petition had 103 supporters

Senate Bill 719 is a direct infringement of a person's rights and must be stopped immediately. Please share this to everyone you know and help spread the word. 

As a law-abiding Second Amendment supporter in Oregon, I urge everyone to please oppose Senate Bill 719A.

SB 719A would create a so-called "Extreme Risk Protection Order" (ERPO) that could be obtained by a law enforcement officer, family member, or household member in an ex parte hearing to deprive someone of their Second Amendment rights without due process of the law.

By allowing a law enforcement officer, family member, or household member to seek the ERPO, SB 719A would allow people who are not mental health professionals, who may be mistaken, and who may only have minimal contact with the respondent to file a petition with the court and testify on the respondent's state of mind. This ex parte order, which strips the accused of their Second Amendment rights, would be issued by a judge based on the brief statement of the petitioner. The accused would not be afforded the chance to appear in court to defend themselves against the allegations when the ERPO is issued. These orders may be issued without any allegations of criminal behavior.

Again, as a fellow law abiding citizen, I urge you to please oppose SB 719A. Thank you.
