The amount of room for abuse in this process should have every gun owner in Missouri alarmed. Consider the following:
>>> These gun seizure orders will be issued before you have been convicted,
or even charged, with anything!
A gun owner with absolutely no criminal background of any kind, can have his firearms seized before he ever sets foot in a courtroom. You would have more due process rights in traffic court than you would in defending your constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
>>> The hearing that determines whether or not to strip you of your firearms happen in secret!
Known as ex-parte proceedings, these hearings take place in your absence. You will have no ability to question your accuser, provide your own evidence, or testify in your own defense. In fact, the first time you will be made aware of this is when law enforcement officers come to your home to seize your firearms.
>>> These seizure orders will amount to a lifetime gun ban, as the petitioner or the judge can renew this seizure order every 6 months!
We all know that this is what will happen, that gun grabbers will use this tool to
disarm gun owners for a lifetime, without any criminal conviction of any kind.
That’s why I need every gun owner in the state to fire off your email immediately, to make sure that lawmakers know that gun owners are mobilized and engaged and willing to hold anti-gun lawmakers accountable.
Remember, these advocacy programs are automatic, meaning it’s never been easier for you to take action.
And when you’ve sent in your email,
please also consider a donation to help the Missouri Firearms Coalition mobilize as many gun owners as possible against this bill.
