After two successive vetoes by a Democratic governor, California has enacted a law that allows coworkers, teachers, and employers to initiate the firearm confiscation process. Red flag laws are yet another step in the progressive infringement scheme that the globalists are using to circumvent the Second Amendment.
One of the bills, which expands a so-called “red flag” law to allow co-workers, employers and educators to seek gun violence restraining orders against firearms owners they fear are a danger to themselves and others, was vetoed twice by Newsom’s predecessor, Jerry Brown.
Newsom also signed a companion bill allowing the gun violence restraining orders to last one and five years, although the gun owners could petition to end those restrictions earlier. The bill also allows judges to issue search warrants at the same time as they grant the orders. The warrants can be used immediately if the gun owners are served with the relinquishment orders but fail to turn over the firearms or ammunition.
After 2 tries, CA is expanding its #RedFlagLaw! The Gov signed my bill, #AB61, allowing educators, employers & co-workers to file a Gun Violence Restraining Order to temporarily take away someone’s firearms if they pose a danger. Police & family can already do so. #GVRO pic.twitter.com/W7dFemC97r
