On Thursday, the nation witnessed what happens when a man of principle, integrity, and dignity clashes with Washington, D.C.’s political hit machine. U.S. Circuit Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh presented a scorching defense of his record and his character after Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sprung last-minute accusations to try to derail what seemed like Kavanaugh’s likely confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. Now, your U.S. Senators need to hear from YOU to ensure he is seated on the nation’s highest court when it begins its next session in October. Politely but firmly tell them you stand with Judge Kavanaugh and demand a “yes” vote on his confirmation.

New Report on California “Gun Violence Restraining Order” Law

Fri, 09/28/2018 - 13:45
 California law, AB 1014, allows a family member or law enforcement officer to obtain a court order – a “gun violence restraining order” (GVRO) – against another person. The order requires the mandatory confiscation, by local law enforcement, of all firearms the restrained person owns, possesses, or has access to. A temporary or emergency order is issued without notice or the opportunity to contest the order by the affected person, and is effective for 21 days pending a second court hearing. At this full hearing, where the affected person has a right to appear and answer the allegations, the court may either terminate the 21-day order or extend the gun ban by issuing a one-year GVRO. A court may renew such one-year orders indefinitely, leading to a potential lifetime gun ban. A restrained person who violates a GVRO commits a criminal offense and, in addition to the other penalties, faces an additional, mandatory five-year gun ban, which begins to run once the existing GVRO expires.
