Soviet Style Gun Bill Surfaces In Oregon

floyd-prozanski-06012015 copyLeonid Brezhnev would be proud of Floyd Prozanski, Oregon’s leading anti gun state senator. Not content with passing the grandiose “universal background check” bill last year that was supposed to solve all of the world’s problems, Prozanski has now introduced a bill that would allow people to declare someone to be having a “mental health emergency”, which would result in a 30 day “hold” being placed on the accused’s ability to purchase a firearm. The accused would not even know they are on the no-buy list, as they would not be informed of the accusation unless they tried to purchase a firearm and go through the background check process. The accuser’s name would not be available to the accused. Worse yet, “mental health emergency” is not defined, and is largely arbitrary.

LC 250 was formally introduced on Friday, January 15th. The bill is officially sponsored by the entire Senate judiciary committee, which Prozansky chairs, because the legislators themselves are limited 2 bills each for the upcoming short, 35 day session. By introducing it as a “committee” sponsored bill, the party in control can use this as a loophole to introduce however many bills they want.

If someone ends up on the no-buy list, and they want to get their 2nd Amendment rights back, they would have to pay out of their own pocket to see a health care provider or petition the courts in order to be declared “not a threat”, then they have to take that documentation to the state police firearms unit. The bill would limit the hold to 30 days, but there’s nothing that prevents the secret accuser from filing another accusation.

Oregon Firearms Federation calls LC 250 “maybe the most dangerous gun bill ever”.

From the OFF Website:

As you know, this bill will allow totally unqualified people to make anonymous accusations against others and claim those people are experiencing “mental health emergencies.” Those people lose their rights to buy a firearm.

These accusations will not be investigated, the accused will not know the accusation has been made unless they try to buy a gun nor will they be allowed to know who their accuser is or how long their rights will be suspended.

If they choose to challenge the accusations, they assume the full burden of proving they are not mentally ill and all of the expense.

The Committee approved the bill on a 1 to three vote. All Democrats voted yes, Senator Thatcher voted no and Senator Jeff Kruse is recovering from surgery and was absent.

The Democrats are:

Floyd Prozanski [email protected]

Sara Gelser  [email protected] 

Diane Rosenbaum [email protected]

The Republican who voted to protect your rights is:

Senator Kim Thatcher [email protected]  

Today’s vote was not a vote to pass the bill out of committee. It was to formally introduce the draft as a bill.  The next step will be actual hearings on the bill during the coming session in February.

It is interesting to note that another draft is being considered. This is LC 217 which establishes a tip hotline to report threats to students such as “cyber bullying.”  That proposed legislation would require that any tip be investigated to determine if it is authentic. LC 250 provides no such protection for people who will lose their gun rights.

We will continue to monitor this legislation as it moves through the system. Be prepared to take action and contact your legislators who can be found here.

Prozanski, who also serves as a Lane county prosecutor, does not see this as a violation of due process rights, and makes the excuse that person accused can just pay money to the state to be declared innocent. He told KXL radio that the bill will be heard during the first week of the session, which starts in early February.

    That isn’t the only example:

    ATLANTA —A bill banning certain guns described as assault weapons by the bill’s author is sparking controversy in Georgia.

    The new bill was introduced by State Representative Mary Oliver, from Decatur, and it has the support of 15 Democrats who signed the bill.

    Hear from gun rights advocates who say there is no room to compromise with the Second Amendment in our live report on Channel 2 Action News at 6.

    Not only does this ban the sale of certain guns, but people who own the guns banned by this bill would have to turn them over to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.

      “In Washington, more people die from firearm-related deaths than from motor vehicle crashes each year…”

      BAHAHAHAHA! What a dumbass. The number isn’t greater, it’s equal. Stay out of SW WA. Perpetual road construction and antique vehicles are just as dangerous as all the antique malfunctioning firearms. These laws will never pass. The trees aren’t the only reason we’re called Evergreen.

      • Torcer says

        This maybe true…

        I’m mainly posting those to illustrate that the mask has fallen off the gun grabbers and those lists are a great retort for whence they scramble to put it back on.

    June 2014
    “A couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it – we’re not seeing that again. And basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws.”

    October 2015
    “We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours – Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours.”

    Gotta love these “lists”. No due process. And the justification is always “If it saves just one life”.

    So why not mandatory mental health testing? The lock up everyone who is dangerous before they can hurt anyone. If it saves just one life…

    Heck, why not use statistics? The NAACP’s own website cites statistics that half of all black men have served jail time before they are 40 years old. Lock up all black men until they are 40 years old and prevent the half that are criminally predisposed from committing crimes. If it saves just one life…

    That cliff gets pretty steep really quick.

    These “lists” need to be gotten rid of. We don;t want a “No Fly List”, we want an “incarcerated Terrorist List”.

    ORE-GONE..the entire state has the “Intellect and Work Ethic” of a fkg TREE STUMP..The LIEberals in this (D)eliveance 2.0 (D)isaster are ABSOLUTELY INSANE…

  5. Eric Palmer says

    Oregon already does this with their drivers licenses. Real, non-criminal and non-insane should not fear a 30 day hold (one waits 10 days already…why not 20 more to be safe?)……and yes it could have prevented several of the recent mass shootings. Gun rights advocates blame the person and not the gun for the violence…..this addresses the mantra of the gun rights advocates in that it IS the person and not the gun that it addresses. Only criminals and the mentally unstable would not support denying mentally ill people easy access to weapons. Those who are not flagged as mentally ill would still get all the weapons they want. Seems like only the mentally ill and the criminal would fear this?

      1st driving is a privilege not a right. More importantly the problem with this bill, is that the potential for people to abuse this by making false accusations is high, with no reprucussions for the false accuser. And no remedial action for the falsely accused to get back the cost of having to pay for their rights to be restored.
      Medical professionals, lawyers, and mental health professionals already are bound by law to report if you are a threat to yourself or others.
      This bill let’s anyone make the accusation. So for example, say you piss off your neighbor and they try to get code enforcement to harass you, but code enforcement investigates and finds nothing. They may decide to call in a false accusation just because they can. And then you have to pay to have your rights restored. But can’t sue the false accuser (who is anonymous) to get the money back.

      Guess you never heard of due process or the Bill of Rights. People who think like you are guilty of destroying our country. Treason doth prosper when none dare call it treason. You speak tyranny fluently!

    • missek says

      LMFAO Oregon don’t have a 10 days waiting period for a drivers license..

      For Oregon drivers license you’re granted an interim license at the DMV. You will then be receiving your permanent license in the mail within 10 days.
      The interim card allows you to drive while you wait for your permanent card, You IDIOT.

      And you have the Right to own guns it’s not a privilege. In Oregon you have up to 72hr wait for the background check. If Firearms Instant Check System (FICS) can’t find anything on you in 72hrs they will NEVER find anything on you in the state of Oregon.

      And Oregon has Mental Health Reporting. The only thing Oregon needs is to be able to check other states for mental illness but the privacy act prevents that.
      If Oregon was able to check other states it would have prevented the Umpqua Community College shooter from obtaining a gun in Oregon that had mental illness reported in California.

      Obviously you don’t live in Oregon duo to you don’t know our laws. Or you’re really flipping retarded.

      BTW numb nuts criminals and mentally ill DON’T follow laws, they dont usually go for background checks.

      ONLY criminals and the mentally ill WOULD Support stricter gun laws, Gives them MORE victims while they already break the Laws. like breaking the gun free zone law..breaking into homes all all those criminal activities they dont like to follow the laws on.

    I would hope some of our NRA membership dues is going for litigation to challenge all of his infringement Bills and proposals. Taking anyone’s Constitutional rights without due process is un -Constitutional and is Un-American. Its best to vote this gun grabbing fascist out, the next election. No one can afford to sit-it-out. Don’t comply.

  7. trigon500 says

    We need to do this because Jewish Bolshevism, their gun grabs & murder of tens of millions of Christians in the Soviet Union was so cool!

  8. trigon500 says

    The best that these leftwing control freaks (most of whom are Jews) can expect as far as gun grabs is in a couple of states like OR.
    Lots of ‘effing luck getting this krap passed in TX, FL, PA, MS, GA, TN, SC, NC, AZ, VA etc, etc.

    No problem just make sure that those around Prozanski are disarmed too. Then all are equal….Oh thats not what he wants?? Neither does Piglosi and Swinestein.

    What part of the Fith Amendment is he having problems interpreting?

    Amendment V

    No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
