I live in Oregon. The legislature passed a bill allowing for gun confiscation based only on an accusation of instability. Governor Kate Brown signed it in August 2017, after pushing passage.
No due process. No charges have to be filed. There is no opportunity to defend yourself or face your accusers. A judge can hear the accusations in private, make a ruling, deploy the police, and your property can be confiscated on the spot. You are presumed guilty.
At your own expense you can prove your innocence, and after a year, you might have your property returned, maybe.
It is thoroughly unconstitutional. There is no guarantee the courts will throw it out. Most courts are biased left, so, the rule of law and the Constitution are negotiable, which means they are expendable.
Of course, it was sold as the only way to prevent psychos from shooting people and was rammed through as an emergency measure. In truth it will do nothing to prevent criminals from getting guns. It will only impede and threaten law abiding citizens, eventually rendering them defenseless.
A petition drive to repeal the law failed.
Welcome to the expanded police state where pressure is brought to bear on law-abiding people, in a newly declared sanctuary state, where illegality is celebrated to the point of endangering the public, an increasingly disarmed public, in Oregon.
