My bill, HB 5597 (see below) and several amendments I introduced during yesterday's debate, resolved these Constitutional violations by using the Risk Warrant Statute through the criminal court. If a victim is beaten and threatened with death or is in immediate danger from a domestic abuser, the victim should be given the option of having the police investigate and obtain a warrant to seize the abuser's firearms without the delay (and unconstitutional lack of due process) associated with the civil TRO system.
My bill protects all domestic violence victims while protecting the Constitutional rights of both parties. The Democtrats' bill puts some domestic violence victims at increased risk by violating their Constitutional rights to disarm them.
Unfortunately, the Democrats defeated all of my amendments and passed their dangerous bill. I will post the video of some of the debate shortly.
