Proposed Federal House Legislation HB6395

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

This legislation would authorize, in §542, would create and authorize emergency Military Court Gun Confiscation Orders (GCO's), which are explicitly exempted from the "Protection of Due Process" provided for in 542(g)(1), and would allow for ex parte “court” proceedings (§542(i)) that could be initiated by virtually anyone including a friend or relation and be based on unsubstantiated allegations.

These allegations would allow the court to seize firearms unilaterally without further legal protections for one’s civil rights.
