Are not American citizens guaranteed the right of due process of law and the right to face our accusers, along with the right not to jailed without being charged with a crime?

If weak-minded politicians get their way, all of those rights will be taken away and law-abiding citizens will be jailed and have their guns confiscated without any formal charges or due process of law.

Arizona’s Republican governor, Doug Ducey, is pushing a bill similar to some in other states that allows for the confiscation of one’s firearms if anyone, including family, deem the person a threat to anyone. Only, Ducey’s bill goes one step further, allowing for the jailing of the person for up to 21 days for a mental evaluation, without any criminal charges or due process of law.

(Arizona Capitol Times) – Gov. Doug Ducey is doubling down on his push for a law to let judges take guns from some people considered “dangerous” even though it was that provision that killed pretty much his entire school safety plan earlier this year.

“I think the STOP plan — the Severe Threat Order of Protection — is the crown jewel of our safe schools plan,” the governor said Wednesday when questioned by Capitol Media Services. It would set up a procedure to allow not just police but family members and others to seek a court order to have law enforcement take an individual’s weapons while he or she is locked up for up to 21 days for a mental evaluation.

“It’s the one tool that could have eliminated the mass shootings that have happened in other places in the country,” Ducey said.

Senate Republicans approved the proposal earlier this year, but only after removing the provision to allow family members, guidance counselors and school administrators to refer to courts people they consider dangerous to themselves or others…

It’s time for Arizona’s Republicans to launch a recall of Ducey and work to vote him out of office. Such a law is a direct violation of a person’s constitutional right. Under this kind of law, a vengeful or angry loved one, family member or friend could declare someone as a threat and the next thing you know, that person is locked up without charges and probably lose his or her job as well as his or her guns. A rebellious child could do this to a parent out of spite.
