Rep. Steve Handy (R)


HB 229 (Extreme Risk Protection Order)

Libertas Institute opposes this bill.

This bill creates a process in which a court may order the forcible removal of a person's firearms based on an ex parte order in which the firearm owner may not defend themselves against the allegations.

Libertas opposes this bill. An individual’s right to keep and bear arms should not be undermined through an ex parte order, violating the presumption of innocence that persons should maintain in order to have their rights preserved.
