HB1177, the Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO), is currently working its way through the legislative process in the Statehouse. This bill outlines a process for firearms to be removed from the possession of an individual based solely on the reports of an interested person. In its current form, this bill does not allow for Due Process for the individual. The Resolution includes information about a state statute currently available that addresses the situation that the ERPO attempts to resolve, the Douglas County Mental Health Initiative and the pledge of County Commissioners to only fund the enforcement of duly enacted state laws that include the rights to due process, bear arms and defense from evil.
