Actually, They Weren't Even Heard
Several bills that addressed various aspects of firearm violence were proposed last legislative session. None were successful. In fact, a quick perusal of the bills will reveal to you that none were even given a hearing. Sad state of affairs, don't you think?
SB 1219 Domestic Violence Offenses & Firearm Transfer (Carter)
Persons that have been adjudicated and the court rules that they may not possess a firearm must surrender their firearms to a law enforcement agency. The law enforcement agency may then dispose of the firearm(s) in accordance with law. People that have an Order of Protection against them must also surrender their firearms, although the law enforcement agency must return the firearm when the Order expires (after a background check).
HB 2247 Bump Stocks (Friese)
HB 2248 Firearm Sales (Friese)
HB 2161 Order of Protection (Hernandez)
A person who is at least 18 years of age and who is either a law enforcement officer, a “family or household member” (defined), a school administrator or teacher or a licensed behavioral health professional who has personal knowledge that the respondent is a danger to self or others is permitted to file a verified petition in the superior court for a one-year Severe Threat Order of Protection (STOP order), which prohibits the respondent from owning, purchasing, possessing or receiving or having in the respondent’s custody or control a firearm or ammunition for up to one year.
HB 2249 Mental Health and Firearm Possession (Friese)
An immediate family member or a peace officer is authorized to file a verified petition with a magistrate, justice of the peace or superior court judge for an injunction that prohibits a person from possessing, controlling, owning or receiving a firearm. Any court may issue or enforce a mental health injunction against firearm possession, regardless of the location of the person. Information that must be included in the petition is specified. If the court finds that there is clear and convincing evidence to issue a mental health injunction against firearm possession, the court must issue the injunction. Information that must be included in the injunction is specified.
