Floor Schedule and Procedure:

H.R. 2377Federal Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2022 (Rep. McBath – Judiciary)

This package establishes nationwide access to extreme risk protection orders through federal courts to ensure that those who pose a threat to themselves or others do not have access to firearms.

 

This bill permits law enforcement officers, family, and household members of a person to file a petition requesting that a federal court issue an extreme risk protection order (ERPO) to prohibit an individual from purchasing or possessing a firearm. Individuals subject to this order must surrender their firearms and ammunition and are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms until the order expires. When the order expires and the individual passes a background check, any surrendered firearms or ammunition are returned. The bill protects the right to lawfully possess a gun through high standards of proof, an opportunity to be heard, the right to counsel, and penalties for those who file frivolous petitions. The bill also encourages more states to adopt these laws and requires law enforcement to be trained in the use of ERPOs.
