Extreme Risk Protection Orders

An Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO), also known as a red flag law, is an order from a judge that suspends a person’s license to possess or carry a gun.

An ERPO directs a person to surrender their license to possess/carry a gun and any firearms, rifles, shotguns, machine guns, stun guns, or ammunition that they possess, control, or own. Find out who can request an order and how to get one.
