Report: New Extreme Risk Protection Order Recommendations for Policy and Implementation
Oct 28, 2020
The report, “Extreme Risk Protection Orders: New Recommendations for Policy and Implementation,” was produced by the Consortium for Risk-Based Firearm Policy, which developed the original ERPO concept in 2013 in the aftermath of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Conn. The Consortium based its new recommendations on the latest research and an examination of the 19 states and the District of Columbia which have enacted versions of the law. The orders, which if approved by a judge, allow for the temporary removal of guns when a person poses an immediate threat to themself or others, are being used in those states to help prevent suicides, mass shootings and other types of interpersonal gun violence.
