What is A Risk Protection Order?
A risk protection order is a court order that requires someone who is deemed “at risk” to surrender their firearms to the authorities. The person must also give up their license to carry a concealed weapon.
A risk protection order is defined in Florida Statute 790.401 and is intended to temporarily prevent individuals who are at high risk of harming themselves or others from accessing firearms or ammunition. Law enforcement officers are allowed to obtain a court order when there is demonstrated evidence that a person poses a significant danger to themselves or those around them.
LENGTH OF RISK PROTECTION ORDERS IN SOUTH FLORIDA
Individuals under a risk protection order cannot purchase or possess firearms or ammunition for the period of time specified by the court. The length of a risk protection order differs case by case. The maximum time for a risk protection order is one year, though it may be extended by the court if they evaluate and decide that is best for the individual and the safety of the public.
