Effective January 1, 2024, Minnesota law allows certain people to request an order from the court to prohibit someone from purchasing or possessing a firearm. This type of order is called an Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO). Although the term is not used in the Minnesota law, laws that authorize these types of orders are often called “red flag” laws. An ERPO may be issued if a person poses a significant danger of bodily harm to others and/or is at significant risk of suicide if they possess a firearm. Presenter Rana Alexander, Esq. of Standpoint will explain the new law as well as how it will be handled by the courts and law enforcement. This session will help you to better explain this new protection order to victims and help them through the process of filing and enforcing it.
This webinar is free for all to attend. The webinar will be recorded and the recording will be made available exclusively for MAC members.
