HB 1337 (2024)

Shift rights towards defendants of domestic violence protection orders to possess firearms


Shifts the burden to a domestic violence plaintiff to file a request for a hearing prior to the expiration of a protective order, otherwise any firearm, ammunition or deadly weapons will be returned to the defendant. The bill repeals a prohibition that law enforcement shall not release firearms, ammunition or deadly weapons without a court order and prevents law enforcement from charging a reasonable fee for the storage costs of firearms, ammunition or deadly weapons. This bill also makes law enforcement liable for damages to any firearm, ammunition or deadly weapons during the course of storage or transportation.
