In January, 2019, Nebraska Senator Adam Morfeld introduced LB 58, a bill called the “Extreme Risk Protection Order Act,” which is aimed at confiscating firearms from individuals deemed a “significant risk” of harming themselves or others. The Act is similar to the widely known and publicized red flag laws, which are named so because they remove firearms from an individual who has exhibited “red flags” commonly associated with acts of violence.

An extreme risk protection order (“ERPO”) is an order issued by a county or district court requiring an individual to forfeit any firearms, concealed carry permits, or certificates for the purchase or transfer of a handgun to the government.

Alt hough the law may have good intentions, these laws have been controversial from both a practical and constitutional standpoint. 

Berry Law Firm opposes LB 58 because the proposed Extreme Risk Protection Order Act can be detrimental to lawful firearm owners. Not only does the act infringe upon due process rights regarding the fundamental constitutional right to bear arms, but it is an attempt to solve a problem that already has adequate solutions under Nebraska Law.
