(FE). Under current law, a person is prohibited from possessing a firearm and must surrender any firearm he or she currently possesses if he or she is subject to a domestic abuse injunction, a child abuse injunction, or, if the court determines that he or she may use a firearm to harm another or endanger public safety, a harassment injunction (injunction). A person who is subject to an injunction may surrender his 2009 - 2010 Legislature ASSEMBLY BILL 559 or her firearm to a sheriff or to a third party approved by the court and is guilty of a Class G felony if convicted of possessing a firearm while subject to the injunction. This bill creates a procedure for notifying a person of the prohibition against possessing a firearm and of the requirement to surrender any firearm when the person is served with a petition for an injunction hearing. The bill also creates a procedure for surrendering firearms if the court grants an injunction. If the person who is subject to the injunction (respondent) is present at the injunction hearing, he or she may provide the court with a completed firearm possession form, which is a form that requests information such as the quantity and the make and model of any firearms he or she owns or possesses or has owned or possessed in the previous six months. If the respondent is not present at the injunctive hearing, the court must provide the petitioner with the opportunity to state if the respondent possesses a firearm and, if so, the quantity and make and model of any firearm. If the court is not satisfied that the respondent does not possess a firearm, a firearm surrender hearing must take place within one week of the injunction hearing. If, subject to certain conditions, the respondent surrenders all firearms to the sheriff or to a third party within 48 hours, the court must dismiss the firearm surrender hearing unless the court has a reason related to the surrender of firearms not to dismiss the hearing.
