A BILL CREATING A LETHAL ORDER OF PROTECTION IS HEADED TO THE GOVERNOR’S DESK.
 
THE GOAL OF THE LEGISLATION IS TO SET UP A PROCESS FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO FOLLOW IF THEY BELIEVE A LOVED ONE POSES A VIOLENT THREAT TO THEMSELVES OR OTHERS. UNDER THE ORDER…A JUDGE COULD ORDER POLICE TO TEMPORARILY TAKE THAT PERSON’S GUNS AWAY IF WARRANTED. THE MEASURE HAS UNDERGONE SEVERAL REVISIONS BUT SENATOR BILL HAINE OF ALTON SAYS HE THINKS THEY GOT IT RIGHT THIS TIME.
 

 

 
A HEARING WOULD HAVE TO BE HELD WITHIN 14 DAYS OF THE ORDER BEING ISSUED. IT’S NOW UP TO THE GOVERNOR TO SIGN THIS INTO LAW.
