A new law can help!

Illinois’ Firearms Restraining Order is a law that allows family members and law enforcement officers to obtain a court order to prevent an at-risk person from accessing firearms, and temporarily prohibits that person from purchasing or obtaining any new firearms. The firearm removal can last from 14 days to six months depending on the type of order. Orders can be renewed before it expires if the danger still exists.

Note: If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please contact local law enforcement or dial 911. Illinois’ veteran crisis line is also available by calling 1-800 273-8255 and pressing 1.
