new text end

new text begin (a) Upon issuance of an extreme risk protection order, the court shall direct the respondent
to transfer any firearms the person possesses as soon as reasonably practicable, but in no
case later than 24 hours, to a federally licensed firearms dealer or a law enforcement agency.
If the respondent elects to transfer the respondent's firearms to a law enforcement agency,
the agency must accept the transfer. The transfer may be permanent or temporary. A
temporary firearm transfer only entitles the receiving party to possess the firearm and does
not transfer ownership or title. If the respondent makes a temporary transfer, a federally
licensed firearms dealer or law enforcement agency may charge the respondent a reasonable
fee to store the firearms and may establish policies for disposal of abandoned firearms,
provided these policies require that the respondent be notified prior to disposal of abandoned
firearms. If a respondent permanently transfers the respondent's firearms to a law enforcement
agency, the agency is not required to compensate the respondent and may charge the
respondent a reasonable processing fee.

new text begin (b) The respondent must file proof of transfer as provided in this paragraph.
new text end

new text begin (1) A law enforcement agency or federally licensed firearms dealer accepting transfer
of a firearm pursuant to this section shall provide proof of transfer to the respondent. The
proof of transfer must specify whether the firearms were permanently or temporarily
transferred and must include the name of the respondent, date of transfer, and the serial
number, manufacturer, and model of all transferred firearms. If transfer is made to a federally
licensed firearms dealer, the respondent shall, within two business days after being served
with the order, file a copy of proof of transfer with the law enforcement agency, and attest
that all firearms owned or possessed at the time of the order have been transferred in
accordance with this section and that the person currently does not possess any firearms. If
the respondent claims not to own or possess firearms, the respondent shall file a declaration
of nonpossession with the law enforcement agency attesting that, at the time of the order,
the respondent neither owned nor possessed any firearms, and that the respondent currently
neither owns nor possesses any firearms.
new text end

new text begin (2) The court shall seal affidavits, proofs of transfer, and declarations of nonpossession
filed pursuant to this paragraph.
new text end

new text begin (c) If a court issues an emergency order under section 624.7174, or makes a finding of
immediate and present danger under section 624.7172, subdivision 2, paragraph (e), and
there is probable cause to believe the respondent possesses firearms, the court shall issue a
search warrant to the local law enforcement agency to take possession of all firearms in the
respondent's possession as soon as practicable. The local law enforcement agency shall,
upon written notice from the respondent, transfer the firearms to a federally licensed firearms
dealer. Before a local law enforcement agency transfers a firearm under this paragraph, the
agency shall require the federally licensed firearms dealer receiving the firearm to submit
a proof of transfer that complies with the requirements for proofs of transfer established in
paragraph (b). The agency shall file all proofs of transfer received by the court within two
business days of the transfer. A federally licensed firearms dealer who accepts a firearm
transfer pursuant to this paragraph shall comply with paragraphs (a) and (b) as if accepting
transfer directly from the respondent. If the law enforcement agency does not receive written
notice from the respondent within three business days, the agency may charge a reasonable
fee to store the respondent's firearms. A law enforcement agency may establish policies for
disposal of abandoned firearms, provided these policies require that the respondent be
notified prior to disposal of abandoned firearms.
