Can You Be Restricted from Owning a Firearm as a Result of an Order of Protection in Arizona?
Firearm Ownership Restricted Due to an Order of Protection
Some people have asked us the question can you be restricted from owning a firearm as a result of an Order of Protection in Arizona.
The short answer is yes.
A judge may order a defendant to turn over his or her firearms if the judge finds the defendant poses a credible threat to the plaintiff or other protected persons.
The person subject to such an order must surrender his or her firearms to a local law enforcement agency.
You may, however, request the return of your firearms after the protective order expires or may seek a hearing to overturn the Order of Protection before that order expires to allow you to obtain the return of your firearms.
You should, however, consult with an attorney because there are serious implications to your right to possess any firearm should you request a hearing on the Order of Protection and you lose.
