On January 1, 2019, the Firearms Restraining Order Act went into effect. This allows family members, “intimate partners”, or police to ask a judge to temporarily remove guns from someone they think may be a threat to themselves or others. Forms approved for this process can be found at https://www.illinoiscourts.gov/documents-and-forms/.
