The Michigan House of Representatives passed legislation in support of instituting extreme risk protection orders (ERPOs), which would temporarily prohibit the possession and purchase of firearms by those who pose significant danger to themselves or others. House Bills 41454148 would allow courts to issue extreme risk protection orders, or ERPOs, if, after a full hearing, the court determines that the accused “can reasonably be expected within the near future to intentionally or unintentionally seriously physically injure themselves or others by possessing a firearm.” 

As of 2021, 19 states and the District of Columbia have enacted some form of ERPO laws, which are supported by most Americans. HBs 4145-48 have the support of the Michigan State Police, the Fraternal Order of Police, the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association, the Michigan Chiefs of Police and a majority of gun owners.
