SACRAMENTO—Assemblymember Evan Low’s (D-Silicon Valley) legislation to restrict firearm possession among people admitted under multiple 5150 holds, an involuntary psychiatric hold for individuals at risk of harming themselves or others, was signed by the Governor today.

AB 1968 will remove the firearms of someone who has been placed on a 5150 hold twice in one year and prohibits the admitting facility from filling out the petition form on the individual’s behalf. The individual could still petition the court for a hearing to have his or her guns returned.
