Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Mental health treatment; report to CCRE; restoration of rights to possess firearms. Codifies Executive Order 50, requiring information regarding involuntary admission to a facility or for mandatory outpatient treatment be forwarded to the Central Criminal Records Exchange for purposes of determining an individual's eligibility to possess, purchase, or transfer a firearm.

The bill also makes substantive changes to who may possess, purchase, or transfer a firearm. In addition to those ordered to involuntary treatment pursuant to Title 37.2, the bill makes it illegal for a person found incompetent to stand trial and ordered to mental health treatment to possess or purchase a firearm. The bill also makes it illegal for a person who was the subject of a temporary detention order, and subsequently agreed to voluntarily admission for mental health treatment, to possess or purchase a firearm. Such person would be advised that agreeing to voluntary treatment would affect the person's right to possess or purchase a firearm.

Finally, the bill revises the procedures for a person prohibited from possessing or purchasing a firearm because of an acquittal by reason of insanity, involuntary mental health treatment, or voluntary mental health treatment after a temporary detention order to restore his rights to purchase or possess a firearm. This bill incorporates HB 535, HB 657, HB 741, HB 835, HB 1054, HB 1168, HB 1475, and HB 1517.
