This week, Rep. Lucy McBath (GA-07) spearheaded an effort to force a vote on the Federal Extreme Risk Protection Order (FERPO) Act.

Joining her were Mike Thompson (CA-04), Chair of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force; Assistant Democratic Leader Joe Neguse (CO-02); Congressman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott, Ranking Member of the Committee on Education and the Workforce; and Congresswoman Robin Kelly (IL-02).

McBath introduced a discharge petition for bill H.R.3018, aiming to mandate a House vote on this controversial, gun confiscation legislation. 

This marks the fourth such effort in the 118th Congress to advance legislation through discharge petitions, following attempts to outlaw so-called “assault weapons” and criminal private transfers. 

“Today’s announcement marks the next step in our mission to save as many lives as possible through common-sense policies,” Rep. Lucy McBath said. 

“Extreme risk protection orders are already saving lives in Republican and Democratic states, allowing law enforcement and family members to intervene before it’s too late,” she continued. 

“My bill will expand these protections from coast to coast and give every American another tool to keep their communities safe. Our ‘gun-sense’ Democratic Caucus will continue to pursue every legislative solution we can to save lives,” McBath concluded. 

Under House rules, a discharge motion can be made on the Floor and voted on once a petition collects 218 signatures.

If that threshold is reached, the bill would not need support from GOP leadership. 

The FERPO Act allows law enforcement and relatives to request a judicial order to confiscate firearms from individuals accused of being a threat to themselves or others. 

Currently, 21 states along with the District of Columbia have implemented similar statutes.
