Who can get a firearms seizure order?

Only a state’s attorney, an assistant state’s attorney, or two law enforcement officers must file the complaint for removal of a person’s firearms or ammunition.1

If you are a person who is concerned about the safety of someone else but cannot file to have his/her firearms removed, you may be able to speak to police or the state’s attorney’s office to let them know of your concern and ask that they file a complaint to have the firearms removed.
