The peace officer must have probable cause (specifically defined in the law) to request the order. The respondent will have a hearing and an evaluation. The evaluation must happen within 72 hours (not counting weekends and holidays) of their being admitted to the evaluation agency. The respondent is guaranteed a hearing within 14 days of the completion of the evaluation.

I have no qualms whatsoever with law enforcement taking action, including the temporary confiscation of firearms, from someone who presents a high probability of committing a violent act against themselves or others provided the subject also gets a fair hearing on the matter, a reasonable evaluation of their mental state and the opportunity to respond to the claims made against them. While I understand that such a law could be abused that is a different matter and should be addressed if or when such abuse occurs.Tell me how they define "probable cause" and if it’s reasonable, I might be okay with it. There’s also the question of who does the eval/hearing.

One cannot use the "they will abuse it" unless it actually occurs and if that happens the courts will deal with it.

This seems like other civil asset forfeiture laws which place the burden of proof on the accused who may later at their own expense seek to challenge the state’s action. Due process means that one may only be sentenced after a finding of guilt – not that one may at their own expense seek to either have their confiscated property or its fair market value returned to them.
