Provides for the temporary surrender of firearms to the police by any person
who is taken into custody by the police for the purpose of a mental examination
and prior to an examination ordered pursuant to article seven hundred thirty of
the criminal procedure law; requires a "cooling off period" following the
discharge from psychiatric care during which time firearms, which came into
police custody during the person's prehospitalization intervention or during
hospitalization, may be kept in police custody for thirty days, or after a
psychiatric examiner has determined whether the person is a threat to himself
or herself or others; provides that a judge of the local jurisdiction may order
an early return of the firearms if he or she determines that it would be
appropriate to do so.
