Permits a law enforcement officer to search a person convicted of violating certain temporary restraining orders or protective orders, including the person's motor vehicle and the person's residence, for firearms without obtaining a search warrant if the law enforcement officer has reason to believe acts of abuse, malicious property damage, or harassment by the person are imminent. Specifies that a seized firearm shall not be used for a subsequent conviction if the original search lacked probable cause but authorizes law enforcement to maintain the firearm until the registered owner can prove the firearm will be safely stored.
