Inslee signed House Bill 1840 on Friday, and it takes effect Dec. 1.
The bill allows the subject of such a restraining order to be required give up his or her guns after a hearing if a judge rules that person is a credible threat.
Sen. Mike Padden said the bill complies with both the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the stronger protections for having firearms in the state constitution.
