Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that a person who is not a federally licensed firearm dealer and who desires to transfer or sell a firearm while that person is on the grounds of a gun show must, prior to the sale or transfer of the firearm, request the Department of State Police to conduct a background check on the prospective recipient of the firearm. Provides that if the receipt of a firearm does not violate federal or State law, the Department of State Police shall (1) assign a unique number to the transfer; (2) provide the licensee, gun show promoter, or gun show vendor with the number; and (3) destroy all records of the system with respect to the call, other than the identifying number and the date the number was assigned, and all records of the system relating to the person or the transfer within 24 hours. Provides that the Department of State Police may not retain, copy, or distribute any such information previously collected. Provides that if the transfer of a firearm is denied by the Department of State Police, the Department may keep the records of a denial until the denial is appealed and overturned, or as long as necessary for a criminal prosecution. Provides that approvals issued by the Department of State Police for the purchase of a firearm are valid for 30 days from the date of issue. Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that the waiting period for obtaining a firearm after its purchase does not apply to the sale of a firearm at a gun show. Effective immediately.
