Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Modifies definition of "clear and present danger". Provides that an applicant for the issuance or renewal of a Firearm Owner's Identification Card shall include a full set of his or her fingerprints in electronic format to the Illinois State Police, unless the applicant has previously provided a full set of his or her fingerprints to the Illinois State Police under the Act or the Firearm Concealed Carry Act. Provides that a Firearm Owner's Identification Card issued under the Act shall be valid for the person to whom it is issued for a period of 5 years (rather than 10 years) from the date of issuance, but provides that any person whose card was previously issued for a period of 10 years shall retain the 10-year issuance period until the next date of renewal, at which point the card shall be renewed for 5 years. Provides that any transfer of a surrendered firearm must be conducted under the firearm transfer provisions of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that the Firearm Disposition Record shall contain a statement to be signed by the transferee that the transferee: (1) is aware of, and will abide by, current law regarding the unlawful transfer of a firearm; (2) is aware of the penalties for violating the law as it pertains to unlawful transfer of a firearm; and (3) intends to retain possession of the firearm or firearms until it is determined that the transferor is legally eligible to possess a firearm and has an active Firearm Owners Identification Card, if applicable, or until a new person is chosen to hold the firearm or firearms. Amends various other Acts to make conforming changes. Effective immediately.
