Short description: 
FIREARM REGULATION-PREEMPTION                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Local Government Firearm  Regulation  Preemption  Act      
   and  amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act.  Provides that      
   a person who is in possession, transports, stores,  purchases,  sells,      
   or  otherwise  deals in firearms, ammunition, components, accessories,      
   and accoutrements in compliance with U.S. and State law is entitled to      
   possess, transport, store, purchase, sell, and otherwise deal in these      
   items throughout this State.   Preempts  units  of  local  government,      
   including  home  rule  units,  from  regulating  firearms, ammunition,      
   components, accessories, or accoutrements, except as provided  in  the      
   Local  Government Firearm Regulation Preemption Act.  Contains limited      
   exemption for municipalities of over 2,000,000  inhabitants  from  the      
   application  of the Act.  Permits these municipalities to require free      
   and open registration of firearms.                                          
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 216 preempts home rule authority.         
          FISCAL NOTE (State Police)                                           
          There would be minimal fiscal impact on the State Police.            
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          No change from previous home rule note.                              
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 216, fails to meet the definition         
          of a mandate under the State Mandates Act.
