CRIM CD-FIREARMS TRACING                                                   

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Criminal Code of 1961.  Provides that upon  recovering      
   a  firearm  from the possession of anyone under 21 years of age who is      
   not authorized by federal or State law to  possess  the  firearm,  the      
   local  law  enforcement  agency  shall trace where the person under 21      
   gained possession of the firearm.  Provides  that  upon  completing  a      
   trace, the local law enforcement agency shall record its findings on a      
   form  prescribed by the Department of State Police and shall forward a      
   copy within 5 days to the Director of State Police.                         
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Deletes provisions that a firearms trace is  not  complete  until      
   enough  evidence  exists  to  make  prosecution  possible or until all      
   available  resources  have  been   exhausted.   Requires   local   law      
   enforcement agencies to use the National Tracing Center of the Federal      
   Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms in tracing firearms recovered      
   from  persons  under  21  years of age. Requires local law enforcement      
   agencies to use the LEADS Gun File to enter  all  stolen,  seized,  or      
   recovered firearms.                                                         
          JUDICIAL NOTE                                                        
          No decrease or increase in the number of judges needed.              
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE                                                    
          There would be no population impact or fiscal impact.                
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE (DCCA)                                    
          SB 550 fails to create a State mandate.                              
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                                   
          SB 550 would have no impact on this Dept.
