Short description: 
CD CORR-FELONY-POSS OF FIREARM                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act.  Requires  the      
   State  Police,  upon  receiving  notice  from the circuit clerk that a      
   person has been convicted of a  felony,  to  immediately  revoke  that      
   person's  Firearm  Owner's Identification Card (FOID Card). Amends the      
   Unified Code of Corrections.  Provides  that,  even  if  there  is  an      
   agreement   regarding   the   defendant's   sentence,   a  presentence      
   investigation is required before the defendant may be sentenced for  a      
   felony.   Requires  that  the  presentence  report contain information      
   concerning the defendant's possession of any firearm and a FOID  Card.      
   At  the defendant's sentencing hearing, requires the court to question      
   the defendant concerning his possession of firearms and  admonish  the      
   defendant  that  possession of firearms by a person who has had his or      
   her FOID Card revoked  for  conviction  of  a  felony  is  a  separate      
   offense,  punishable  as  a Class 3 felony.  Provides that, as part of      
   the defendant's sentence, he or she must be ordered to mail his or her      
   FOID Card to the  State  Police  within  24  hours  after  sentencing.      
   Requires  the  circuit  clerk,  within  24 hours after the defendant's      
   conviction of a felony, to notify the State Police of this conviction.      
   For any defendant  convicted  of  a  felony,  allows  law  enforcement      
   officers  to  search  the  person,  residence,  or  any  other real or      
   personal property of the defendant without the defendant's consent and      
   seize  any  firearms  found.   Provides  that  probation,  conditional      
   discharge, or periodic imprisonment imposed for a felony offense shall      
   be revoked if the defendant possesses a firearm.  Makes other changes.      
   Effective immediately.
