In the Senate yesterday, SR401 Stop the Bleed Day was adopted and HB3462 Sch Cd - Hunting Ed Course was moved to third reading.

In the House, two amendments were filed:

House Amendement 1 to SB1139:

Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that a person who is under 21 years of age may apply for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card without parental consent required if he or she is an active duty member of the United States Armed Forces. Amends the Firearm Concealed Carry Act. Provides that the Department of State Police shall issue a concealed carry license to an applicant who is an active duty member of the United States Armed Forces. Provides that a concealed carry license shall be renewed for a period of 5 years from the date of expiration on the applicant's current license upon the applicant completing the necessary requirements under the Act. Amends the Firearm Dealer License Certification Act. Provides that "retail location" does not include the World Shooting and Recreational Complex. Provides that the provisions of the Act related to the certification of a license do not apply to transfers of firearms to a resident registered competitor or attendee or non-resident registered competitor or attendee by a licensed federal firearms dealer at a competitive shooting event held at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex that is sanctioned by a national governing body. Amends the Wildlife Code. Provides that a current or retired law enforcement officer authorized by law to possess a concealed firearm shall be exempt from the provisions of the Code prohibiting possession of those firearms. Amends the Criminal Code of 2012. Provides that a qualified current or retired law enforcement officer under the laws of the State and under the federal Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act is not subject to the Firearm Concealed Carry Act.


House Amendment 1 to SB1966:

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Department of State Police Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Provides that the Director of State Police shall (rather than may) establish a statewide multi-jurisdictional Violent Crime Intelligence Task Force. Provides that the Violent Crime Intelligence Task Force shall also conduct enforcement operations against persons whose Firearm Owner's Identification Cards have been revoked or suspended and persons who fail to comply with the revocation or suspension requirements of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, prioritizing individuals presenting a clear and present danger to themselves or to others under that Act. Provides that the Task Force shall collaborate with local law enforcement agencies to enforce provisions of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, the Firearm Concealed Carry Act, the Firearm Dealer License Certification Act, and the Deadly Weapons Article of the Criminal Code of 2012. Provides that the Director of State Police may establish intergovernmental contracts written and executed in conformity with the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act. Provides that the Department of State Police shall establish a portal for use by federal, State, or local law enforcement agencies, including Offices of the State's Attorneys and the Office of the Attorney General to capture a report of persons whose Firearm Owner's Identification Cards have been revoked or suspended. 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 Department of State Police, unless the applicant has previously provided a full set of his or her fingerprints to the Department 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 a person who receives a revocation or suspension notice under the Act (currently, only revocation notice) shall, within 48 hours of receiving notice of the revocation or suspension: (1) surrender his or her Firearm Owner's Identification Card to the local law enforcement agency where the person resides; and (2) complete a Firearm Disposition Record on a form prescribed by the Department of State Police and place his or her firearms in the location or with the person reported in the Firearm Disposition Record. 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 nothing in the firearm revocation or suspension provisions of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act prevents a court from ordering an individual to surrender his or her Firearm Owner's Identification Card to a law enforcement agency of the court's choosing in a timeframe shorter than 48 hours after receipt of the notice of revocation or suspension. 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 the State Finance Act. Creates the State Police Revocation Enforcement Fund and the School-Based Mental Health Services Fund in the State treasury and defines their purposes. Amends the Firearm Concealed Carry Act. Provides that an applicant for renewal need not resubmit a full set of fingerprints if the applicant has previously done so under the Act or the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Amends the Criminal Code of 2012. Provides that a person commits the offense of unlawful sale or delivery of firearms when he or she transfers ownership of a firearm to a person in violation of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. This offense is a Class 4 felony. Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 and the Unified Code of Corrections. Modifies requirements for transfer of firearms to a law enforcement agency as required under those Acts. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.

SB1966 has been posted to the 5/21/2019 House Judiciary - Criminal hearing, and it's deadline is extended to 5/31/2019. There is no current opportunity to file witness slips opposing the amendment. Stay tuned for alerts on this bill.

I'll be away again today, particularly in the afternoon.

The House is scheduled for 12:00 Noon today; the Senate Senate for 11:00 AM.

Isn't it unusual that witness slips are not being accepted?  The hearing is less than a week away.

They may be trying to silence us.  They may be lining up their stooges to inundate the servers when they DO open up the witness slips.  If they can get enough of their people hitting the servers at around the same time, it may cause a blockage similar to DDoS attack.

It's not unusual for a bill to remain in the Rules Committee the day it was filed, and this amendment was just filed yesterday.

Let's see if it gets assigned today and tomorrow.

That's still the original bill, not Amendment 1. Amendment 1 is the thing to oppose.
