My 40 year old daughter finally received her FOID card. I would like to give her a handgun that we used to shoot when she was a teenager. Since she is my daughter, do i have to fill out the transfer paperwork necessary if I sold the pistol or can I just give her the pistol? Thanks for your time.

Unsure of the technical legalities, but you might as well.....

 

Do the log on at ISP, run her brand new FOID number, fill out the printed validation, and make her a photocopy as part of the gift. Stow your copy in the file cabinet.

 

10 minutes and done.

The online FOID validation isn't required for family members, but the transfer itself is just like any other, i.e. do the paperwork and maintain copies for 10 years. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

PERSON TO PERSON FIREARMS TRANSFERS
Effective January 1, 2014, the FOID law has been modified for Person to Person Firearms Transfers.

If a private party sells a firearm in Illinois to another private party, they must go to the Illinois State Police website and verify that the buyer has a valid FOID card. Visit the ISP website, click on “Firearm,” “Firearm Owner Identification (FOID Card)” and “FOID Person to Person Firearm Transfer.”

The seller must enter the buyers FOID and Birth date to verify the buyer has a valid FOID. The website will generate an “Approval Number.” The Approval Number must be listed on the paperwork that is generated by the Sale of the Firearm. The paperwork generated by the sale of the firearm must be kept for 10 years but it's not a bad idea to keep it forever.

Persons buying a firearm from a Federal Firearms License (FFL) are not covered by this law, as the records are generated under federal law. Persons buying or selling a firearm to family members are exempt under the law. Family members are identified as, husband, wife, son, daughter, stepson, stepdaughter, father, mother, stepfather, stepmother, brother, sister, nephew, niece, uncle, aunt, grandfather, grandmother, grandson, granddaughter, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law and daughter-in-law.

For additional information regarding the Gun Safety and Responsibility Act please click here or contact the Illinois State Police Services Bureau support line at 217-782-7980.

The one caviat is as long as you are both IL residents.

IANAL but I think you would need to go through an FFL if it crosses state lines.

If in Cook, does the transferer still need to submit make-model-s/n to local Police Chief? Sent using Tapatalk app

Where does it say that at? Do you have a citation for the statute/ordinance?

 

A search brings up this on the Cook County Sheriff's website: http://www.cookcount...nformation.html

 

The link on there brings up the following form: Lost, Stolen, Destroyed or Transferred Firearms Report

 

I thought the preemption in the FCCA would obviate that. Anyone know the true disposition of this, with regards to the various categories of firearms (handgun vs. long gun)?

 

Update: Well, this is on the books, according to what I have been able to find: http://cookcounty-il...pti_ch58_artvii

 

Again, does anyone know if the FCCA's preemption moots this for handguns?

I believe Section 90 Preemption does in fact negate their requirement to notify them of a transfer or sale of a firearm.

Just my opinion

I am amazed it is this hard to transfer as an inheritance a weapon. I want my kid to get my armory.
