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Task Force shall also conduct enforcement operations against persons whose Firearm Owner's Identification Cards have been revoked or suspended and persons who fail to comply with the revocation or suspension requirements of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, prioritizing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.

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.
In the amendatory changes to the State Finance Act, eliminates the School-Based Mental Health Services Fund and provides that moneys in the Mental Health Reporting Fund may be used for reporting prohibitors to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Provides that any surplus moneys in the Fund shall be used as follows: (1) 50% shall be used to fund community-based mental health programs aimed at reducing gun violence, community integration and education, or mental health awareness and prevention, including administrative costs; and (2) 50% shall be used to award grants that use and promote the National School Mental Health Curriculum model for school-based mental health support, integration, and services.
