Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that if the Department of State Police has not received the Firearm Disposition Record within 5 business days after sending notice of revocation and seizure of an FOID card, the Department must send a second notice to the sheriff and law enforcement agency where the person resides, in addition to the individuals' residence. Provides that the second notice shall include the compliance requirements under the Act. Provides that upon receiving the second notice, the sheriff or law enforcement agency shall report to the Department the status and efforts pursued regarding compliance under the Act. Provides that if the sheriff or law enforcement agency does not provide information detailing the submission of a Firearm Disposition Record within 5 days of the second notice, the Department of State Police may request that the circuit court issue an arrest warrant for the individual who has failed to submit a Firearm Disposition Record. Provides that if the person whose FOID card has been revoked fails to comply with the requirements of the Act, the sheriff or law enforcement agency where the person resides shall (rather than may) petition the court for a warrant to search for and seize the person's FOID card and firearms. Provides that within 30 days after the effective date of the bill, and by January 31 of each year thereafter, the Department of State Police shall provide written notice of the requirements of this provision to every sheriff and law enforcement agency within the State.
