   requiring  the  forwarding  of  the  actual  application.   Amends the      
   Illinois Vehicle Code.  Requires the Department  of  State  Police  to      
   forward  to  the  Secretary  of  State the names, addresses, and other      
   identifying   information   about   holders   of    Firearm    Owner's      
   Identification Cards.  Provides that the information shall be compiled      
   in  a  database  and  may  be accessed by law enforcement officers who      
   enforce traffic laws.
