    Sec. 3.1. Dial up system.
    (a) The Department of State Police shall provide a dial up
telephone system or utilize other existing technology which
shall be used by any federally licensed firearm dealer, gun
show promoter, or gun show vendor who is to transfer a firearm,
stun gun, or taser under the provisions of this Act. The
Department of State Police may utilize existing technology
which allows the caller to be charged a fee not to exceed $2.

deposited in the State Police Services Fund and used to provide
the service.
    (b) Upon receiving a request from a federally licensed
firearm dealer, gun show promoter, or gun show vendor, the
Department of State Police shall immediately approve, or within
the time period established by Section 24-3 of the Criminal
Code of 2012 regarding the delivery of firearms, stun guns, and
tasers notify the inquiring dealer, gun show promoter, or gun
show vendor of any objection that would disqualify the
transferee from acquiring or possessing a firearm, stun gun, or
taser. In conducting the inquiry, the Department of State
Police shall initiate and complete an automated search of its
criminal history record information files and those of the
Federal Bureau of Investigation, including the National
Instant Criminal Background Check System, and of the files of
the Department of Human Services relating to mental health and
developmental disabilities to obtain any felony conviction or
patient hospitalization information which would disqualify a
person from obtaining or require revocation of a currently
valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card.
    (c) If receipt of a firearm would not violate Section 24-3
of the Criminal Code of 2012, federal law, or this Act the
Department of State Police shall:
        (1) assign a unique identification number to the
    transfer; and
        (2) provide the licensee, gun show promoter, or gun
    show vendor with the number.
    (d) Approvals issued by the Department of State Police for
the purchase of a firearm are valid for 30 days from the date
of issue.
    (e) (1) The Department of State Police must act as the
Illinois Point of Contact for the National Instant Criminal
Background Check System.
    (2) The Department of State Police and the Department of
Human Services shall, in accordance with State and federal law
regarding confidentiality, enter into a memorandum of
understanding with the Federal Bureau of Investigation for the
purpose of implementing the National Instant Criminal
Background Check System in the State. The Department of State
Police shall report the name, date of birth, and physical
description of any person prohibited from possessing a firearm
pursuant to the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act or 18
U.S.C. 922(g) and (n) to the National Instant Criminal
Background Check System Index, Denied Persons Files.
    (3) The Department of State Police shall provide notice of
the disqualification of a person under subsection (b) of this
Section or the revocation of a person's Firearm Owner's
Identification Card under Section 8 or Section 8.2 of this Act,
and the reason for the disqualification or revocation, to all
law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction to assist with the
seizure of the person's Firearm Owner's Identification Card.
    (f) The Department of State Police shall adopt rules not
inconsistent with this Section to implement this system.
