Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Firearms restraining order awareness.
(a) The Department, subject to appropriation or other available funding, shall
conduct a program to promote awareness of firearms restraining orders to the
general public. The program may include, but is not limited to:
(1) dissemination of information, either online or
with an in-person pamphlet, of the options people have to seek assistance using a firearms restraining order and the process in which to file one;
(2) production of materials that can be given to
health care workers that assist in identifying people who may benefit from awareness of the Firearms Restraining Order Act; and
(3) specific information on situations in which a
firearms restraining order may be appropriate such as with situations of domestic violence, mental health crisis, or anyone who is at risk of injuring themselves or others.
Beginning July 1, 2022, the program must include the development and
dissemination, through print, digital, and broadcast media, of public service
announcements that publicize the firearms restraining order.
