CRIM CD-DANGEROUS WEAPONS                                                  

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that  the  offense  of      
   unlawful  use  of  weapons  includes  the  carrying or possessing of a      
   baseball bat with the intent to  use  it  unlawfully  against  another      
   person.  Also  includes in the unlawful use of weapons offense the use      
   of a dog to inflict bodily harm upon another person  or  threaten  the      
   infliction of bodily harm with the intent to commit a criminal offense      
   against  another person.  Includes a baseball bat and dog as "weapons"      
   when used for unlawful purposes in the definition of  a  category  III      
   weapon under the armed violence statute.                                    
          JUDICIAL NOTE                                                        
          There would be minimal impact on judicial workloads, but HB325       
          would not increase the need for the number of judges in Ill.         
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                                   
          There will be minimal impact from HB325.                             
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE                                                    
          No change from DOC fiscal note.
