Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Criminal  Code  of  1961.    Provides   that   after      
   disposition  of  a  criminal  case,  the court may order a confiscated      
   weapon for which no legitimate claim has been made to  be  traded  for      
   other  weapons or police agency equipment or sold with the proceeds of      
   the sale being used for crime prevention programs, if the weapon being      
   traded or sold has a useful purpose to another law enforcement  agency      
   or a retail value of no less than $100.  Prohibits a sheriff to whom a      
   weapon  has  been transferred by the court from trading or selling the      
   weapon to a federally licensed firearm dealer unless at least  50%  of      
   the  business  of the firearm dealer is with law enforcement agencies.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 2 (Dept. of Corrections)

          CORRECTIONAL NOTE, H-AM 2                                            
          No change from DOC fiscal note.
