CRIM CD-HANDGUN STORAGE                                                    

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the  Criminal  Code  of  1961.   Creates  the  offense  of      
   negligent  storage  of a handgun.  Provides that it is a petty offense      
   with a maximum fine of $500 for a parent or guardian  of  a  child  to      
   permit  the  child  to  be  present  on  premises  under the parent or      
   guardian's control and to leave the  child  on  the  premises  without      
   supervision  of  a  person at least 21 years of age and to negligently      
   leave a handgun on the premises that is not  locked  in  a  lock  box,      
   secured  with  a  cable  lock,  or rendered inoperable.  Provides that      
   fines collected for this offense shall be deposited into the  Violence      
   Prevention Fund.                                                            
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                        
          This legislation would have no fiscal or population impact.          
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Administrative Office of Ill. Courts)                 
          There may be a minimal increase in judicial workloads; there         
          would not be an increase in the number of judges needed.
