        Amends the Illinois Municipal Code.   Provides  that  the  mayor,      
   president,  aldermen,  trustees,  and  commissioners in municipalities      
   shall not be deemed peace, police, or law enforcement officers and  do      
   not have any authority by virtue of holding any of those offices or by      
   virtue  of  being  conservators of the peace to possess, carry, or use      
   any firearm. Applies to  all  municipalities,  whether  home  rule  or      
   non-home rule, and to all such officers elected or appointed under the      
   Code,  under the Revised Cities and Villages Act of 1941, or under any      
   other law.  Amends the  Criminal  Code  of  1961  to  make  conforming

        Amends the Criminal Code of 1961 to re-enact the unlawful use  of
