Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Criminal Code  of  1961.  Changes  references  in  the      
   statute  on  unlawful  sale  of  firearms  from  "sell"  or  "give" to      
   "transfer". Provides that certain prohibitions  against  transfers  of      
   firearms to certain categories of persons apply only if the transferor      
   has  reasonable  cause to believe that the transferee is in one of the      
   categories to which a prohibition applies.  Prohibits  multiple  sales      
   of   handguns   within   a   30-day  period,  except  under  specified      
   circumstances. Creates the offense of unlawful purchase  of  handguns.      
   Provides that the penalty is a Class A misdemeanor for a first offense      
   and a Class 4 felony for a second or subsequent offense.                    
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                              
          Fiscal impact and impact on the corrections population would         
          be minimal.                                                          
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                        
          Same as DOC fiscal note.
