    AN ACT concerning regulation.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Firearm Owners Identification Card Act is
amended by changing Section 3 as follows:
    (430 ILCS 65/3)  (from Ch. 38, par. 83-3)
    Sec. 3. (a) Except as provided in Section 3a, no person may
knowingly transfer, or cause to be transferred, any firearm,
firearm ammunition, stun gun, or taser to any person within
this State unless the transferee with whom he deals displays a
currently valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card which has
previously been issued in his name by the Department of State
Police under the provisions of this Act. In addition, all
firearm, stun gun, and taser transfers by federally licensed
firearm dealers are subject to Section 3.1.
    (a-5) Any person who is not a federally licensed firearm
dealer and who desires to transfer or sell a firearm while that
person is on the grounds of a gun show must, before selling or
transferring the firearm, request the Department of State
Police to conduct a background check on the prospective
recipient of the firearm in accordance with Section 3.1.
    (b) Any person within this State who transfers or causes to
be transferred any firearm, stun gun, or taser shall keep a
record of such transfer for a period of 10 years from the date
of transfer. Such record shall contain the date of the
transfer; the description, serial number or other information
identifying the firearm, stun gun, or taser if no serial number
is available; and, if the transfer was completed within this
State, the transferee's Firearm Owner's Identification Card
number. On or after January 1, 2006, the record shall contain
the date of application for transfer of the firearm. On demand
of a peace officer such transferor shall produce for inspection
such record of transfer. If the transfer or sale took place at
a gun show, the record shall include the unique identification
number. Failure to record the unique identification number is a
petty offense.
    (b-5) Any resident may purchase ammunition from a person
within or outside of Illinois if shipment is by United States
mail or by a private express carrier authorized by federal law
to ship ammunition. Any resident purchasing ammunition within
or outside the State of Illinois must provide the seller with a
copy of his or her valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card
and either his or her Illinois driver's license or Illinois
State Identification Card prior to the shipment of the
ammunition. The ammunition may be shipped only to an address on
either of those 2 documents.
    (c) The provisions of this Section regarding the transfer
of firearm ammunition shall not apply to those persons
specified in paragraph (b) of Section 2 of this Act.
