   720 ILCS 5/24-10 new                                                        

        Amends the Criminal Code  of  1961.   Allows  a  law  enforcement      
   officer at the scene of a domestic violence incident to take temporary      
   custody  of  any  firearm  in  plain sight or pursuant to a consensual      
   search.  Provides that all weapons taken into custody must be held  at      
   least  48  hours. Provides that, within 72 hours of the seizure of the      
   firearm, if it is not retained as evidence related to charges  brought      
   as  a  result  of  the domestic violence incident, the firearm must be      
   returned to the owner.  Provides that, if the law  enforcement  agency      
   has  reasonable  cause to believe that the return of the firearm would      
   be likely to result in endangering the domestic violence  victim,  the      
   agency must, within 30 days, or 60 days if an extension is granted, of      
   the  seizure of the firearm, file a petition with the circuit court to      
   determine if the firearm should be returned.  Requires  the  court  to      
   return the firearm unless it is shown by clear and convincing evidence      
   that  returning  the  firearm  would  likely result in endangering the      
   domestic violence victim.
