Welcome to the Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) Mental Health Reporting System. The FOID Mental Health Reporting System was authorized by the FOID Act (430 ILCS 65)
The FOID Mental Health Reporting System website provides clinicians and facilities with 24-hour and immediate access to report an individual that is receiving mental health treatment or is determined to be a "clear and present danger". DHS is responsible for comparing the data reported against the State Police FOID files to identify possible matches. The ISP is then responsible for investigating and processing the application for the FOID card... If you are a healthcare facility or individual clinician in Illinois you may have responsibilities for reporting mental health information to the DHS.

Not just MDs, the law says “healthcare facilities”, which would include admin personnel and nurses. “Clinician” is used instead of Doctor, too.
Trial run before Obamacare becomes a gun control tool, which is I suspect why there is a national chant about guns and mental health.
If someone is determined to be too dangerous to own a gun, do we let them drive, work in schools or food prep areas (knives, yano), or let them in airports?
Good point. I could see this as a way for leftist medical personnel to retaliate against conservative/gun owning medical personnel.
We have a “if you see something, say something” snitch society.
At first glance, it appears Little Dick Dick Durbin [D-IL]will be barred from owning firearms. For openers, just recall his squalid remarks about the US military personnel responsible for keeping track of the islamofascist swine doing soft time at Gitmo.
Are you kidding? This is Dick Turban’s revenge against all those nasty rightwing gun owners in Illinois.
“If you voted against Obama, you’re a racist AND you’re certifiably nuts. So turn in your guns! I said NOW!!!
Would that include Gabby Giffords?
That would include Clown Prince nobama!
I've said for years that anyone who can not be trusted to carry a weapon should not be running around loose.
It’s another indicator that gun control has nothing to do with public safety or reducing crime.
They meant to name it FOAD.
Soviet it is. That’s what they are using as the model.
