Sheriff deputies may soon be able to confiscate guns from homes of people who have lost their state permit.  Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart says Senator Bill Cunningham plans to sponsor legislation that would allow deputies to enter the home of anyone who had their Firearms Owner's Identification Card revoked. 

Dart says approximately 36-thousand cards issued in Cook County have been revoked, but he has no power to see if those people are still in possession of weapons.
