Illinois: House committee approves gun control legislation

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

A House committee on Monday pushed through three pieces of gun legislation, sending them to the full House for consideration. State Rep. Harry Osterman, D Chicago, sponsored two of the bills that passed. His first bill -- approved on a 7 to 5 vote -- amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act by prohibiting individuals who lack the proper license to sell or transfer their firearms to another person. The transaction could only be performed through a licensed dealer. Osterman's second bill passed on a 6 to 4 vote, and would require gun owners to have a proper, portable gun carrying case in which to transport their gun.
