Illinois: Bill Reducing FOID Age Requirement to be Heard in House Committee Tomorrow

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Tomorrow, February 5, at 9:15 a.m., House Bill 3762 is scheduled to be heard in the Illinois House Judiciary Committee.  HB 3762, sponsored by state Representative Jack D. Franks (D-63), would reduce the age requirement from 21 years to 18 years to obtain a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card without a parental signature.  Currently, an individual who is under 21 years of age must rely on a parent who possesses a FOID card in order to exercise their own Second Amendment rights.  This becomes an issue if the parent has their FOID card revoked, which would cause the card of the individual who is under 21 to also be revoked.  By changing this requirement, more citizens in Illinois would be able to further practice their right to keep and bear arms.

It is imperative that members of the state House Judiciary Committee hear your opinion.  Please fill out a witness slip here and, if possible, attend this committee hearing tomorrow at 9:15 a.m. in SUPPORT of House Bill 3762.  By filling out this document, you are notifying members that you support HB 3762.

If you are unable to attend this committee hearing, using the contact information provided below, please call AND e-mail members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT HB 3762.
