Tomorrow, the Illinois House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider Senate Bill 1657, legislation designed to force local gun dealers to close. This is your last chance to file a witness slip in opposition to this egregious legislation. Please click here, or the button below, to do so.
SB 1657 would create onerous mandatory regulations, fees potentially in the thousands of dollars and excessive amounts of red tape that would almost assuredly force the closure of many firearm dealers, and prevent prospective owners from opening new ones. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) already licenses and closely monitors all federally licensed firearm dealers (FFLs) and strictly enforces any violation of federal law.
SB 1657 goes far beyond federal law and is designed to shut down as many FFLs as possible.
