The Illinois House of Representatives could consider Senate Bill 1657 as early as today or tomorrow. It is important that you continue to contact your state Representative and politely urge them to OPPOSE this egregious legislation.
Senate Bill 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.
Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Representative and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 1657.
