Yesterday, the Illinois House of Representatives adjourned and the Senate adjourned today. Thanks to your efforts in contacting your legislators, they will go home without bringing up Senate Bills 333 and 1657 for votes.
Senate Bill 1657/ Senate Bill 333 would have created onerous mandatory regulations, fees and costs, potentially in the thousands of dollars. The bills would also have created 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 laws.
Your NRA would like to thank all of the legislators and Second Amendment supporters who did their part to protect the Second Amendment in Illinois. Stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on issues that affect your Second Amendment rights.
