Illinois: Social Media Search Bill & Other Anti-Gun Legislation Introduced in House

In addition to the egregious comprehensive firearm ban introduced in the Illinois state Senate, anti-gun bills have been introduced in the state House of Representatives as well.  These bills have not yet been assigned to committees that will consider them.  Please contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE House Bills 888, 899, 892, and 174.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact  your state Representative.

House Bill 888, sponsored by Representative Daniel Didech (D-59), would require Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID) applicants to provide a list of their social media accounts to the Department of State Police (DPS) and for DPS to conduct a search of the accounts.  

House Bill 899, sponsored by Representative Kelly Cassidy (D-14), would punish victims of repeated losses or thefts of their property.  It would revoke FOID cards of those who suffer and report losses or thefts of their firearms in three separate incidents within a two year period.  Law-abiding gun owners who have the misfortune of being targeted by criminals too often would be left completely defenseless by the state against those same criminals.

House Bill 892, sponsored by Representative Michelle Mussman (D-56), would go above and beyond the existing federal law that already bans undetectable firearms and would instead ban many commonly owned firearms with some components made with modern materials that are not actually undetectable.

House Bill 174, sponsored by Representative Rita Mayfield (D-60), would create a one-size-fits all requirement of how and when lost or stolen firearms must be reported, further victimizing gun owners who suffer a loss or theft of their property.

Again, please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE House Bills 888, 899, 892, and 174.
