Senate Bill 1657, which I co-sponsored, has passed the Illinois House and Senate and is currently sitting on Governor Rauner’s desk. The bill creates the Gun Dealer Licensing Act, which requires gun dealers to get licensed by the State before they can sell firearms.
This is a common sense measure that regulates who is allowed to sell guns. Please take a moment to contact Governor Bruce Rauner here and tell him to sign SB1657, and help make our Illinois streets and schools safer.
I have been a strong advocate for gun control in Springfield and am proud of my record of fighting the NRA and passing legislation that will keep guns out of the hands of those who would use them to harm others.
Illinois State Senate, District 8
