Illinois: A legislative committee is setting gun store rules

Lives are more important than guns

Last January, Senate Bill 337 was signed into law. This new law will license all gun dealers and better regulate their practices such as record keeping. Now, a joint committee is tasked with implementing new rules to comply with this law. The NRA is concerned that these new rules may hurt gun store business. They should be concerned that these new rules may not be strong enough to actually stop some gun shootings Chicago.

On Thursday (10/3), the NRA alerted their Illinois members to contact the Illinois state Joint Committee on Administrative Rules. The NRA alert said, “Please contact the committee and urge them not to shut down small businesses with political garbage that doesn’t increase public safety.”

I am alerting you to contact the committee and urge them to work to make the public safer with measures to prevent gun violence.

Action

Please send an email to the Illinois state Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (jcar@ilga.gov). Ask them to keep gun violence prevention as their primary concern when setting gun stores rules.
