Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- SB 1657 (Gun Dealer Licensing) is the Senate version of the legislation that would force your favorite gun store to close under a mountain of new regulations. This bill will affect your ability to buy firearms or ammunition in Illinois. Never mind the weight of all the federal regulations that gun dealers and gun owners must deal with, your retailer and you will have more Illinois regulations and fees now too.
The bill as amended passed out of the Senate on a 30-21 vote and today passed out of the committee hearing in the Illinois House of Representatives. This bill is now expected to see action on the floor of the House.
