Native arms sellers are responding to the FOID regulation that goes by the Illinois Home
Peoria, Ill. (WMBD) – House of Representatives, Ill. Drastic passes the Firearms Owner Identification Department (FOID) bill Wednesday, and local arms dealers say they are placing an additional burden on them regarding arms sales records.
Illinois is the only state that has enacted the FOID Card Act.
In its many new provisions, the law requires private gun buyers to report their purchases to gun dealers who keep records for 20 years.
Kevin Moody, owner of Mortons Comes Shooting Sports, said the ordinance would put pressure on gun dealers for guns they didn’t sell.
“I need to keep records, but that had nothing to do with the transfer itself. We didn’t see the gun and we don’t know what was transferred or what happened… We are responsible for the records for 20 years but I don’t know what they are recording, ”he said. ..
The bill will also allow gun owners who voluntarily fingerprints to receive automatic FOID card renewals. The card is also digitized and can be carried on a smartphone.
Moody urged Illinois to “step into the 21st century” and dispose of its FOID card.
“Nobody else uses a FOID card. Only Illinois has it, ”he said.
The bill is now being sent to Governor JB Pritzker’s desk for signature.
