RE: Governor Rauner's veto of SB 1657, the Gun Dealer Licensing Bill
Once again, call your State Senator and Representative to vote to override Governor Rauner's veto of SB 1657, the Gun Dealer Licensing Bill. It is possible that the bill will be called on April 10th or shortly thereafter.
Licensing and regulating gun dealers would help stem the flow of illegal guns, keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. This law would allow for inspections of gun dealers, background checks of gun dealer employees, as well as video security to prevent theft.
