On May 9, the Illinois House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 681 by a strong, bi-partisan 89 to 28 vote, after receiving approval in March in the Senate. This common sense ammunition purchase reform now heads to Governor Pat Quinn (D) desk to await his signature, and it needs your support. Please contact the Governor today and urge him to sign SB 681 into law.
Senate Bill 681, introduced by state Senators Dave Luechtefeld (R-58) and John Sullivan (R-47), would allow residents of Illinois with a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) Card to mail-order ammunition from others within Illinois. Current law only allows for such orders by Illinois residents from vendors outside of Illinois, so this legislation makes a sensible change to the law.
