Gun safety law signed
PRINCETON — Gov. Pat Quinn has signed a new gun safety law requiring background checks for all gun purchases statewide, as well as the reporting of all lost and stolen guns.
Quinn signed the new law on Sunday, saying House Bill 1189 closes the background check loophole for the sale or transfer of a firearm from a private party. Prior to this new legislation, private sellers were not required to check whether or not the purchaser had a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) Card.
Quinn said the new law also requires all eligible firearm owners whose firearms are lost, misplaced or stolen to report the loss or theft to the local law enforcement agency within 72 hours after obtaining knowledge of the loss or theft.
