FOID Reform Bill In Governor’s Hands

A Firearm Owners Identification Card reform bill is in the hands of Governor J.B. Pritzker. The bill officially passed both houses this week, and would allow FOID cards to be issued whenever a firearm transaction is made. It would also automatically renew FOID cards for people who submit copies of their fingerprints. The Illinois State Rifle Association has not taken a position on the reform bill.
