Illinois: Private Transfer Ban & FOID Fee Increase Bill to Receive Vote


Recommended Posts

With session nearing a close, lawmakers plan to hold a vote for House Bill 1091 this weekend. It bans private transfers and makes it harder to obtain a FOID. Please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE HB 1091.

House Amendment 1 to House Bill 1091, deceptively called the “Fix the FOID Act,” criminalizes private transfers of firearms from one FOID holder to another FOID holder, requires fingerprints for both new FOID applications and renewals, doubles the application fee of a FOID to $20 while halving the duration to five years, and increases the processing time for a FOID, among other things. These proposals make it more expensive and difficult for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights, while adding nothing of investigative value for law-enforcement. Current Illinois law already only allows FOID holders to conduct private transfers of firearms to other FOID holders, and state police already do background checks on FOID applicants.

Again, please contact your state representative and ask them to OPPOSE HB 1091.
