Bullet 13 of 31
90% of guns used in criminal acts can be traced to just 5% of gun dealers8. These so called, ”Bad Apple” dealers enable criminals to circumvent gun laws created to keep firearms out of dangerous hands, putting communities at risk for violence. Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner recently vetoed legislation that would address Bad Apple dealers by requiring state licensing of gun shops.
Tell your Illinois representatives to support legislation being drafted to reverse Rauner’s veto, and sign this petition to stop Bad Apple gun dealers.
