Gun Sales by Private Owners

According to an undercover investigation by the City of New York, 62% of private online firearm sellers agreed to sell a firearm to a buyer even after the buyer had told the seller that he or she probably could not pass a background check13.

In Illinois, buyers in all sales — including private sales — must show a verified FOID card, something all states should do. Tell your U.S. representative that you want them to support banning gun sales by private owners.
