Bullet 8 of 31
Gun owner licenses usually are issued or renewed only after the applicant has undergone a background check, completed a gun safety training course, and passed tests on how to safely load, fire and store a gun. Licensing laws are a simple, yet effective way to ensure guns are purchased and used by responsible Americans. Illinois has such a law, but the federal government — and many states — do not.3
