Gun Registration

Firearm registration laws ensure gun owner accountability, helping law enforcement officers solve crimes and disarm criminals. Illinois requires gun owners to have FOID cards, but Illinoisans don’t have to register their guns. Despite the benefit of registration laws, few states have them—and some prohibit such laws outright4.

Contact your representatives to require registration for all firearms prior to taking possession.
