It’s time to pass the BIO (Block Illegal Ownership) Bill, SB 1966 to fix the FOID system in Illinois

Every day, we lose too many Illinoisians to gun violence. Take a stand to save lives RIGHT NOW by asking your state Senator to make sure the BIO (Block Illegal Ownership) Bill, SB 1966, passes this session and is sent to the Governor’s desk as soon as possible? Currently, the bill is stalled in the Illinois Senate Judiciary Committee, and we need you to tell these Senators to vote YES to pass the bill out of committee.

The BIO (Block Illegal Ownership) Bill, SB 1966 would:

  • Reduce the FOID Card duration from 10 years to 5 years.
  • Require a point-of-sale background check for all gun sales, including those by an unlicensed seller.
  • Require applicants for FOID Cards to submit fingerprints as part of their application
