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 the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote YES on the BIO (Block Illegal Ownership) Bill, SB 1966, to stop the flow of illegal guns to our communities. 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
