Biss reacts to gun dealer licensing compromise

SPRINGFIELD – Following the Illinois Senate’s passage of a compromise on gun dealer licensing, Senator Daniel Biss issued the following statement:

“It is long past time to improve our nation’s inadequate gun laws to save lives. This measure provides our law enforcement agencies more information about gun purchases,” said Biss (D-Evanston). “This long-overdue regulatory action should be the first step toward comprehensive gun safety reform.”
