Call your State Representative! OPPOSE SB1966 HCA1
Representative Willis' SB1966 HCA1, aka “Fix the FOID” passed out of committee yesterday and could be voted on at any time. Even Chicago legislators from the Black Caucus objected to the high cost of the proposed increase in the FOID fee. They know many of their constituents cannot pay the nearly $200 fees and will become criminals when their FOID card expires. They know our poorest citizens who live in the most dangerous neighborhoods will have to make a choice between their family's safety or breaking the law.
Mandatory fingerprints to own or possess a firearm, charging an outrageous fee, requiring firearm owners to make private firearm transfers at a FFL dealer, telling a private business what they can charge for a service is an outrage! Unconstitutional! Places a monetary burden on a Constitutional right!
