Lightford011719CHICAGO- A proposal that regulates gun dealers in an effort to limit the illegal sale of firearms and make more information on gun crimes available to the public became law today.

Senate Bill 337 was approved in the aftermath of the shooting at Parkland High School in Florida and in response to the senseless loss of lives throughout Illinois. Senate Majority Leader Kimberly A. Lightford (D-Maywood) released the following statement on the signing of the new law:

“For years, we have seen tragedy after tragedy throughout Illinois and across the country, and this is a victory for those who decided that our communities deserve better. This law brings us step closer to keeping guns out of the wrong hands, and brings some comfort to those who have lost a loved one.

“Governor Pritzker’s support for this legislation brings hope that we will be able to work on more commonsense gun measures moving forward.”
