Just got a letter from ATF and ISP that there will be a seminar for FFLs in June. I have gotten this same letter a few years ago for the same type of seminar and did attend (nothing out of the ordinary), however for this specific seminar, one specific Agenda Item they will be covering is a little concerning- "State of Illinois Regulatory Requirements for Firearms Licensees".

AFAIK, there are no IL state regulatory requirements, just local (if any). Does the ATF and ISP know this is a done-deal?

I hope not, I've called my Rep and the Gov office. SA and RRA get a call tomorrow.

from LGS:

WHY THIS IS A BAD BILL

This bill contains many toxic elements as well as elements that are potentially toxic but as of now undefined:
Fees to be determined by rule. A quick guess is that 15 inspectors would be required to inspect 1500 FFL’s statewide. At $100,000 fully loaded salary cost per inspector, the 1500 FFL’s would see a fee of $3000 each over a three-year period. No doubt, a $3000 fee would discourage some of the 1500 FFL’s to abandon the business, raising the cost per remaining FFL, and these costs will have to be passed along to customers.
Security requirements to be determined by rule. One size fits all security makes no sense. Will they require a particular brand of video camera? Will they require a particular type of lock? We don’t know, because the rule hasn’t been made.
Training requirements will be determined by rule. They could require 60 hours of training per employee. On the dealer’s dime.
You as a Law Abiding individual are limited to 9 “transfers” per year, but “transfer” is to be determined by law. Is that 9 purchases? 9 Sales? 9 of either? 9 of both? It’s to be determined by rule, and you could be conceivably limited to fewer than 1 purchase or sale per month, and the State has now established a limit on how many firearms you may purchase or sell.
Anyone who purchases a firearm will be subjected to warrantless electronic surveillance by the authorities. Additionally, personal information of all legal gun buyers will be gathered and electronically indexed by state agencies. They could if they wanted to create Illinois’ own version of a 4473. They could require the reporting of every gun sold and to whom we sold it.
If enacted, this bill will drive many small FFL’s out of business and raise costs for larger shops like Maxon, all while doing nothing to address the gang violence problem in certain precincts of Cook County.


WHAT WE ARE DOING?

Northern Illinois Dealers including Maxon are contributing financially to put more “boots on the ground” in Springfield next week. Dealer principals will contact key representatives individually and in person as well. This is an all-hands-on-deck effort.


WHAT YOU CAN DO

The House is out of session this week, so contact their District Office this week.
