Does this bill do what I think it does says it amends criminal code of 2012 saying it's illegal to possess a suppressor without or altered serial number does that make those with serial numbers legal?

Edit: Of course with the proper NFA stamp.

This may be one of those we do not talk about it on a publicly accessible website bills...

this appears to be an addition to the existing law.

720 ILCS 5/24-1 (6) is the provision that makes it illegal to possess a silencer and this act would not change that any.

I don't know why anyone would consider this as gun friendly.

Looks to me like it makes illegal home built suppressors, like they weren't already illegal!

I believe you are correct.  Until the bill has language that says it is repealing or replacing 720 ILCS 5/24-1 (6), then the bill has no effect on the current prohibition on silencers.  In fact, the only thing it does is create an opportunity for a second Class 3 felony.  Assuming this bill becomes law as written, if you are caught with a silencer with a missing or altered serial number, you would be in violation of both statutes and thus subject to one count of UUW and one count of "Possession of a suppressor without a serial number or with an altered serial number."

If we really want to play hardball with the idiots in the senate and house the original law states 720 ILCS 5/24-1 (6) is the provision that makes it illegal to possess a silencer, I for the life of me have never seen one of these that completely silences a firearm or is called a silencer on the other hand they do sell suppressors.
