Dear State Senator,
As your constituent, I am calling on you to listen to the 85% of Illinoisans who support licensing firearm dealers by voting to override Governor Rauner’s veto of legislation that will save lives.
90% of crime guns in the United States can be traced to only 5% of gun dealers, some of the most notorious of which are based right here in Illinois. Between 2013 and 2016, 40% of guns recovered from crime scenes in Chicago were sold by gun dealers located in Illinois.
It’s time we stand up and say enough is enough and hold these corrupt gun dealers responsible. We urge you to vote to override the veto of this legislation mandating state licensing of gun dealers to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have access to them and protect our communities from gun violence.
