Dear Governor Rauner and Members of the General Assembly,

As your constituent, I am calling on you to listen to the 87% of Illinoisans who support licensing firearm dealers by supporting 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. The local statistics are staggering: Between 2009 and 2014, nearly 40% of all guns recovered from crime scenes in Chicago were sold by just four local gun dealers.

It’s time we stand up and say enough is enough and hold these bad apple gun dealers responsible. We urge you to support 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.
