Update on SB1657 - Gun Dealer Licensing Act

Senator Harmon's Gun Dealer Licensing Act, SB1657, which passed the Illinois House and Senate, was vetoed the governor the day before the March For Our Lives. This bill will go back to the Senate between Tuesday, April 10 and Wednesday, April 25 for an override vote. This will be a heavy lift.

There are 2 useful websites that help connect residents to their state legislators, let them sign a petition, and keep up with the latest developments: the Illinois Gun Violence Prevention Coalition at https://ilgvp.com/ouronejob/ and Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence at www.ichv.org. Check them out!

DPOP will have phone banks for SB1657 every Thursday in April. Please join us - any time you can give will be appreciated.
