The Governor of Illinois signed into law Public Act 100-1178 (SB 337). This legislation, titled the Combating Illegal Gun Trafficking Act contains the Firearm Dealer License Certification Act and the Gun Trafficking Information Act.
The Firearm Dealer License Certification Act requires several changes to the way FFLs run their business over the next two years; some of which are simple and others which may prove quite costly.
- A certification process before beginning operations after receiving an FFL
- New consumer sale process requirements
- Retail location geographical restrictions
- Employee training mandates
- New security requirements including cameras, video storage, and security plans
Additionally, retailers will now be required to maintain electronic A&D records. FFLs have several electronic A&D software options available to them today ranging from spreadsheets to customized ERP and POS systems.
