STOP THE STRAW #STS

straw pur·chase (noun) – a criminal act in which a person who is prohibited from buying firearms uses another person to buy a gun on their behalf.

Our violence problem is directly linked to the number of illegal guns available. 

It is time to hold accountable straw purchasers, retail stores and irresponsible gun owners who arm criminals and young people. Sign the petition to pass this public safety measure before our state has a record-breaking year of shootings and homicides. Easy access to guns in Illinois is killing our children and devastating our communities. Illinois needs this law now.   For more information click here.  STOP THE STRAW #STS
