WABASH VALLEY, Ill. (WTHI) - Illinois State Senator Darren Bailey has filed legislation to eliminate Firearm Owners Identification or FOID cards.
He says there's been a backlog of unprocessed applications. As a result, Bailey said it has hurt people's Second Amendment rights.
Any Illinois resident who owns or buys guns or ammunition within the state must have a valid FOID card.
Applicants must pass a background check to receive one.
