ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Friday, Illinois State Police announced webpage access for Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) to certify their licenses with ISP. It’s in compliance with a new state statute signed into law by Governor Pritzker at the beginning of the year.
The Firearm Dealer License Certification Act requires, “Each licensee (to) file with the Department a copy of its license, together with a sworn affidavit indicating that the license presented is in fact its license and that the license is valid.”
Beginning July 17, 2019, it will be unlawful for a person or entity to engage in the business of selling, leasing, or otherwise transferring firearms without a valid certificate of license issued under the Act.
Provisions are made for retail and non-retail locations, as well as businesses that have single or multiple locations. The statute gives the ISP 30 days to process applications for certification.
