Illinois Gun Bill Requires Buyers To Turn Over List of Social Media Accounts Add Video

The Western Journal Published on Feb 7, 2019 A proposed Illinois bill would require gun buyers to provide their social media accounts for officials to inspect before they are issued a Firearm Owner?s Identification Card. Democratic State Rep. Daniel Didech of Buffalo Grove said that his inspiration for the proposal came from aberrant social media postings by gunmen in high-profile mass shootings, WBBM-TV reported. The bill, HB0888, ?(a)mends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that the Department of State Police shall conduct a search of the purchasers? social media accounts available to the public to determine if there is any information that would disqualify the person from obtaining or require revocation of a currently valid Firearm Owner?s Identification Card. Provides that each applicant for a Firearm Owner?s Identification Card shall furnish to the Department of State Police a list of every social media account,? according to the online summary of the legislation. The bill is currently pending in committee.
