Gun dealers can certify firearms through the Illinois State Police Website

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois State Police say gun dealers can certify federal firearms licenses online to comply with a new state law. They said Friday that dealers can certify their licenses on the state police website to comply with the law intended to reduce the opportunity for illegal gun transfers. The law requires each licensee to file with the state police a copy of its license with a sworn affidavit indicating that license belongs to the dealer and is valid.
