    I'm not sure what that all means. I thought gun dealers already had to be licensed.

    From what I know?? The current Senate count is 37 liberals & 20 conservatives. The House is much more lopsided for the liberals. And it does take 30 votes to pass any legislation. So, as usual, the media can't wait to get all the details before they start posting articles. But this law is a very serious blow to gun dealers. And the law is sponsored by Bloomberg's anti-gun liberal organizations. With a liberal controlled IL House and Senate, it's almost sure to be passed. Our only hope is the Governor veto's the law and the State legislature cannot get the required votes to over-ride his veto.

    Edit: This is all I can find at present.
    The measure would allow Illinois to license gun dealers, currently gun dealers are only licensed through federal regulations. The legislation creates exemptions for big box stores, whose gun sales are 20 percent or less of their overall sales, and small dealers who sell under ten guns a year. The exemption of big box stores caused controversy from those on the right, who say that exemption will cause small businesses throughout the state to shut their doors.

    Sounds about right. Can't change the 2nd, so just make it harder for people to make a living, as if that's gonna have any effect on the gang activity.
