Background Checks For Gun Purchases Soar in Illinois


Background checks ahead of gun purchases have soared in Illinois in the days since the Connecticut school shooting.

 

The checks… which are required under state law… nearly doubled from last Friday, the day of the shooting, through Tuesday, compared to the same time frame a year ago.

 

Gun store owners and others think the surge in sales is driven primarily by concerns that new stricter gun laws could be enacted in the aftermath of the school shooting, so purchasers want to get the weapons while they can.
