Illinois State Police Looking To Crack Down On FOID Card System

State Police are working to fix loopholes in the Illinois Firearm Owners Identification Card system.

The efforts come almost one year after a gunman killed five people in an Aurora factory shooting.

That gunman, Gary Martin, was able to get an FOID card in spite of being a convicted felon.

The proposed legislation would require mandatory fingerprinting for renewing or getting a new card.
