With shootings on the rise, law enforcement has become very aggressive in pursuing gun charges or other offenses involving the unlawful possession of firearms and/or ammunition.

Generally, a person may only possess a firearm while on their own property with a valid FOID card and if the firearm(s) have been properly registered with the Illinois State Police. However, Illinois has recently passed concealed carry laws that make it legal under some circumstances for a person to carry a gun in public. These laws are very specific and are strictly enforced.
