Illinois get $1.2 million grant for gun background checks
background checks for would-be gun owners. This is another big step towards ensuring that guns do not get into the hands of the wrong people, and to secure the safety of the public. Federal law currently prohibits gun ownership to people who have judged dangerously mentally ill by a court, and to those who have been committed to a mental health institution. The $1.2 million grant will help Illinois automate how it will submit it’s mental health records to a national background check system. This seems to be a move in the right direction by the authorities, and the state paying for the screening checks rather than the buyers goes a long way in maintaining the validity of these screening processes. With seven other states also receiving the grant, hopefully this will have some effect.]]>
