New Illinois Gun Law: Background Checks Required on Private Sales and Report Stolen Weapons Within 72 Hours

The new restrictions will likely just push private transactions, which are now illegal in Illinois, across state lines to where they are legal.

A transaction isn't exactly private if you have to track it and request a background check, now is it?

Illinois gun owners will have to report missing firearms to police and check the background of potential buyers under a new state law.  Gov. Pat Quinn signed the legislation Sunday. 
Starting immediately, gun owners whose weapons are lost or stolen will have 72 hours to notify police. And beginning Jan. 1, individual gun owners will have to contact the Illinois State Police before selling a weapon or transferring ownership to ensure that the purchaser is allowed to have a gun.
