The Gun Industry Accountability Act passed the Illinois General Assembly that will prohibit advertising and marketing that encourages para-Military or unlawful private militia activity; and prevent targeted advertising to minors. Governor Pritzker has already publicly stated he will sign it in May 2023.
Protect Illinois Communities Act was signed into law on January 10, 2023. It included an assault weapons ban and limit on large capacity and rapid fire devices. The AWB was immediately challenged based on the June 2022 NY Bruen SCOTUS case. However, on April 17, 2023 in a one-sentence order, the justices declined a request from an Illinois gun store owner and a gun rights group to block the state AWB ban law.
