Senator Villivalam is leading the push for stricter gun laws
WSILTV April 1, 2021- Senator Ram Villivalam is sponsoring a bill to require background checks and allow Illinois State Police to look into improving the FOID card system. In addition, it could provide funding to communities most affected by gun violence.
“The statistics do not lie,” said Villivalam. “If we have a strong licensing system and combine that with background checks, the statistics show that gun violence will be reduced by 40%.”
