History

Federal Firearm Licensees of Illinois (FFL-IL) is an association for federal firearms licensees in Illinois. Born out of the relentless attacks against FFL holders by anti-gun forces and their attempts to limit the number of FFLs in Illinois and impede the lawful business by licensees.

In 2017 a group of dealers became involved in successfully putting Senate Bill 1657 into remission. This was the spark that inspired interested FFL holders to form FFL-IL to speak on behalf of ALL dealers to our legislators in Springfield, IL.

Purpose

Anti-gun groups want to blame the “gun dealer” for the acts of criminals, gang members’ and others. They view you, the Licensed Firearms Dealer, as a co-conspirator to the criminal underworld, and they want you run out of business.

FFL – IL is dedicated to battling this assault on FFL holders by providing accurate information, full time representation in Illinois legislature, and tools to mobilize against damaging bills. Our objective is to keep each member of FFL-IL informed and organized, as a collective whole, to work with Illinois legislators to have our voice heard on all matters affecting the business operation of licensed dealers.
