Gun Trafficking Information Act
The Illinois Gun Trafficking Information Act (5 ILCS 830/10-5) requires the Illinois State Police (ISP) to use all reasonable efforts to make publicly available key information, on a regular and ongoing basis, related to firearms used in the commission of crimes in Illinois, including, but not limited to:
- reports on crimes committed with firearms
- locations where the crimes occurred
- the number of persons killed or injured in commission of the crimes
- the state where the firearms used originated
- the Federal Firearms Licensee that sold the firearm
- the type(s) of firearms used
- annual statistical information concerning Firearm Owner's Identification Card (FOID) and concealed carry license (CCL) applications and revocations
- compliance with Section 9.5 of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act
- firearm restraining order dispositions
- and firearm dealer license certification inspections
Through continuous data refinement and new collection methods, statistics accumulated starting July 1, 2022 (Fiscal Year 2023) can be viewed on the ISP Gun Trafficking Information Act Dashboard (link below). The Fiscal Year 2022 data will be available in a written report accessible on this site once it becomes available. The statistical information concerning FOID, CCL, firearm restraining order dispositions, and firearm dealer licenses can be found on the FOID/CCL Statistics page (link below).
The ISP Gun Trafficking Information Act Dashboard data includes ISP incidents where firearms were seized or used in the commission of a criminal offense or the possession of which constitutes a criminal offense (i.e., Possession of a Firearm without a FOID, etc.). The mere possession of a firearm during the commission of a criminal offense constitutes the "use" of a firearm in the commission of the criminal offense. Although collected, ISP is prohibited from disclosing Federal Firearms Licensee and state origination information.
