Attorneys common from Illinois, 16 different states supporting federal firearm age restrictions | Nationwide Information

Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul supports state regulations against the commercial sale of firearms to anyone under the age of 21.

Raoul, along with 17 other attorneys general, filed a brief supportive ban that is challenged in the Hirschfeld lawsuit against Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives. The lawsuit challenges federal law banning individuals ages 18-20 from buying handguns from state-licensed dealers.

A three-person appeals court ruled the law unconstitutional. The federal government is calling on the entire court to reconsider the case.

Governor JB Pritzker celebrates a law aimed at improving equal access to digital education for all Illinois students.

The attorneys general argue that common sense and age-related restrictions are not unconstitutional and will help reduce gun-related violence.
