Illinois House Passes Legislation to Prevent the Destruction of Firearms

The Illinois House of Representatives passed House Bill 4860, with House Amendment 1, by an 88 to 6 vote. Sponsored by state Representative Brad Halbrook (R-110), HB 4860, as amended, provides law enforcement agencies with the option to sell confiscated firearms at public auction rather than destroying or keeping them for agency use. HB 4860 now goes to the Senate where it will await a committee referral.
