Recent Illinois Gun Sales are Breaking State Records

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Recent Illinois gun sales are breaking state records. The jump in the sale of firearms reflects a national trend.

Illinois State Police did 418,000 background checks last year. The actual number of guns sold could be higher because some transactions involved multiple guns.

Some retailers say recent mass shootings and the state’s concealed carry law are the reasons for the increase.
