(The Center Square) – The list of about 170 different semi-automatic guns now banned in Illinois could change with state police granted the authority to update the list “as needed.”
Possession of guns legally purchased before Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the measure Tuesday are grandfathered in, but owners must eventually register each weapon’s serial number. Illinois State Police are to develop the registry with gun owners required to comply by Jan. 1, 2024. Violations could be a Class 2 felony.
Long gun magazines of more than 10 rounds and handgun magazines of more than 15 rounds are banned in the state of Illinois. Those don’t have to be registered, but are grandfathered. However, violations of having them outside of private property is a petty offense with a fine of $1,000 for each infraction.
Gun-owner rights’ groups plan to sue but the measure is in effect absent any court orders.
While the legislation lays out a list of the banned firearms, House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch said the law gives Illinois State Police some leeway.
“It strengthens the assault weapons ban by also allowing Illinois State Police to update the list as needed,” Welch said.
The legislation says that “No later than October 1, 2023, and every October 1 thereafter, the Illinois State Police shall, via rulemaking, identify, publish, and make available on its website, the list of assault weapons subject to an endorsement affidavit.”
“The list shall identify, but is not limited to, the copies, duplicates, variants, and altered facsimiles of the assault weapons … and shall be consistent with the definition of ‘assault weapon’ identified” in the law.
The list of guns in the law are below.
