No one can easily own it without having a license. Serious acts can be taken by the government authorities if you have any kind of gun at the age of 17. Illinois provides FOID card to the individual at the age of 21 and approves their application to give them license to carry ammunition and firearms. Illinois has very strict laws regarding firearms. It is difficult to carry a rifle in Illinois easily. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
