Audit: State gun program 'limited' in protecting safety
SPRINGFIELD – A new audit says Illinois State Police officials are not getting mental health information they need to revoke gun owner's permits, aren't retrieving canceled permits and aren't reporting proper information to the FBI.
Auditor General William Holland's report Thursday found the Firearm Owners Identification program is "limited" in protecting the public."
Holland found that in 2010 only three counties statewide submitted mental health records police need to revoke or deny FOID cards. He also found the state doesn't track information that federal officials require to make decisions about firearm possession.
