Over 200 new laws in Illinois: here are three you should know

You can expect a lot of change in Illinois with 200 new state laws going into effect in the New Year. The three laws highlighted below affect current inmates, individuals suspected of drug-induced homicide and juvenile offenders. And, even if you don't fall into any of those categories, you may still be affected if you have loved ones that do.

Gun ownership can lead to unlawful discharge

Gun ownership is expressly protected by the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

An overview of gun possession laws in Illinois

No matter what people think about guns and their use, gun control is generally a difficult subject. Many people believe that guns are necessary for their safety and the safety of their family; others believe that guns are a danger to everyone.

Regardless, the state of Illinois has put laws into place that specify exactly what types of guns people are legally allowed to possess and how people are allowed to get, have and use them. Illinois also has severe penalties for people who break these laws.
