|When you make that gun purchase, you exercise not only your freedom, but also responsibility. Guns require a rather high range of maintenance—cleaning, ammunition, and protecting your guns with a gun safe are all important for your gun collection.
However, practicing your current state’s gun laws is not just a responsibility—it’s the law. Whether you are for or against current legislation concerning gun policy in your state, it is your responsibility to obey the laws regardless. Here are gun laws of just a few states, but make sure to keep up to date on your own state gun laws:
California’s gun laws allow for easier purchase of rifles and shotguns, because the state does not require a permit or registration. Handguns, however, require registration whether you have purchased one or have moved from out of the state.
Those previously convicted of a felony may not own any sort of firearm, and certain misdemeanors will restrict firearm possession for ten years.
In Illinois, whoever purchases a firearm must show their Firearms Owner’s Identification Card (FOID). These are a few requirements for those looking to obtain this card:
• Must be over 21.
• Must have never been convicted of a felony.
• Must be a citizen.
Without a FOID, it is unlawful to possess any sort of firearm.
Texas offers a relatively lenient gun policy, requiring only a permit to carry a handgun. However, if the person looking to purchase a firearm intends to use it in an unlawful manner, it is illegal to sell the firearm to them.
