Madigan Orders Police To Release Names Of Gun Owners

CHICAGO (WBBM) — The names of the Illinois residents who can legally carry a gun may soon be made public.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says state police must release the names of everyone in the state who is authorized to own a gun, Newsradio 780’s Steve Miller reports.

State police determine who gets to own a gun, and they’ve always kept the list of people who hold Firearm Owners Identification Cards private.

State police haven’t said whether they will comply with the ruling.
