The legislation (Senate Bill 3256) requiring a 72-hour waiting period between the time when one buys a gun and when one is allowed to take it from the store has passed both the Senate and the House.
Here is how it is described in the Legislative Digest:
Amends the Criminal Code of 2012. Provides that a person commits the offense of unlawful sale or delivery of firearms when he or she knowingly delivers any firearm, incidental to a sale, without withholding delivery of the firearm for at least 72 hours after application for its purchase has been made (current law permits delivery of a rifle, shotgun or other long gun, or a stun gun or taser after 24 hours after application for its purchase has been made).
Retains 24 hour withholding period for stun guns and tasers.
Provides that a violation is a Class 4 felony.
Eliminates the exemption from the waiting period requirements for the sale of a firearm to a nonresident of Illinois while at a firearm showing or display recognized by the Illinois Department of State Police.
