Gun ownership, purchases still popular

Illinois is not the best state to own a firearm. According to an annual ranking from Guns 'n Ammo Magazine, Illinois ranks 41st in the nation for gun ownership due to lawmakers banning many components legalized elsewhere, proposals to reform the state's FOID card and a crackdown on gun sales. In spite of that, federal records show a record number of gun purchases in 2020.
