A new law in Illinois will require background checks for all gun sales in the state by 2024.
Governor J.B. Pritzker calls if the most comprehensive reform to the state's firearms laws in over a generation.
The measure also provides funding for mental health programs in communities most impacted by gun violence and creates a stolen gun database.
The plan modernizes the Firearm Owner Identification Card System allowing Illinois State Police to create electronic records, and streamlining licenses, which is the first update to the system in decades.
The new law takes effect next year.
