Gun-rights partisans will argue that dealers are heavily regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF)…but are they? Anyone involved in gun violence prevention knows that accountability for illegal gun trafficking is lacking.
On Thursday, September 26 get a detailed look from Indivisible member and Deerfield resident Chris Naylor, understood through the story of an infamous crime dealer located almost in our backyard. This breakdown will shed light on a critical but under-appreciated law that prevents accountability for gun dealer negligence and makes it harder for law enforcement to control illegal gun trafficking in the United States.
Lake County Undersheriff Lawrence “Larry” Oliver and Sara Knizhnik, on behalf of the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and Illinois Gun Violence Prevention Coalition will also be attending.
