How to register a gun in IL?

Peoria, IL |

My grandpa in missouri passed away, and my dad wants to pass down his rifles to me here in IL. I already have a void card, I just do not know how to register a gun being given to me .

  1. The answer largely in part depends on where you live, and I'm also assuming you mean a F.O.I.D card (Firearms Owners Identification), opposed to a "void card." Many municipalities have unique firearms registration requirements that often require payment of a fee, completion of an application, along with fingerprinting and a criminal background check to show you can legally possess the firearm and properly register it.
