Illinois State Attorney General Lisa Madigan has demanded that the Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) list be made public. The list, containing the information of all gun owners in the state who are legally obligated to register with the police to own a firearm, holds the private information of 1.3 million cardholders. Cam Edwards speaks with State Representative Ron Stephens who introduced legislation to protect this information from disclosure, but the bill has been stalled by "Illinois politics" and a 5-5 committee vote.
