New Legislation to Hold Parents Who Sign Child’s FOID Card Liable for Damages

(IOCI RADIO) – New legislation would make parents who sign off on their child’s FOID card criminally liable for any related damages.

The bill comes from Rep. Mark Batnick of Plainfield, who said because parents have to sponsor the FOID application if their child is under 21, they should be help responsible if that kid causes harm with a firearm.

The situation was seen in the Highland Park shooting, where the suspect had obtained a FOID card with his parent’s consent. despite some previous warning signs.
