  • 0

SPRINGFIELD (WSIL) -- Illinois lawmakers have voted to enact a ban on ghost guns. 

They are firearms made without a serial number. Illinois law enforcement has seen a big increase in those type of weapons of the last five years. 

Supporters say making sure guns have a serial number is vital to investigating violent crimes. 

The bill now heads to Governor JB Pritzker's desk.
