Illinois' Firearms Owners Identification Act of 1967: Need Help Finding It

The University of Connecticut Law Review has handed me back by law review article with a stack of edits and requests.  One of the items that they want is the session law that created the 1967 Firearms Owners Identification Card, which appears to be the first Illinois law that prohibited mental patients from possessing firearms. I am having a heck of a time finding it.  It appears to start at page 2600 on the 1967 session laws -- but I can't find it online.

UPDATE: Thanks to both readers who scanned copies and sent them!


  1. does this help?

  2. This is the current version of the statute, which has been heavily amended since 1967. At least they should be able to find the session law from it.
