Looks like the new law cut the number of FFLs more than in half here in Illinois. 21 brick and mortar stores selling firearms have already closed, no longer selling firearms, or left the state.

In December, 2018, the BATFE reports that Illinois had 2,436 federally licensed dealers (Type 03 Curios and Relics dealers excluded).

Just two days before the July 17th deadline, the Illinois State Police reported to media that 1,140 dealers had applied for their Illinois licensing. That’s only 46% of dealers reported at the first of the year that wised to remain in the business of selling guns.
