Gov. signs gun law on background checks, thefts

CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois gun owners who fail to report the theft or loss of a weapon will face tougher restrictions under a new law signed by Gov. Pat Quinn on Sunday. Quinn, a staunch supporter of gun control, signed the legislation at a South Side Chicago park where off duty Chicago police officer Thomas Wortham was fatally shot in May 2010. Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez said the legislation will help police identify suspicious patterns of behavior by persons who fail to file reports yet claim their guns were lost or stolen after they are recovered at a crime scene.
