To the Honorable Members of

The Illinois Senate,

100th General Assembly:

Today, I veto Senate Bill 315, which would require purchasers of pre-packaged explosive components to hold a FOID card.

This bill is an unnecessary state regulation of a Federal issue. Tannerite, the target of this legislation, is a stable explosive that requires a high-speed bullet to detonate; purchasing the firearms and bullets required to detonate Tannerite already is regulated by the Illinois FOID card system. If Tannerite or other binary mix explosive components require further regulation, it should be done at the Federal level by the Department of Justice and its bureaus.

Therefore, pursuant to Section 9(b) of Article IV of the Illinois Constitution of 1970, I hereby return Senate Bill 315, entitled “AN ACT concerning employment,” with the foregoing objections, vetoed in its entirety.
