SPRINGFIELD -- The Illinois Senate has OK'd legislation regulating the private sales of guns and requiring the reporting of lost or stolen guns to authorities.
The Senate voted 41-15 on the bill that popped up on the floor Friday for the first time. It came right after the chamber approved the carrying of concealed guns.

The measure sponsored by Sen. Kwame Raoul, a Chicago Democrat, requires a person selling or transferring a gun to verify the buyer has a valid Firearm Owners Identification card.
It also requires lost or stolen guns be reported within 72 hours.
Both measures were part of Raoul's concealed-carry bill before gun advocates protested.
The bill goes to the House on the legislature's last day in session.
