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.
