Firearms Services Bureau

The Firearms Services Bureau, through its FOID Program, determines the eligibility of applicants who wish to acquire, possess, or transfer firearms. The Bureau also administers the state’s Concealed Carry Licensing program. Through the Firearms Transfer Inquiry Program, federally licensed gun dealers are able to perform checks on potential buyers at the point of purchase. The Bureau also monitors and ensures those with a Federal Firearms License adhere to the Gun Dealer Licensing Act.
