Looks like it doesn’t matter when you got it?  Not sure though.

apparently, if you already own them you are grandfathered in to keep them, BUT you cant sell them to anybody in illinois.

this worries me. we live in such a world of fear anymore. if they can pass a law making a person show ID and sign for draino, then there’s no telling how far they will go. sad.

As long as you show proof of ownership within 90 days of law being passed.  As long as all your guns are actually registered in your name ???
