The search warrant was issued in connection with a spate of drive-by-shootings in the area. Ms. Stevens was placed under arrest after the police allegedly found illegal drugs and a handgun with the serial numbers removed. She may also face being charged with not having a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card, required by Illinois law to keep legal firearms. In a statement to the press, Stevens said the gun belonged to her son who died in a shooting in mid-2003, that when she discovered it about a half year following his death, she didn't know what to do with it, and put it in a drawer. Richard Pearson, Executive Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, commented: "She could face felony charges. I find it incredible that someone representing an organization that pushes legislation that only punishes law-abiding gun owners would possess such an illegal weapon." "Surely she must be familiar with US gun laws and those in Illinois, considering the position she holds. Does she think the law does not apply to her due to anti-gun affiliation? It's the height of hypocrisy!" "It's a classic case of liberal elitists who say 'Do as I say' but cannot walk their own talk." Pearson concluded.
