Gun Law Legislation Introduced in Fall Veto Session

Gun Law Legislation Introduced in Fall Veto Session

Lawmakers introduced a number of bills for the fall veto session that are in response to the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Many of the bills are focused on banning the sale or possession of bump stocks. A device that can be used to make a semi-automatic gun fire more like an automatic weapon. Democrat Marty Moylan says the bills are a responsible move – not an overreach.

Some of the bills also include an outright ban of assault rifles. Todd Vandermyde with the N-R-A says most of them go too far.

The Illinois State Rifle Association is reportedly negotiating with lawmakers on a bill outlawing the sale or possession of bump stocks.
