Simon pushing for assault weapons ban

Posted by wlpo on June 9, 2013

Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon is urging Illinois communities to consider banning assault-style weapons before a new law is enacted that could prohibit future bans. The Legislature approved a measure last month that would end Illinois’ last-in-the-nation prohibition on the concealed carry of firearms. It also would prevent local governments from approving bans on assault weapons. But Governor Pat Quinn, a fellow Democrat, hasn’t said whether he will sign the measure.
