Quinn Pushes for Ban of Certain Weapons, Extended Ammunition Magazines


Governor Pat Quinn is once again calling for a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines in the state.

 

It’s not the first time the governor has raised the issue, but it has gone nowhere in the General Assembly.

 

But Quinn says continuing deadly gun violence in Chicago is evidence of, quote, “a war being waged on our streets,” and says the easy availability of military-style weapons is making that possible.

 

His bill would allow FOID card holders to keep assault weapons, but they could not sell them, except to family members.

 

It also calls for background checks before a weapon is transferred… except to a family member or at a gun show.
