Durbin Calls for Assault Weapons Ban, Limits on Ammo Clips


The Connecticut school rampage is leading to more calls to clamp down on access to certain types of weapons.

 

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin says a national conversation is needed, soon, on guns.

 

He is calling for a number of changes… including reinstatement of a federal assault weapons ban, limits on the size of ammunition clips, and more stringent background checks.

 

Governor Pat Quinn has also endorsed similar measures.

 

Quinn is promising to pursue, quote, “strict laws that will protect our children and the people of Illinois from gun violence.”
