Illinois House Democrat Calls For Quick Action On Gun Laws


A top Democrat in the Illinois House says state lawmakers should move ahead with action on new gun laws, rather than waiting to see what Congress does.

 

House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie says the continuing gun violence in Chicago shows the need for the state to take action, regardless of what happens with President Obama’s call for tougher federal laws on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

 

But Currie acknowledges that similar bills in the state legislature are not assured of passage, despite big Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate.
