Assault Weapons Debate Begins In House Committee


Familiar battle lines are being drawn as Illinois lawmakers tackle the issue of an assault weapons ban. 

 

The House sponsor of the bill, Representative Edward Acevedo says such guns are, quote, “weapons of war” that don’t have any place in our communities. 

 

But pro-gun groups say a ban would only deprive law-abiding citizens of weapons used for sport and self-protection.  And the Illinois Sheriff’s Association says a ban doesn’t address the real problem… the need for better mental health treatment in the state.
