Springfield Aldermen Have No Interest In Local Assault Weapons Ban


Despite Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon’s suggestion that local communities move quickly to pass their own assault weapons ban… before they lose the ability to do so… there appear to be no takers for that idea in Springfield.  

 

The concealed carry legislation on Governor Pat Quinn’s desk would eventually prohibit home rule communities like Springfield from passing their own weapons ban, something they can do under current law. 

 

But a check with a number of city aldermen finds there has been no discussion… and no apparent interest… in pursuing the idea here.  Aldermen Doris Turner and Tim Griffin both say any such policies should be statewide… not piecemeal around the state.
