Barbara Flynn Currie: Illinois Must Act on Gun Control


A top Illinois House Democrat is pressing ahead with gun legislation in the General Assembly, rather than waiting for Congress to act.

 

Even though President Obama has laid out a list of ideas to bring before Congress, House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie says the ongoing rash of gun violence in Chicago and around the state puts pressure on Illinois to act.

 

But Currie acknowledges that despite large Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate, there’s no guarantee of enough support to pass controversial measures like an assault-weapons ban or restrictions on large-capacity ammunition magazines.
