(Chicago, IL) — The Illinois House is moving forward with several bills that put new restrictions on guns, especially those like the one used in the Florida school massacre. The House voted to raise the assault weapon buying age to 21, impose a waiting period on those guns and to ban bump stocks. The House also passed a bill to require gun dealers to have state licenses, conduct background checks and screen for straw purchasers. That bill now goes to the Governor. Bills to ban high capacity magazines and to limit access to body armor still await action.
