Illinois House Poised To Act On Gun Control Plans
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois lawmakers are poised to take a big step toward tighter gun control laws in the state. The House is supposed to vote today on a number of plans that skated out of a statehouse panel yesterday, among them a proposal to increase the age to buy a rifle to 21 and tougher rules for small gun shop owners. Many Democrats say the tougher laws are needed, particularly after the school shooting in Florida. Some Republicans say the proposals are too broadly written and may be unconstitutional.
