Illinois Democrats Push 'Assault Weapons' Ban, Firearm Registration

With Governor J.B. Pritzker (D) at the helm and Democrat-led majorities in the House and Senate, Illinois lawmakers are pushing an “assault weapons” ban and firearm registration requirements.

The Telegraph reports that an “assault weapons” ban–Senate Bill 107–is being sponsored by State Sen. Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield). The legislation bans the sale of numerous commonly-owned semiautomatic firearms including certain pistols and shotguns, and requires registration of certain firearms that gun owners may already possess.

The bill is written so that failure to register results in a felony charge.
