Down state representatives disagree with assault weapons ban

Posted:

Springfield – The Illinois house approved a series of measures that would ban semi automatic assault weapons.

 

One of those amendments would make it a felony for anyone to posses a military type assault weapon, or have large capacity magazines. The debate became heated, with leaders from the north praising the bill. Others like down state representative Brandon Phelps says the bill will prohibit hunting in Illinois.

 

The amendments were approved with democratic votes only. Republicans refused to cast votes.
