We Win Again!
IL House Judiciary Committee Chair Elaine Nekritz just announced that there would be no vote on SB2899 or any other assault weapons ban during the lame duck session!!
Rest up, folks, and lets get ready to fight this fight again when the new 98th General Assembly in sworn in next week!
This fight ain't over folks. The IL Dems will keep pushing. The only thing stopping them at this point is the lack of votes.
