Illinois: New bill would implement mandatory fingerprinting, other gun control measures

According to 25 News and week.com, a Cook County Democrat is proposing a slate of new gun control measures with the backing of law enforcement and activist groups:

“We were shown the glaring need for this legislation earlier this year when a man who should never have been allowed to obtain a firearm killed five people and wounded seven more – including our brave first responders,” said Willis. “A serious approach to keeping our communities safe starts with properly enforcing gun safety laws. This bill makes it clear that we are serious about keeping guns out of the wrong hands.” - State Rep. Kathleen Willis
