Durbin, Kirk, Quigley push for new gun laws
CHICAGO (AP) — Illinois politicians are taking a leading role in the push for tougher national gun laws.
On Friday, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin was in Chicago trying to earn support for two bills he co-sponsored. One would ban assault weapons and the other would crack down on straw purchasers who legally buy weapons for others who are prohibited from doing so.
Also on Friday, Chicago Democratic Congressman Mike Quigley reintroduced a bill that cracks down on the illegal gun market by improving gun tracking data.
