Mayor Emanuel, Supt. Johnson urge governor to sign gun bill

This David and Goliath matchup was prompted when Gov. Rauner reneged on his promise to veto an abortion funding bill.

Other measures still pending include a measure to ban bump stocks, which increase rifles' firing rates, and one to prohibit anyone younger than 21 from buying assault-style weapons like the one used in the Florida shooting. Jeanne is a West Point graduate and member of the Illinois Legislature, and she is also gutsy to contend against her party's sitting governor.

He also said the debate over licensing gun dealers is not a new one in IL, noting it has been debated in the General Assembly since 2003.

"This is not a time for hemming and hawing".

Rauner On Monday offered his priorities on gun control to reporters. This has been in the works for 15 years. "Men, women, gun owners and those who don't own guns", Harmon said.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel listens to Delphine Cherry speak a press conference held to urge Gov. Bruce Rauner to sign gun legislation that has been approved by the Illinois House and Senate.

"With one week left in his campaign, Governor Rauner just put his primary election ahead of his primary responsibility to protect the safety of the people of Chicago and Illinois", Emanuel said. Advocates say it would be easier to track the 40 percent of Chicago crime guns purchased in-state.

The bill on Rauner's desk would require gun dealers to be licensed by the state, and not just by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. "It won't bring back our loved ones, or Commander Bauer, but it's the least we can do to show their families that we remember them and are fighting for their memories and legacies", Johnson said. Dealers and their employees would also have to take training to make sure they know how to properly conduct background checks, store guns and stop thefts.

"We license barber shops. It's a loophole that needs to be closed", Emanuel said.

The sponsor, Addison Democratic Rep. Kathleen Willis, has said that state oversight would identify and eliminate the practice of straw purchasers buying guns legally and then selling them to criminals. "Nobody's saying this is going to solve everything. Yes or no. Licensing gun shops or not", the mayor said, arguing that the bill on the governor's desk would provide a "hermetic seal" across the state that's the next best thing to a nationwide gun licensing bill. But the massacre in Parkland and the murder of a Chicago police officer last month spurred the Assembly to act on the measure, which had already cleared the Senate.
