Illinois Senate Taking Up Bill Requiring 18-20-Year-Olds to Hand Over Certain Semiautomatic Rifles

Illinois Senate Taking Up Bill Requiring 18-20-Year-Olds to Hand Over Certain Semiautomatic Rifles

The bill, HB 1465, originated in the Illinois House, where it was sponsored by Rep. Michelle Mussman (D-Schaumburg).

Breitbart News reported that the House passed the measure by a vote of 64-51.

In addition to Mussman’s legislation, the Illinois Senate is also taking up other proposals that the NRA-ILA described as “extreme gun control bills.” These bills include a 72-hour waiting period on purchases of “modern semi-automatic firearms,” which would be a two-day extension of the one-day waiting period already in place for long gun purchases.

The NRA-ILA also pointed to a proposed state bump stock ban the Illinois Senate will consider on Thursday, noting that the ban is full of “broad and vague language [that] could be interpreted to ban components used on competition grade firearms.”
