The Governor of Illinois has shot down the Democrats’ attempt for more gun legislation, calling it “unnecessary.”
From The Hill:
Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) will veto legislation that would have required gun shops in his state to obtain licenses.
The measure passed the Democratic-controlled legislature just days after the mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school. It would have required gun dealers in Illinois to obtain a license through the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, to renew those licenses every five years and to train their employees to conduct background checks and spot potential straw purchasers.
But Rauner said Tuesday the measure amounts to burdensome regulation.
"I'm going to veto that bill. It's just not right," Rauner said in an interview with WJPF, a radio station in southern Illinois. unnecessary, burdensome regulation."
