Senator McClure statement on Illinois Supreme Court Ruling on Gun Ban

State Senator Steve McClure (R-Springfield) released the following statement following the Illinois Supreme Court’s ruling on the state’s recently enacted gun ban:

“This ruling went as expected, with Illinois’ very political state Supreme Court ruling to protect their allies in the majority party. There are lawsuits against this ban which are still underway in the federal system, and which have a much better chance of getting a fair ruling on the merits of the law. I believe the gun ban is unconstitutional, which is why I joined with a bipartisan group of lawmakers to oppose it in the General Assembly. I am optimistic that our nation’s highest court will agree and will overturn the law.”
