Ban High-Capacity Magazines in Illinois
This petition made change with 194 supporters!
Each year, the number of gun-related deaths in the U.S. exceeds 30,000. During the 12 months prior to May 31, 2018, there were over 20 mass murders involving firearms. The Journal of the American Medical Association calls these firearm-related deaths a health care crisis.
Some say the solution is to ban automatic weapons; others say the solution is to impose waiting periods, and the administration in Washington says one solution is to arm teachers.
But while we may not necessarily agree on the solution or the details, what is no longer in dispute is that something must be done. The status quo is not working. Change is needed.
Sign our petition to support a ban on high-capacity magazines in Illinois.
Multiple polls show that Americans favor by wide margins banning high-capacity magazines, so let us start where most of us agree.
In early 2018, legislation was proposed in Illinois that would ban the sale of body armor and high-capacity magazines to anyone other than police, licensed security guards and members of the armed forces. This law was proposed after police commander Paul Bauer was killed by an assailant wearing body armor and using an extended clip in his weapon.
This common sense proposal has remained stuck in Springfield.
Let Governor Rauner know that the time for inaction is over. Sign our petition to support a ban on high-capacity magazines in Illinois.
