Rep. Spain Responds to IL Supreme Court Firearm Ban Ruling

Following the 4-3 split ruling issued today by the Illinois Supreme Court to uphold the state’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” and “large capacity magazines,” House Deputy Minority Leader Ryan Spain (R-Peoria) issued the following statement in response:

“Just as with this court’s ruling to uphold the SAFE-T Act, today’s ruling to uphold this ban on commonly owned firearms by law-abiding citizens is a direct reflection of Illinois Democrats flexing their muscles through judicial gerrymandering and JB Pritzker’s wallet,” said Spain. “To come to this opinion, the majority even stated it had to side-step the second amendment question on procedural grounds, demonstrating the faulty nature of the ruling. Ultimately, it will be up to the federal courts to protect Illinoisans constitutional rights.”
