- The Illinois state House backed a statewide ban on both assault weapons and high-capacity magazines on Tuesday, sending the bill to Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s desk for signature after the Senate approved the measure earlier this week.
- The House voted 68-41 to approve the ban, while the Senate backed it 34-20, according to CBS News.
- The measure further bans items that increase the firing rate of semi-automatic weapons such as bump stocks. It also limits magazine capacity to 10 rounds for long guns and 15 rounds for pistols.
