gunSPRINGFIELD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield) issued the following statement this afternoon regarding the Fix the FOID Act:

“The tragic shooting in Aurora just three months ago exposed a major loophole that exists in our state law that allowed someone with a history of domestic violence to keep his firearm and kill five innocent individuals. While I am disappointed that the Senate was not able to call this legislation for a vote, I firmly believe we have developed the framework necessary to ensure that guns aren’t in the hands of those who under the law should not possess them.

“Many of my colleagues have requested more time to understand the vitally important components of our proposal. In the months ahead, I will be working with Senators both formally through subject-matter hearings and informally through conversations to ensure that there is no question that we must act to close this loophole.”
