Gillespie: We have lost too many children to gun violence

gillespie guns 011719SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Ann Gillespie (D-Arlington Heights) released the following statement on statewide gun dealer licensing being signed into law this morning:

“We have lost too many children in this state to senseless gun violence. This law is not the solution to the problem, but it is a step in the right direction. People in the Northwest Suburbs are tired of gun violence and they want change. They welcome more oversight of gun purchases, and it is commendable that the state and responsible firearms dealers will be working together to achieve that.”
