A ban on bump stocks and more failed in the Illinois House. The bill would have made the trigger modification illegal to own and sell in Illinois but the bill would have gone further. Opponents made the case that it was too much, Democrat Jerry Costello says other standard modifications that people use for sport and hobby would have been banned; turning more guns into illegal ones.
The extensive reach of the bill is being reconsidered. And now one with only the bump stock ban is being shopped around the state house.
