Central Illinois Lawmaker Calls Gun Debate Aversion Diversion From Larger Issues

New gun laws were on the agenda last week as a part of the fall veto session and a central Illinois lawmaker believes the debate is a distraction from bigger issues in the state. The banning of bump stocks in Illinois is the hot topic surrounding the gun debate but Senator Chapin Rose says when someone is insane, they will get what they need for the destruction they intend. He feels efforts would be better served to address mental health.

Rose feels the discussion is just an effort to divert the public's attention from the bigger issues in Illinois.

One measure for bump stocks failed last week with another measure being discussed in Springfield.
