Lawmakers Concerned Over Recent Uptick In Mass Shootings

With the recent mass shooting in Highland Park, many lawmakers are scratching their heads trying to figure out ways to prevent another incident from happening. One Highland Park lawmaker says that they will consider all ideas no matter what they are.  Representative Bob Morgan says that his office has received many calls from constituents with many different ideas. 



Representative Morgan says that some of the pathways include an assault weapons ban, Social media awareness, and stopping loopholes in the state’s Red Flag Laws. 



Representative Morgan says they are still looking for blood and he encourages people to help donate blood or visit with the officials in their community to prevent something like this from happening there.



On the 4th of July, 21-year-old Robert Crimo III opened fire and killed 7 people and wounded dozens of others at a parade in Highland Park.
