IL governor says gun control bill 'just not right,' promises veto

IL governor says gun control bill 'just not right,' promises veto

"It's unnecessary, burdensome regulation".

Rauner spokeswoman Rachel Bold says the governor will veto the measure Tuesday, a week before the state's primary election in which the Republican faces a challenge from state Rep. Jeanne Ives.

"I'm going to veto that bill, it's just not right", Rauner told southern IL radio station WJPF. "I think the governor is being swayed by business interests, the firearms industry, National Rifle Association lobbyists".

The bill was passed by Illinois' legislature just days after the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 people and spurred legislative action across the United States.

State lawmakers are taking sides in the marijuana legalization debate.

Rauner faces a challenge from conservative state Rep. Jeanne Ives (R), who voted against the firearms restrictions in the legislature. Dealers and their employees would also have to take training to make sure they know how to properly conduct background checks, store guns and stop thefts. Chicago does not have any gun shops, however city leaders are pushing the legislation because they say so many guns used in Chicago crimes are traced back to suburban dealers.

According to a report in a leading portal, a source also confirmed that what will be the very first post of Aamir Khan as well. Perfectionist of Bollywood has over 23 million followers on Twitter whereas his Facebook page is liked by 15 million people.

The primary election in the gubernatorial race is scheduled for March 20.

They noted that the state agency that would have to oversee licensing opposed it. Officials have raised concerns about the cost of launching the new rules, saying it would require more staff.

Supporters contend federal regulators are stretched too thin to regulate all the shops operating in IL, and cited data that showed a large percentage of weapons found at crime scenes come from a handful of sellers.

And at his side was Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson who said, "It baffles me, it really does, it baffles me that something as simple as this, requiring gun shops to be accountable, is hard to do". "Only one person can answer that", Emanuel said in a statement Tuesday. The General Assembly passed the measure about two weeks ago.

Rauner said he was seeking a "comprehensive solution". Rauner's decision to veto "is demonstrating that he refuses to listen to the majority of Illinoisans and children and parents who have begged and lobbied for the Governor to hear their cry", Pfleger said.
