Governor Pat Quinn Statement on House Bill 1346

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn released the following statement on the Illinois Senate’s failure to pass House Bill 1346, a bill that would prohibit the sale of high capacity ammunition magazines in Illinois.

“I met with the families of Newtown, Conn., as did many lawmakers, and we have seen the devastation that high capacity ammunition magazines have done to families across our nation.

“Today lawmakers had the opportunity to minimize the chance of this unthinkable violence happening in Illinois.

“I am very disappointed that members did not pass common sense legislation that would have no impact on hunting.

“I will continue to fight for limits on high capacity ammunition magazines in our state.”
