Rauner vetoes gun retailer licensing legislation

Rauner vetoes gun retailer licensing legislation

"It's redundant on top of existing federal regulation, it's crushing to our small business owners and creates bureaucracy that really doesn't help keep our communities safer", he told WJPF radio in southern IL on Tuesday morning.

A day after repeatedly ducking questions about whether he would sign legislation to license gun dealers in Illinois, Gov. Bruce Rauner announced he plans to veto the measure. It's unnecessary burdensome regulation. Third, we should find better more thoughtful ways to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. Rauner is facing a challenge from conservative Illinois Rep. Jeanne Ives, who had urged the governor to veto the gun dealer licensing bill.

The gun dealer registration bill is just one of several gun-control measures that the Illinois General Assembly has discussed.

Harmon says he'll try to override the governor's veto, but he'll need support from senators who previously voted no.

Supporters of the measure accused Rauner of putting politics over doing the right thing. On Tuesday, Emanuel called the veto "a slap in the face to crime victims, faith leaders and police".

The measure passed the Democratic-controlled legislature just days after the mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school.

State Sen. Don Harmon, an Oak Park Democrat, and sponsor of the measure, says the governor's decision is about politics. Rev. Michael Pfleger, activist and pastor at St. Sabina Catholic Church on the South Side, expressed disappointment in a statement Tuesday morning.

Other measures still pending include a measure to ban bump stocks, which increase rifles' firing rates, and to prohibit anyone younger than 21 from buying assault-style weapons like the one used in the Florida shooting. The Senate has yet to vote on those bills.

Rauner On Monday offered his priorities on gun control to reporters.

"The core issue is not which guns to legally ban or regulate", he said. To make schools safer, Rauner suggested "highly trained, highly well-armed security personnel at our schools who are very, very talented and able to protect our students". It would have required gun dealers in IL to obtain a license through the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, to renew those licenses every five years and to train their employees to conduct background checks and spot potential straw purchasers. "What it looked like to me is just another tax on small business owners in light of unfortunate events to sock us for another $1,000".
