050423SC49311SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) released the following statement after the Illinois Supreme Court upheld the General Assembly’s assault weapons ban:

“The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the assault weapon ban is a vital step toward protecting our communities. I have always supported commonsense gun laws aimed at keeping dangerous weapons out of the wrong hands.

“By banning the future sale of assault weapons, Illinois takes a step forward in preventing further gun-related violence which threatens our most fundamental human right – the right to life.”
