State Senator Neil Anderson (R-Andalusia) has released the below statement following the Senate’s passage of a bill to ban so-called “assault-style” weapons in Illinois:
“The Democratic Party has made it clear that our Constitutional rights don’t matter and the right to bear arms across our state sits at the hands of their party.
“In less than 48 hours, all of us are going to raise our right hand and pledge an oath to uphold the Constitution of Illinois and the Constitution of the United States. This is a blatant disregard for the United States Constitution. The clear language of the 2nd Amendment, ‘shall not be infringed,’ means nothing to them. We will finish this in court.”
