In response to a nationwide call for tighter gun laws, the Illinois Senate Wednesday passed several measures. But so far Illinois has no new laws from that effort.
Following the lead of students across the country, a couple dozen senators staged their own brief walkout in memory of the Parkland, Florida shooting victims. Later, they voted on several proposals, including one to increase the wait time when purchasing an assault weapon from one day to three days.
That's the only measure to pass both the House and Senate, and will be sent to Governor Bruce Rauner.
