Illinois House Democrats are trying to muster support to overturn Gov. Bruce Rauner’s veto of a bill that would require state licenses for gun dealers.
At a House committee hearing in Chicago, gun control supporters in the legislature hoped to use growing national sentiment in their favor. Activist Gayinga Washington told lawmakers she’s frustrated that no law has been passed yet.
“People are losing their lives while you’re squabbling about this and that and the other,” Washington said.
