FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: State Rep. Travis Weaver Responds to Illinois Supreme Court Upholding Democrats’ Gun Ban

Pekin, IL… State Rep. Travis Weaver (R-Edwards) issued the following statement regarding the Illinois Supreme Court’s recent decision to uphold the Democrat’s gun ban:  

“It’s very disheartening to see that the Illinois Supreme Court has upheld the Democrats’ gun ban,” said Weaver. “This is an attack on our individual liberties and rights guaranteed in the United States Constitution, and, as a gun owner myself, I understand the importance of being able to exercise your God-given Second Amendment rights. Thankfully, this ban is still making its way through the federal courts, and I’m hopeful that those challenges will result in a different decision.”
