With some on the campaign trail saying there needs to be more gun control, a gun rights group sees legal victories in the future. Candidates like incumbent Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker have been on the campaign trail saying the state must pass stricter gun control following several mass shooting events. Guns Save Life Executive Director John Boch (bawk) said any such attempts will be challenged in the courts.
Gubernatorial candidate Republican Darren Bailey opposes strict gun control measures. Libertarian Scott Schluter supports abolishing the state’s Firearm Owner’s Identification Card in support of constitutional carry.
