SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Continuing her efforts to protect Illinois families from senseless gun violence, state Rep. Michelle Mussman, D-Schaumburg, met with local Moms Demand Action members last week at the State Capitol to discuss new firearm safety legislation.
“Despite the progress made in enacting real, commonsense gun safety laws, we must continue to work together to strengthen these measures in order to keep weapons out of the wrong hands and protect our families,” Mussman said. “I stand with groups like Moms Demand Action who call on legislators to put the safety of our families first.”
Mussman has been a committed advocate for gun safety reforms since entering the General Assembly, backing measures to ban bump stocks and trigger modifications and require licensing for gun dealers to ensure that dangerous weapons do not fall into the wrong hands. Mussman is currently supporting measures to prohibit individuals from possessing or selling firearms that are undetectable by metal detection and X-ray devices, and to require child care facilities to create emergency plans of action in case of an active shooter scenario.
“As a state representative, keeping Illinois families safe from senseless gun violence is one of my top priorities,” Mussman said. “I will continue to support measures that keep firearms out of the wrong hands and protect our communities from tragedy.”
