 Statement From Kathleen Sances, President & CEO of the Illinois Gun Violence Prevention PAC (GPAC)

“This veto is a punch in the gut to victims of gun violence and their families who dedicated years of their lives to get this bill passed. The Gun Dealer Licensing Act had the potential to save thousands of lives and instead of following suit with cities like the Village of Lyons, which passed its own version of this legislation catching 51 guns in the first year and a half alone, the governor instead decided to stand shoulder to shoulder with the NRA. And now, thousands more lives might be lost because of his inaction.”

 

About G-PAC:

The Gun Violence Prevention Action Committee (G-PAC) is a nonpartisan political action committee dedicated to electing public officials with the courage to stand up to the gun lobby. In 2013, gun violence victims and survivors created G-PAC to counter the political influence and clout of the gun industry. By providing strategic campaign support to committed legislators, G-PAC aims to protect communities from the gun violence epidemic, which takes an average of 1000 lives each year in Illinois.

With support from a growing bipartisan coalition of legislators committed to ending this epidemic, G-PAC fights for the passage of sensible gun safety measures supported by gun owners and non-gun owners alike. These measures include lifesaving legislation that keeps guns out of the hands of criminals, gang members, domestic abusers and the dangerously mentally ill.
