Illinois politicians continue reacting to Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas, but responses are falling down party lines.
As happens with just about every mass shooting, and the more routine violence that plagues parts of cities like Chicago, Democrats say it shows the need for tighter gun laws.
Illinois U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says military-grade weapons should not be considered normal.
But Republicans prefer to set aside those conversation, which is what Gov. Bruce Rauner did when asked whether he would support a so-called assault weapons ban.
