75 people were shot with 13 people losing their lives due to out of control gun violence in the city of Chicago over the weekend. The citizens of Illinois are being subjected to constant violence on our streets as Illinois Democrats refuse to acknowledge their soft-on-crime approach to criminal justice isn’t working.
State Rep. Mike Marron, R-Fithian, said the Democrats’ plan to remove certain semi-automatic firearms has not made the state safer.
“I thought we fixed this. They claimed that they fixed this, we banned assault weapons, and we did all this, and it was supposed to fix this,” Marron told The Center Square. “It didn’t.”
