IL governor vetoes gun licensing bill

Gov. Bruce Rauner dripped veto ink on a controversial measure that would have added red tape to federally licensed gun dealers in the state

With the Republican primary just a week away, gubernatorial candidate Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) will hold a rally in Cahokia on Wednesday.

"The core issue is not which guns to legally ban or regulate", he said.

Democrats in the legislature are spooling up to attempt an override of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of a bill that would add state scrutiny to federally licensed IL gun dealers. The governor faces a tough primary challenge from conservative Jeanne Ives who says the governor has betrayed Republicans too often.

"I think it does create another layer after the federal government already has gun dealer licensing", Brady said. This is about his primary election and not his primary responsibility as governor.

Notable Mover: Rite Aid Corp (RAD)
Rhumbline Advisers reported 31,635 shares or 0% of all its holdings. (NYSE:OKE) on Tuesday, December 13 to "Equal Weight" rating. Jd Capital Management Llc sold 1.00 million shares as the company's stock declined 41.75% while stock markets rallied.

The Democratic-controlled General Assembly passed the measure and sent it to Rauner about two weeks ago, giving him 60 days to take action on it. While the purported intent of this legislation was to enhance "responsible business practices", these bills only prove that the intention is to close as many federally licensed firearm dealers (FFLs) as possible. "The governor's decision was cruel, it was cold and it was calculated to benefit his own politics at the expense of public safety". Third, we should find better more thoughtful ways to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.

The Legislature narrowly passed the gun store licensing bill last month, making it unlikely that Rauner's veto could be overridden.

Rauner said he supports banning bump stocks.
