G-PAC Reacts to Supreme Court Ruling that Permits Handguns in Public Spaces
Chicago — The Gun Violence Prevention PAC (G-PAC) released the following statement in response to this morning’s ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that permits handguns in public spaces at the cost of public safety.
“The Supreme Court’s decision in the New York case does not threaten any of our Illinois gun laws. It explicitly affirms the constitutionality of concealed carry permit laws like the one Illinois adopted in 2013,” said Kathleen Sances, President & CEO of the Gun Violence Prevention PAC. “The ruling also recognizes that states may adopt a variety of regulations on who may own or carry guns and the types of guns that are lawful. We will continue to work for the effective enforcement of our existing laws and for new commonsense laws that are constitutional.”
