"It's just not right". It's unnecessary burdensome regulation. "It's crushing to our small business owners, and creates bureaucracy that really doesn't help keep our communities safer", he told WJPF News Radio in southern IL. It would have required gun dealers in IL to obtain a license through the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, to renew those licenses every five years and to train their employees to conduct background checks and spot potential straw purchasers. The Democratic-controlled General Assembly passed the measure about two weeks ago.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Superintendent Eddie Johnson joined members of the Illinois Gun Prevention Coalition to urge Governor Bruce Rauner to sign a new gun legislation that's been on his desk since last month. "It's just not right", Rauner said in an interview with WJPF, a radio station in southern IL.

"The governor's decision was cruel, it was cold and it was calculated to benefit his own politics at the expense of public safety". This veto is a slap in the face to crime victims, faith leaders and police who have pleaded with Governor Rauner to protect public safety by signing the Gun Dealer Licensing Act. Rauner said in the radio interview that laws should be tougher on repeat gun offenders.

The legislature is considering several other gun control measures, including bills to raise the minimum age at which someone could purchase an assault-style weapon, a ban on bump stocks and a 72-hour waiting period for assault weapon purchases. The Senate has yet to vote on those bills. It would also require training to help gun shop employees identify a buyer purchasing a gun for someone else. "To keep our schools safer, we could come up with ways to have highly trained, highly well-armed security personnel at our schools who are very, very talented and able to protect our students".
