Illinois Governor Wants to Bring Back Death Penalty

He is joined by a group of lawmakers to propose a new effort to license gun dealers and address illegal gun sales in the state

"I'm speechless!", he said in a classroom, literally, with a stopped clock, "On morning without speaking to anybody after the State of IL had a big discussion, led the country to ban the death penalty for a whole host of appropriate reasons, and then say here's what I want without consulting or working with anybody". "So many times the person's caught in the act or so many times there's multiple witnesses and they're fleeing the act and there's no question of who did it".

"We are distressed and alarmed by Gov. Bruce Rauner's call for the reinstatement of the death penalty in any way, shape or form", the conference said in a May 14 statement.

Current Illinois law mandates a 24 hour waiting period for purchases of assault-style weapons including AR-15s.

This might apply to people who're no less than 18 years outdated, the governor's workplace stated.

Rauner described the 72-hour waiting period as a "cooling off" period that extends IL 24-hour waiting period two more days.

It is now up to the legislature to reject or approve the governor's amendatory veto. In addition, it would also ban the sale of these firearms to non-residents. Gov. Rauner also suggested expanding the waiting period for all firearms. "The Governor understands it's not law-abiding gun owners that terrorize our state with violence, criminals and those that should not have guns are the root of gun violence problems".

Raoul said Rauner should be paying attention to public safety bills that have support from both sides of the aisle. But in including six elements, the chances of the General Assembly accepting his amendatory veto is slim. Rauner believes citizens, particularly victims and victims' families, ought to know why charges are reduced in plea agreements for violent offenders in gun cases.

The report said that the system was "so riddled with faulty evidence, unscrupulous trial tactics and legal incompetence that justice has been forsaken".

He wants the effort also to encompass gun control, mental health and school safety. The Working Group continues to meet and is expected to deliver additional recommendations. "This use of this sales tax revenue, provided it is approved by referendum, is a sensible step toward providing adequate security for our schools and giving more local control to our communities".

Rauner's proposal and his amendatory veto on Monday came as state lawmakers are looking to finish their work in the next two weeks, including passing a state budget.

The package fulfills the governor's pledge to deliver a comprehensive public safety package as a response to the mass killings in Parkland, Fla., last winter.
