SB2314 Julie A. Morrison ASSAULT WEAPONS-MUNICIPALITY
Synopsis: Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that the regulation of the possession or ownership of assault weapons are exclusive powers and functions of each municipality (rather than this State) . Eliminates existing preemption provision concerning the regulation of assault weapons. This provision would mean, if passed, that a person maybe fully legal in one municipality but if transporting a particular firearm to another municipality be in violation of that municipality’s law. The ISRA’s view is that this should remain the purview of the State and NOT individual municipalities.
