Weapons

The Illinois House Human Services Committee has approved a bill (H.B. 1098) that would prohibit the manufacture, sale, or possession of .50 caliber sniper rifles in the state. The bill, which is awaiting a vote in the full House, is designed to prevent a terrorist from using the rifle to shoot down a civilian aircraft during takeoff or landing. Violating the law would be a felony under the new measure.
