Sen. Durbin: If Anybody Believes the Founding Fathers Had in Mind Assault Weapons Is Just Off Base Completely

‘This is unthinkable’
By Grabien Staff


DURBIN: “Our governor has led an effort in the Illinois General Assembly to pass an assault weapon ban. It is interesting because we now have a reaction from sheriffs around the state to say they won't enforce it. So we're going to be the ground zero for this debate in the weeks and months to come. But having seen the damage, the violence that came about in the Fourth of July, shooting at the parade in Highland Park, Illinois, where a fellow discharged 83 rounds in 60 seconds. This is unthinkable. Anybody who believes that's what the Founding Fathers had in mind historically, is just off base completely.”
