Pro-gun Bills Pass Out of Illinois House Committee on Vote of 13-1
The lone negative anti-gun votes were cast by newcomer Rep. Kelly Burke (D) District 36.

Illinois –-( Several important pro-gun bills passed out the House Agriculture committee this past week and there seemed to be a repeating pattern to the votes cast.

The following bills have been passed in committee, all on a vote of 13/1/0:
