Tell Springfield: Enough is Enough

Illinois state lawmakers can save lives by passing a ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, but they need to hear from you.

Add your name to tell lawmakers to #HaltTheAssault and ban deadly military-style weapons in Illinois.

By the Numbers

Assault weapons make mass shootings in Illinois more deadly.

Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are designed to enact maximum destruction, making it easier for shooters to kill more people, more quickly. These lethal weapons are the guns of choice for individuals who carry out horrific public attacks, like we saw in Highland Park and the 29 mass shootings that took place in Illinois just this year. In Chicago alone, there were 24 mass shootings, which is the greatest number of mass shootings of any city in the U.S to date.

We must demand action to keep all of our neighborhoods safe.
