Ann Gillespie Speaks Out About Tighter Controls on Gun Dealers

February 21, 2018

Ann Gillespie, democratic candidate for the Illinois Senate’s 27th District, spoke out about the need for tighter controls on gun dealers at the Feb. 19 Arlington Heights Village Board meeting.

Ann said while canvassing District 27 in the days following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, last week, residents told her loud and clear they want something done about gun violence.

Ann spoke as a member of the League of Women Voters – Arlington Heights, Mt. Prospect, Buffalo Grove. The LWV and Gun Violence Prevention PAC (GPAC) asked the Arlington Heights Village Board to officially go on record with our state legislators in support of SB 1657, the Gun Dealers Registration Act.

“It’s a small first step that we can and must take to keep our children and others safe,” Ann said.
