We Must Keep Guns Out of the Hands of Criminals
July 9, 2014

Following a violent Fourth of July weekend in Chicago, and to address the nationwide epidemic of gun violence, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today introduced an amendment that would strengthen federal criminal penalties for straw purchasers and illegal traffickers of firearms. Much of the gun violence in Chicago involves guns that were straw purchased -- when an individual with a clean background buys a gun for someone who is prohibited from obtaining one -- or illegally trafficked into criminals' hands.
