Bob has been a strong voice in Springfield advocating for the creation of sensible gun control measures. Bob was the lead sponsor of the Protect Illinois Communities Act which banned the sale of assault weapons and large capacity magazines in Illinois.  PIC alo extended red flag laws, outlaws rapid-fire devices and expanded our efforts to combat illegal gun trafficking across state lines.  Despite this progress, much work remains to protect our state from the horrors of gun violence like that which shook our community during the July 4th, 2022 Highland Park Mass Shooting.

Bob supports sensible police reform that both supports our police force and keeps our communities safe. As Chair of the Illinois House Firearm Safety & Reform Workgroup, Bob will continue to be a champion for policies that make our communities safer.
