REPEAT GUN OFFENDERS COULD FACE TOUGHER PENALTIES UNDER LEGISLATION APPROVED BY THE HOUSE. 
 
THE MEASURE HAS BIPARTISAN SUPPORT AND IS DESIGNED TO HELP REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE IN CHICAGO AND OTHER CITIES. CRITICS SAY A LONGER SENTENCE DOESN’T NECESSARILY CURB CRIME…BUT REPRESENTATIVE DAVID HARRIS OF MOUNT PROSPECT SAYS THESE REPEAT OFFENDERS NEED TO BE LOCKED UP.
 
 
CRITICS, LIKE REPRESENTATIVE SONYA HARPER OF CHICAGO, SAY THIS WILL JUST PUT MORE MINORITIES BEHIND BARS.
 
 
THE SENATE MUST APPROVE A TWEAK THE HOUSE MADE TO THE BILL AND THEN IT WILL BE SENT TO THE GOVERNOR’S DESK FOR FINAL APPROVAL.
