Democratic Governor Candidate Chris Kennedy is calling on lawmakers to rethink gun laws after the latest mass shooting in Texas. 
 
Kennedy is upset that the shooter in the Texas church shooting had a record of domestic abuse. Kennedy would like to see laws here like other states where a gun owner forfeits the right to own the firearm if they are involved in a domestic dispute. 
 
Kennedy expressed disappointment with last month's defeat of legislation banning so called bump stocks. Kennedy also spoke in support of a measure that imposes stricter regulations on gun dealers, and closing gun show loopholes. 
 
Lawmakers are back in Springfield today to start the final week of the fall veto session. Legislation calling for licensing of gun dealers could surface.
