All but one Illinois GOP congressperson vote against gun control

5

Every Republican member of the Illinois congressional delegation, except for U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Channahon), voted against the gun control bill working through Congress.

Kinzinger is also the only GOP representative not running for reelection.

WGLT reported that Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) and Darin LaHood (R-Dunlap) had both voted against the bill. The bill, which would raise the age limit for purchasing a semi-automatic rifle to 21 and prohibit the sale of ammunition magazines with a capacity of more than 15 rounds, was introduced after the Robb Elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

According to Newsweek, Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) and Mary Miller (R-Oakland) also voted against the bill. Every Illinois Democrat voted in support of the bill.

The U.S. House passed the bill on a near party line vote. It now waits for U.S. Senate action.
