Death penalty in the state of IL

Democrats accused Rauner, who faces a re-election challenge, of using the death penalty as a political weapon.

Illinois' death penalty was abolished in 2011, under then-Governor Pat Quinn. He said, "If someone is perhaps on the verge of committing suicide, if someone is potentially a unsafe person and they have violent acts in mind, that extra two days could make the difference between life and death".

"Both of those I think are good [messages]", said Sen.

The new gun legislation bill would require anyone purchasing assault rifles to wait for 72 hours before picking up their firearm from a gun dealer. It would apply to offenders 18 and older who prosecutors charge with killing peace officers or two or more people without lawful justification.

On Monday, Governor Bruce Rauner announced that he is proposing re-instating a portion of the death penalty in Illinois - a measure which is a part of an amendatory veto that will first go to the Illinois House.

"It's an emotional issue for the victims of the crime and the family members of those who have been convicted whether that sentence should be the death penalty", said Sen.

Rep. Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) has pronounced three amendatory vetoes being proposed by Gov. Bruce Rauner as "nonstarters" in terms of garnering his support. "And there are many instances the place there's little doubt who's responsible and so they deserve to surrender their life after they take the lifetime of a police officer". Currently, there is a waiting period for handguns. The governor additionally sought so as to add a ban on bump shares to the invoice, he stated on social media.

The governor's public safety package would also authorizing 14 restraining orders on guns to "help disarm people who are a danger to the public and themselves" with probable cause. "The Governor understands it's not law-abiding gun owners that terrorize our state with violence, criminals and those that should not have guns are the root of gun violence problems". But in including six elements, the chances of the General Assembly accepting his amendatory veto is slim.

Prosecutors and judges would also be required to clearly state the rationale for any plea agreements, especially those for "habitual" gun offenders.

"Yes, I do. I think that probably prevented a few of these mass shootings, you know with the mental health of the person shooting", said Fuoto.

It noted that Rauner's rewrite of the measure allows him to push a tough-on-crime mentality while also tackling the issue of gun violence following the high profile school shooting in Parkland, Fla., on February 14. The proposal is part of a comprehensive public safety initiative.
