DEERFIELD, IL – Longtime gun control advocate Illinois Senator Julie Morrison spoke on her ratings from gun groups. Morrison was endorsed by the Gun Violence Prevention PAC (G-PAC) of Illinois and received an “F” grade from the National Rifle Association (NRA).
I’m very proud to be endorsed by G-PAC,” said Morrison. “They are a strong ally in the fight against gun violence. I’m also the only candidate in my race to receive and “F” from the NRA. The NRA consistently blocks reasonable legislation under the guise of defending the 2nd Amendment. I’ll keep standing up for our families, and fighting for commonsense gun laws that will make our communities safer.”
Senator Morrison has been a leader on gun control in the General Assembly. She has sponsored legislation to close loop holes in mental health reporting to the state police, and is the chief sponsor of legislation that would give municipalities back their local control to ban assault weapons. Morrison also supports state licensing of gun shops to make sure anyone selling a gun illegally is held accountable, and increased sentencing of repeat gun offenders.
“G-Pac is proud to endorse Senator Julie Morrison for re-election because of her unwavering commitment to end gun violence,” said G-PAC Executive Director Kathleen Sances. “Julie has taken leadership on this issue in the Senate, and is a strong voice to protect our communities and families.”
Julie Morrison is running for State Senate in the 29th Legislative District. Morrison is a leader in the field of child welfare, gun control, and a strong advocate of fiscal responsibility and ethical government
