Rep. Davis Condemns Supreme Court Decision to Uphold Gun Ban

YORKVILLE – Following the release of the Illinois Supreme Court Decision to uphold legislation enforcing a gun and magazine ban, State Representative Jed Davis (R-Yorkville) released the following statement:

“I am incredibly disappointed by the Illinois Supreme Court’s decision to uphold this ban. The majority opinion side-stepped the second amendment question for procedural reasons, clearly showing the questionable ground the ruling stands on.

“This decision is unfortunately not surprising, though. The highly partisan Illinois Supreme Court has become a show of party politics and far-left shenanigans that devalue the Constitutions of our state and our nation. Their recent judicial opinions seem to be based in social justice politics and not in the clear reality of our legal system.

“Going forward, I am hopeful that the United States Supreme Court will strike down this poorly crafted law in favor of protecting one of the most essential American freedoms.”
