Best of: UI Law Dean talks assault weapons law and 2nd Amendment history
Soon after its passage, Illinois' new gun legislation faced several legal challenges, and an Effingham County judge has paused its enforcement for more than 800 plaintiffs in a case against the law.
For the final part of the show, The 21st was joined by the dean of the University of Illinois College of Law to discuss legal issues surrounding the bill and the second amendment more broadly.
This conversation originally aired Jan. 25, 2023.
