Rep. Kathleen Willis Addresses Gun Control Debate


Illinois House Democrats

The recent string of mass shootings across the country have reignited the debate about gun control. During the COVID-19 pandemic, residents bought more guns, and applied for more firearm permits than any other time in history, according to state police. To speak more about the topic, The 21st was joined by a Democratic member of the Illinois House of Representative whose district includes northwest suburbs of Chicago, includes O’Hare International airport, parts of Elk Grove Village, Bensenville, Addison, Melrose Park and North Lake.
