SPRINGFIELD — Despite the urging of Gov. George Ryan, state lawmakers failed to vote Monday on a proposal to rewrite and restore the Safe Neighborhoods Act into law. Key legislators worked throughout the day to forge a compromise that would allow a new version of the law to be passed. But Ryan, who called the special session after the Supreme Court threw out the original law on a technicality, would not budge from his insistence that the new law retain a... (GunPolicy.org)

SPRINGFIELD — Gov. Ryan and Senate President James "Pate" Philip (R-Wood Dale) remained publicly at odds Monday on an anti-crime package, but behind-the-scenes talks on a possible legislative deal on guns edged forward.

For Stephen Young and other parents of murder victims, this week's legislative special session to wrangle over the recently overturned 1994 Safe Neighborhoods Act is a matter of life and death. "It's not about politics," said Young, whose son, Andrew, died in 1996 in Evanston when a teenager randomly shot him with a black market gun in a gang initiation. "It's about people burying their children, husbands burying their wives." Young and a coalition of gun-control... (GunPolicy.org)
