On Tuesday, the Illinois House passed House Bill 5471, or the “Protect Illinois Communities Act,” described as “one of the strongest assault weapons bans in the country” by Democrat leaders in the state.

According to local news, the bill creates an “immediate ban on the sale and possession of defined assault weapons, although current legal owners may continue to keep their weapons under a grandfather clause. The ban also includes .50-caliber rifles and cartridges and rapid fire devices known as ‘switches.' Magazines will have a limit of 10 bullets for long guns and 15 for handguns.”
