WHY IT MATTERS:
This legislation was filed in response to the recent shooting at a Waffle House in Tennessee. The 29-year-old shooter has a history of delusions and run-ins with the law. Last summer he was arrested for trespassing near the White House. At the FBI's request, his Illinois firearms authorization was revoked, and four weapons -- including the AR-15 style rifle used in the shooting -- were seized. After the firearms seizure, he was legally prohibited from possessing guns. Authorities in Tazewell County, Illinois, gave the weapons to his father, who police believe later returned them to his son.
