About six months after the Highland Park mass shooting, Illinois lawmakers advanced a bill to ban assault weapons.

Illinois House Votes to Ban Assault Weapons and Broaden Abortion Protections

Tackling two hot-button issues, the Illinois House debated early into Friday morning and ultimately voted to ban military-style guns like the one used in the Highland Park mass shooting and to protect abortion providers and patients from out-of-state legal repercussions.

The late-night, lame-duck maneuvering comes as lawmakers are set to conclude their two-year legislative cycle next Wednesday and positions the state Senate for final action on the measures.
