Speaking during floor debate, State Rep. Allen Skillicorn said outlawing so many common trigger modification devices under House Bill 4117 would make law-abiding gun owners across Illinois felons.
Today, State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) applauded the failure of House Bill 4117 to clear the Illinois House of Representatives. Skillicorn said the overly broad and vague nature of the legislation would have made law-abiding citizens across Illinois felons simply for possessing common firearm modification equipment.

“House Bill 4117, as so often happens, was too hastily and poorly crafted in response to a terrible situation,” said Skillicorn. “Because of this, the bill failed to address the fear it was attempting to protect against and instead would have turned law-abiding citizens into felons had it not failed in the House today.”
