Gun advocates demo suppressors in Illinois, push for legislation (VIDEO)

More than a year after the gun lobby successfully pushed for concealed carry here in Illinois, it’s now focused on a new issue – legalizing gun suppressors.

Gun suppressors are legal in 39 other states. Advocates say it will help with noise complaints and help with hearing problems that can come with shooting. And those working to change the law say the tools come with a lot of misconceptions.

Gun suppressors are most commonly seen in movies and gun rights advocates say that’s not an accurate representation.
