Illinois lawmakers are sending legislation banning assault weapons to the governor.
The bill will immediately outlaw the sale or manufacture of assault-style rifles in Illinois.
Those currently owning this type of firearm will have to register it with the state police.
Decatur representative Dan Caulkins voted against the measure.
The bill also aims to fight gun-trafficking and limits handgun magazines to 15 rounds.
It extends firearm orders of protection from six months to a year.
