An Illinois lawmaker wants to make it harder for stolen cell phones to be sold on the black market.
Tuesday's primary for Chicago-area Democrats voting to replace former Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. could be the first indication of whether gun control will take center stage in next year's congressional races.
Ripples from the deadly shootings in Connecticut are already affecting political campaigns, including a special congressional election in Illinois where a gun rights supporter is calling for tighter gun controls as part of her agenda.
Hutchinson says the bill will help reduce an incentive for thieves to steal smart phones.
"Unlike others in this race, I have been a consistent voice in standing up to the National Rifle Association and their shortsighted policies that put our families at risk," she said.
