Quinn pushes for assault weapons ban in Illinois
CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn says the time for an assault weapons ban in Illinois is now.
The Chicago Democrat says the shooting in Connecticut, particularly the loss of so many children, should appeal to people's consciences. A gunman left 20 children and six adults dead at an elementary school.
He said Monday at an unrelated event in Chicago that he has reached out to top lawmakers and sponsors of a proposed assault weapons ban. The governor says lawmakers should consider the ban when they reconvene for the lame duck session in January.
