Governor Quinn Renews Call for Illinois Assault Weapons Ban
Quinn says assault weapons don't belong in everyday public places like schools, shopping malls or sports stadiums. He says lawmakers should also pass legislation requiring every Illinois school to practice active safety drills. Quinn has pushed for an assault weapons ban since a deadly shooting at a Colorado movie theater last summer. He used his power of amendatory veto to rewrite a bill to ban assault weapons. Lawmakers rejected it.
