CHICAGO (CBS) — Gov. Pat Quinn was on the West Side on Monday, talking about the wave of shootings in Chicago over the 4th of July holiday weekend, and the need for more gun laws.
WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the governor said the shootings – with victims ranging from a 5-year-old watching fireworks to an elderly woman on her porch – are unacceptable.
“No one – no one – should be shot in our state of Illinois. We want to make sure that we enact laws that protect the people,” he said.
