Governor uses veto power to turn pro-gun bill into “assault weapon” ban
State Senator Gary Forby was shocked to learn that Governor Pat Quinn of Chicago is trying to turn a non-controversial pro-gun, pro-business bill into a ban on owning certain types of guns.
“I don’t understand Governor Quinn’s continued assault on Southern Illinois values and Illinois businesses,” Forby said. “This is all one state. Maybe he should try coming south of I-80 a little bit more often.”
