Governor Looking at Adjusting State's Gun Policies

SHARE Governor Looking at Adjusting State's Gun Policies

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich says he’ll look to adjust state gun control policies in response to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Thursday the court struck down Washington D.C.’s gun ban. Blagojevich says he disagrees with the opinion.

BLAGOJEVICH: Whether you’re the Governor, me, or Mayor Daley, it’s a big blow to those of us who believe in common sense gun laws. As a result, it’s the wrong decision.

The ruling calls into question a similar ban the city of Chicago established in 1982. Chicago Mayor Richard Daley says the city will fight any legal challenges to its own ban.
