Re-elect Governor Pat Quinn
Governor Pat Quinn has a long and impressive record of support for common sense gun safety. He scored 100% on the G-PAC Candidate Questionnaire, and has signed historic lifesaving legislation into law, including requiring universal background checks and mandatory reporting of lost/stolen guns to prevent illegal trafficking. In addition, he has led the charge for a statewide ban on semi-automatic, military-style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines.
His opponent, Bruce Rauner, avoided responding to the G-PAC Candidate Questionnaire, does not support common sense gun safety legislation and has come under fire among leading gun violence prevention leaders for “out of touch” statements he has made in opposition to legislation banning semi-automatic, military-style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines. When asked when it would be appropriate to use an assault weapon, Rauner stated, “It would be up to the owner. I do think it’s target practice for use…as they choose fit.”
This is truly a life vs. death decision that could steer the course of public safety in our communities for the years ahead. Cast your ballot and spread the word. If you have a spare hour or two, give it to Governor Quinn.
