SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (IRN) – Gov. Pat Quinn says mandatory minimum sentences on gun crimes aren’t the only solution to gun violence in Illinois.

Quinn favors a more comprehensive approach that also addresses high capacity gun magazines.

“Those weapons were used in Newtown, Conn. to kill children, and they were used on the parks of Chicago to shoot at children,” Quinn said.

A bill sponsored by State Rep. Mike Zalewski (D-Riverside) would impose stricter sentences for aggravated use of a weapon and gun crimes committed by felons.

Similar legislation died in a House committee in the spring, but Zalewski believes there’s enough support to pass it during the veto session.
