Blagojevich ads make gun control a major focus of Ilinois gubernatorial campaign
The governor attacked Judy Baar Topinka's opposition to a ban on more assault weapons on two fronts Thursday, with new TV ads and a news conference in downtown Chicago with gun control activists who lost family members to gun violence.
"Mrs. Topinka's position on this is a hazard to public safety," said Steve Young, gun control activist.
"The people that are trying to shout this legislation down are far more interested in buying and selling guns than they are in taking care of us. We're the ones that are left to clean up their mess," said Bill Jenkins, gun control activist.
