                 Statement from Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich

                 On the Supreme Court Ruling on Gun-Control Law
CHICAGO – “I want express my extreme disappointment with the decision issued today by the
Supreme Court. Every day, around the country, too many lives are lost to senseless gun violence.
The Courts decision today will only add to the pain that parents, classmates and communities are
forced to endure. It will also put more police officers at risk. I am an advocate for common sense
gun laws. Gun laws that save lives, protect communities and offer greater safety protections for
police officers. I look forward to working the Illinois General Assembly to provide additional
protections for Illinois communities.”
