Governor talks anti-violence at Chicago churches

Gov. Pat Quinn spent his second consecutive Sunday at Chicago houses of worship calling for more anti-violence efforts on city streets and the need for an assault weapons ban _ pointing specifically to the recent shooting death of a 6-month-old girl.

The Chicago Democrat stopped at two churches and a Chicago synagogue to help launch an anti-gun violence campaign with religious and community leaders. Quinn, who likely faces a tough re-election next year, also used the chance to tout his budget proposal, playing up how he's retained money for early education.
