#1 Doc, Quinn may be a Chicago pol, but he has no clout. He is being challenged in the Dem primary so far by Bill Daley, who has raised a ton of money, and likely Lisa Madigan. Gun control is his windmill to tilt at. Stick a fork in him, he's done.

#2 Quinn has all the political cover he would need to just sign this and move on. That's not the issue. Quinn's problem is that once he signs gun crime will go down, and that is something the Dems can't allow.
