Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner says the state should be able to execute persons convicted of killing police officers or committing mass shootings. He made that proposal among several measures Monday in an amendatory veto message of legislation aimed at reducing gun violence.

The bill, HB1468, would have required anyone buying so-called assault-style weapons to wait 72 hours before picking up their purchase from a gun dealer.
