Conductor shot in Naperville calls for change in gun laws: 'Fix this broken system'

 

 

The Amtrak conductor who was shot by a passenger at a Naperville train station said he believes sensible gun control could have prevented the violence that left him with serious injuries.

 

Amtrak conductor Michael Case said changes should be made to keep mentally unstable individuals from owning and having access to guns, though he stressed he does not want to infringe on Second Amendment rights.

 

SNIP

 

 

On Dec. 18, Case testified before a DuPage County judge, recounting the moment Klein, of West Allis, Wis., shot the Amtrak conductor in the torso.

 

"I was in shock," Case told the judge, with Klein not far away. In a separate interview that week, Case described being in the same room as Klein. "I had a lot of nervousness, I didn't sleep well the night before," he said. "But when I woke up, I knew I was ready to rock and roll, to put this behind me…I had no problem facing Mr. Klein. I was ready to tell the story as I remembered."
