The Archbishop of Chicago -- the leading Catholic official in Illinois -- is becoming a prominent spokesman among American bishops for stricter gun laws. In this wide-ranging interview with WGLT's Judy Valente, Blase Cupich talks about recent street violence in Chicago as well the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, and how people of faith should respond.

 

Blase Cupich was named by Pope Francis as Chicago Archbishop in September 2014. Cupich is considered a leading U.S. spokesman of the pope's pastoral priorities.
