Quinn was asked Tuesday on Fox 5 “Good Day New York” about remarks by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Christie said MondayChristie asks, “Can we at least get through the initial grief and tragedy for these families before we start making them political pawns. Can we take a deep breath before the politicians start sending out press releases? Can we allow the people to be mourned appropriately by their families before you have opportunistic politicians out there trying to make political points in an election year?”

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other politicians in New York and New Jersey have renewed calls for tighter gun control. Bloomberg during an interview with Piers Morgan on his CNN show called for police to go on strike until legislators take action on gun control laws.

Quinn asked: “What is the political agenda about keeping people alive?”

Quinn also mentioned the fatal playground shooting of a 4-year-old Bronx boy on Sunday.

She added: “I just don’t understand the governor’s statement at all.”

She’s a potential mayoral candidate in 2013.
