Last Day for Illinois Communities to Restrict Certain Firearms


A dozen Illinois communities have moved to toughen their local gun laws while they still can… and a dozen more could take such a vote today, the last day they can do so under the limits set up in the state’s new concealed carry law.

 

The Chicago Tribune reports that while some of the communities, mostly Chicago suburbs, have voted to ban assault weapons, others are simply imposing new restrictions on where and how they can be carried.

 

Meanwhile, the Illinois State Rifle Association says 30 other Illinois communities have considered, but rejected, new limits ahead of today’s deadline.
