Wilmette repeals its handgun ban, Morton Grove to do the same this week

The Chicago Tribune reported this on Friday:

Wilmette may be the first, but it's unlikely to be the last Chicago suburb to repeal its handgun ban in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark decision last month to declare a similar measure unconstitutional.

Morton Grove, which approved the nation's first handgun ban in 1981, is set to repeal its anti-gun ordinance next week after the high court's June 26 ruling that the 2nd Amendment guarantees a person's right to possess a handgun in one's home for self-defense.

The National Rifle Association filed lawsuits against Morton Grove, Evanston, Oak Park and Chicago immediately after the high court's ruling, seeking repeal of the decades-old gun-ban ordinances.. . . .

Interesting, it might not be too long before I could actually consider moving to Illinois. I won't hold my breath though, Indiana is much better for gun owners, even though I live in the Northwest corner, near Chicago.
