Illinois: Village of Morton Grove Considering Amending Handgun Ban!

Friday, July 11, 2008

In response to the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down the Washington, D.C. ban on handguns, the Village of Morton Grove is considering amending its own ban on handguns. 

The Village has banned the possession of handguns since 1981, but according to its website, “Mayor Richard Krier has directed Corporation Counsel Teresa Hoffman Liston to prepare an ordinance for Village Board consideration amending the Village’s Municipal Code, Section 6-2-3 so it is compliant with the Supreme Court decision.” 

The ordinance is scheduled to be on the Village Board’s agenda on Monday, July 14.  This meeting will start at 7:30 PM, and will be held in the Richard T. Flickinger Municipal Center, 6101 Capulina Avenue, Morton Grove.
