Today the Village of Morton Grove also moved to avoid protracted legal action by amending its Village Code to remove the current handgun ban and incorporate sections of the Illinois Criminal Code, following the filing of NRA's lawsuit against the city.
"We are pleased that the Village of Morton Grove took steps to repeal its draconian gun ban," said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox. "Finally Village residents can exercise the same constitutionally-protected rights that the rest of the country enjoys."
Final action by the Village of Morton Grove Board on this ordinance is expected at the July 28 meeting. The NRA is committed to restoring the individual Second Amendment rights to all law-abiding Americans, as recently recognized by the United States Supreme Court in Heller v. District of Columbia.
