Highland Park, IL “Assault Weapon” and Magazine Ban Lawsuit

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is suing the city of Highland Park, IL to overturn their so called “assault weapon” and magazine ban. We have amended our complaint to incorporate the state “assault weapon” ban as well. With the decision handed down in Bruen, laws like this one will now need to find their justification in the history, text, and tradition of the Second Amendment. These laws ban firearms that are in common use throughout the United States in violation of the rule set forth in Heller. Highland Park is in the 7th Circuit of the US Court of Appeals. A victory here will establish good legal precedent throughout the entire circuit, including Wisconsin and Indiana.
