Naperville, IL “Assault Weapon” Sale Ban

The National Foundation for Gun Rights is suing the city of Naperville, IL for an “assault weapon” sale ban. We have amended our complaint to incorporate the state “assault weapon” ban as well. Our plaintiff, Robert Bevis, is a local gun store owner who stepped up to challenge this unconstitutional ban by speaking with his city council to try and stop this terrible law. 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.
