“The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to block an Illinois assault weapons [sic] ban, siding against gun-rights advocates and a gun store. The court did not explain its reasoning for denying the case. According to the Chicago Tribune, the Naperville City Council had approved a local ban on specific high-powered firearms after a shooting at a Fourth of July parade last year. The state of Illinois in January then passed a law [sic] banning the sale of specific semi-automatic guns.” (05/17/23)
