Tantalizing Excerpt:

“The Law Department and the Police Department have suspended enforcement of the ordinance pending further review by the Village Board,” Wilmette village attorney Tim Frenzer said Thursday. “Based on the decision today, at a minimum it calls into serious question the continued viability of the ordinance.”

Frenzer said questions remain about how directly the court’s decision will impact local gun laws in Wilmette and other parts of the country. Washington is not a state, and each state has its own legal language governing the right to bear arms.

    We have a long road to go to get back to where we were just fifty years ago.
