Another Illinois City Drops Gun Ban

Sebastian says they are dropping like dominoes. What and why?

Morton Grove, Ill. has become the second city (no pun intended), after Willmette, to halt enforcement of its gun ban after the Heller opinion was released and pro-self-defense advocates filed suit against the City of Chicago over its ban on the possession of self defense firearms by residents living in public housing facilities.

Playing the waiting game, or fear? My take is that city officials realize the American public is tiring of the nanny-state mindset. And, as Sebastian notes, it could be they don't have the deep pockets of Mayor Daley and the Chicago Machine.

Either way, the potential for safer streets and homes has spiked in Willmette and Morton Grove in just 48 hours.
