Another lawsuit is challenging Illinois’ assault weapons ban. Former Republican Illinois attorney general candidate Tom DeVore filed a suit in downstate White County. The plaintiffs include former Republican candidate for Illinois governor and previous state senator Darren Bailey. DeVore already filed a lawsuit challenging the gun ban in Effingham County, where a judge last week temporarily blocked the enforcement of the measure on more than 850 defendants in the case.
