Illinois and the city of Naperville are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reject an injunction on their gun bans. Both parties believe their bans should remain in effect while legal challenges are decided. The request was sent to Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett. Naperville approved a local ban on the sale of certain high-powered firearms, while state lawmakers passed a ban on assault weapons. The owner of a Naperville gun shop filed a lawsuit challenging both local and state restrictions.
