Naperville Gun Shop Owner Asks U.S. Supreme Court To Block Assault Weapons Ban

A gun store owner in suburban Chicago is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to put both a local and state assault weapons ban on hold until a decision in federal court is made.  The request was filed yesterday by Robert Bevis, the owner of Law Weapons & Supply in Naperville.  A previous request by Bevis to block the state’s assault weapons ban was denied by a federal appeals court in Chicago.  Bevis is part of lawsuits challenging Naperville’s ordinance and Illinois‘ law, which bans the sale of military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines in the state.
