Another one bites the dust

    The Evanston City Council voted 7-1 Monday night to repeal a handgun ban in the city.

    Previously, an ordinance on the books banned handguns in the town.

    The move comes in response to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that overturned a similar handgun ban, saying it was unconstitutional.

    Both Morton Grove and Wilmette overturned their handgun bans following the high court's ruling.

That leaves Oak Park and Chicago with handgun bans here in the once great state of Illinois.
