Signs banning guns have appeared on Evanston city buildings over the past few days as city officials comply with the new state concealed-carry law.

The law, 430 ILCS 66/65, bans guns from a wide array of public buildings — from government offices to schools — but also requires that the building owners post signs announcing the ban.

On another gun issue, Evanston City Attorney Grant Farrar today said he hasn't had time to review a federal judge's decision Monday that ruled the City of Chicago's ban on gun stores unconstitutional.

Evanston's city code has a similar ban on gun dealers.
