Gun ban signs go up on city buildings


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.
