DEERFIELD, Ill. — Members of the village board in the northern Chicago suburb of Deerfield have voted unanimously to ban certain semi-automatic firearms.
The amendment to the village’s gun ordinance restricts firearms that village leaders define as assault weapons along with high-capacity magazines. That includes the AR-15, which has been used in mass shootings.
The new law goes into effect June 13. Residents who don’t remove banned weapons by then face a fine of $1,000 a day.
DENVER — No bump stocks have been turned over to Denver authorities after the city banned the accessories used in last year’s mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people and injured hundreds.
Denver Police police last month invited city residents to turn in any bump stocks in their possession but Denverite reports that none have been handed over.
