Waukegan says NO to “assault weapons” ban 7/15/2013


As I reported HERE on 6/17/2013, Waukegan Mayor Wayne Motley sent the proposed Sheila Simon template “assault weapons” ban back to the Public Safety Committee.  During the interim, the committee received many emails and met in person with several concerned citizens.  Based on the input from the public, the committee decided to recommend AGAINST passing the ordinance.  Tonight, all aldermen (alderpersons if you prefer) except one voted AGAINST the proposed ordinance.

Subsequent to the announcement and council vote, some of us who signed up to make public statements passed on their opportunity.  Of those who did make comments, seven were pro-gun and thanked the committee and council for their decision.  Except for one alderman of a particularly tough, high crime ward, there were no anti-gun speakers. 

While I will never award high marks to Mayor Wayne Motley as a crusader for the Second Amendment, he was top notch in stewarding this contentious issue through the machinations of local government.  The system worked, as it should, thanks in large part to his fairness.
