Gun ban in Wilmette repealed

Handguns are once again legal in north suburban Wilmette. The village repealed the nearly 20-year-old ban since the U.S. Supreme Court declared a similar one unconstitutional.

Chicago, Evanston, Morton Grove and Oak Park have all had suits filed against them to have their handgun ordinances overturned.

Wilmette officials say they'll look into other possible regulations for gun ownership in their town.
