Winnetka repeals handgun ban

WINNETKA, Ill. The Winnetka Village Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to end its ban on gun possession.

The action comes after a Supreme Court decision that calls handgun bans a violation of the 2nd Amendment.

The Winnetka council will still regulate firearm use.

The ban was established after Laurie Dann shot and killed a child and wounded five others at the Hubbard Woods Elementary School in 1988.
