Members of the village board in the northern Chicago suburb of Deerfield have voted unanimously to ban certain semi-automatic firearms.
WLS-TV in Chicago reports 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.
The ordinance is based on Highland Park's high-powered weapons ban, which survived a 2015 legal battle that went to the U.S. Supreme Court.
