Gun sales look likely in Grayslake

GRAYSLAKE – The village may permit sales of guns and ammunition in certain business districts.

On Tuesday, the village board generally agreed to allow such sales in the general business and shopping center zones, but not the central business district. Trustees wanted to have such businesses go through the special-use permitting process, which takes more time.

"This topic can be controversial," Mayor Rhett Taylor said. "It can touch nerves. We want to put oversight on this."

He noted that the planning and zoning panel recommended allowing such sales.

"The village can't prohibit the sale of products that are legal in the state and the U.S." the mayor said.

The rules would bar sales in homes.

The village is expected to vote on the issue at a later meeting.
