God bless Lake County Courts; hopefully this ends up @ the SCOTUS in under 4 years. How long did it take from inception to SCOTUS with McDonald? The info I find online looks like 2 years but I know it must have been longer

If its state I'm gonna have problems pulling briefs. There's no uniform system for that like with the federal district and circuit courts. I bet I can figure out how, will just take some time.

Is that the same Dr. Friedman that ran for the Senate a couple years ago?

Good to see this, but they should really proof read it before they file it... There are three different dates, when does this take effect? 2013, 2014 or 2103?

Point #4 under "STANDING" says "Plaintiff must take certain actions by December 14, 2014"
Point #9 under "THE ORDINANCE" says "Effective December 14, 2103
Point #10 under "THE ORDINANCE" says "Failure to take any of the above actions by December 14, 2013"

Judge Berrones! heck yeah.

Stung by the result of McDonald v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 3020 (2010), the City quickly enacted an ordinance that was too clever by half. Recognizing that a complete gun ban would no longer survive Supreme Court review, the City required all gun owners to obtain training that included one hour of live‐range instruction, and then banned all live ranges within City limits. This was not so much a nod to the importance of live‐range training as it was a thumbing of the municipal nose at the Supreme Court.

What's the background on Berrones? Curious why that is good for us.

Berrones is a very good judge. By the book. Rule follower. He's not going to tolerate the shenanigans we typically see from the government on these cases. Can't say that he's pro or anti, just that he's good. Got a favorable decision from him this morning in fact on a totally unrelated matter.

Sounds like the kind of judge we want. Doesn't mean we'll always get what we want (Posner scolding us on process), but following the proper processes is good.

Glad to see this! if any funding is needed to help the lawsuit along please let us know, if this lawsuit goes well it could be another Heller or McDonald in regards to 2a rights.

The Highland Park City Council has a special meeting tomorrow at 7:45am. The agenda is blank, possibly indicating that it will all be closed session.

False alarm - the agenda is blank but there is an agenda packet listing typical city stuff. Obviously they can talk about anything they want but it wasn't called specifically to discuss this matter.
