“They know [an assault weapons ban is] not going to reduce any crime or stop one person from getting a gun or stop anyone from coming into Naperville to commit a crime,” [Law Weapons and Supply owner Robert Bevis] said. “Criminals don’t buy guns from shops like ours.
“It is absolutely political theater.”
But last month, [Naperville, Illinois] Councilman Ian Holzhauer said it was his duty to act on an ordinance like this.
“As an elected official, I can do something,” he said. “It might be something small, but I can do something to help keep our community safe and stand for our community values.”
