Latest On Proposed Niles, Illinois, Gun Shop, Range

Regular Chicagoland readers of this blog know I’ve been following the proposed gun range/shop in northwest suburban Niles, Illinois, pretty much since the beginning. From what I gather, the facility is still bogged down in the legal system (go figure). Lee V. Gaines reported on the Chicago Tribune website yesterday:

An amended lawsuit against the village of Niles and the company that plans to open up a gun shop and range in the village was filed Monday, July 27, by a Skokie-based gun control advocacy group that aims to prevent the facility from locating within five miles of several schools.

The initial lawsuit, filed last October by the advocacy group People for a Safer Society, sought to annul a special-use permit approved last July by the Niles Village Board that would allow for the sale of firearms, an indoor firing range and gun safety training at a yet to be built facility at 6143 Howard St., in addition to preventing any such facility from opening up shop on that parcel of land in the future.

The group’s lawsuit, as previously reported by Pioneer Press, was dismissed without prejudice in June by Circuit Court of Cook County Judge Franklin Ulyses Valderrama.

To address the concerns outlined by Valderrama in his June ruling on the matter, Tony Hind, an attorney for the group, said the amended suit names the 6143 Howard Partners, the company that plans to open the gun shop and range dubbed Sportsman’s Club and Firearms Training, as a defendant alongside the village of Niles.

Hind said the new suit also lays out specific alleged damages that would result from the existence of such a facility in addition to outlining the harm the gun shop and range would pose to the general public…

As I’ve said in previous posts on the matter, here’s hoping for a favorable outcome on behalf of the Village of Niles and 6143 Howard Partners Inc.
