Village of Niles

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.

Niles, Illinois, Gun Range Saga Not Over?

Speaking of Cook County, there’s good and (possibly) bad news regarding that proposed gun range/shop in northwest suburban Niles, Illinois. While a Circuit Court of Cook County judge just dismissed that well-publicized lawsuit from the gun “control” crowd, more legal action appears forthcoming. Lee V. Gaines reported on the Chicago Tribune website on June 11:

Skokie-based gun control advocacy group plans to file an amended lawsuit against the village of Niles and the owner of a gun shop and range in what has been a nearly year-long attempt to prevent the facility from being built within one mile of five schools.

Circuit Court of Cook County Judge Franklin Ulyses Valderrama granted the village’s attorneys’ motion to dismiss the lawsuit at a hearing Thursday afternoon at the Richard J. Daley Center in Chicago.

But Valderrama dismissed the lawsuit without prejudice, meaning that the advocacy group, People for a Safer Society, has the opportunity to file an amended suit addressing several issues outlined in Valderrama’s written ruling, said the attorney for the group, Tony Hind…

Regular readers of Survival And Prosperity know that I’ve been following status of the proposed Sportsman’s Club and Firearms Training Academy (gun shop and range) at 6143 Howard Street for some time now. Here’s hoping for a favorable outcome on behalf of the Village of Niles and 6143 Howard Partners Inc.

Niles Gun Shop, Range Lawsuit Decision Pushed Back To June

The drawn-out saga that is the proposed Sportsman’s Club and Firearms Training Academy (gun shop and range) at 6143 Howard Street in northwest suburban Niles is set to continue for at least another month. Richard Ray of the Pioneer Press (Chicago suburbs) reported on May 14:

The court date for an anticipated ruling on whether or not a gun range can be built in the village of Niles has been pushed back to June, according to information from the clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County’s office.

This marks the second time Judge Franklin Ulyses Valderrama has motioned to take the case under advisement and push back the ruling, court records show…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Regular readers may recall I’ve been following the Niles gun shop/range story for almost a year now. I blogged last month that Judge Valderrama was originally scheduled to make a ruling on April 14, but pushed a decision back until May 14.

Here’s hoping the judge rules in favor of the Village of Niles and 6143 Howard Partners Inc/Sportsman’s Club and Firearms Training Academy in June.

Niles Gun Shop, Range Lawsuit Decision Next Month?

Chicago-area firearm enthusiasts- here’s the latest regarding that proposed gun shop and range at 6143 Howard Street in northwest suburban Niles. Igor Studenkov reported on the Chicago Tribune website on Monday:

The fate of a lawsuit a Skokie-based gun control advocacy group filed against the village of Niles will be decided next month.

People for a Safer Society filed a lawsuit against the village on Oct 17, 2014, over the Village Board’s decision to grant a special use permit to Sportsman’s Club gun shop and firing range. In its lawsuit, the group sought to not only annul the permit, but to prohibit the village from granting a permit for any gun shop that wants to open on that piece of land.

In response, the village’s attorneys filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit altogether.

Judge Franklin Ulyses Valderrama was originally scheduled to decide whether to grant the motion on April 14. But after listening to attorneys for both sides, he decided to take some time to consider it, and said he will issue a final decision May 14

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Regular readers may recall I’ve been following the Niles gun shop/range story since June of last year. Not surprisingly, the proposed facility encountered obstacles early on.

That being said, a concealed-carry training facility- Concealed Carry Safety for Personal Defense Inc– was able to open its doors last year in the near-northwest suburb.

Good luck to the Village of Niles and 6143 Howard Partners Inc/Sportsman’s Club and Firearms Training Academy in May.

Proposed Niles, Illinois, Gun Shop And Range Back In Court On April 14

Sorry about the delayed posting this week. While I would have liked to have celebrated an extended St. Patrick’s Day weekend here in the Chicago area (and wrote), a number of personal matters required my attention instead.

Speaking of the Chicagoland area, remember when I blogged last summer about that gun shop and range possibly opening up around my old stomping grounds on the Northwest Side? Last I heard, the proposed facility at 6143 Howard Street in Niles was being sued by a gun “control” group calling themselves People for a Safer Society. I noted on November 13:

As for the new gun shop/range? Alex Hernandez reported on The Bugle website on October 24:

People for a Safer Society are suing to block Sportsman’s Club and Firearms Training Academy from opening in Niles.

“The area immediately surrounding [Sportsman’s] is replete with schools, religious facilities, children’s recreations facilities, and other non-gun-related businesses and entities, many or all of which are within walking distance of the Howard Property and the proposed gun range,” said the suit filed by People for a Safer Society last Friday.

Back in July trustees voted 4-1 to grant Sportsman’s a special use permit to open an 1,800-square-foot firing range and 2,500 square feet of retail space at 6143 W. Howard St…

The suit claims that if Sportsman’s opens the business would endanger Niles by allowing “easy access for buying a gun for anyone in or near Niles and the surrounding villages and communities,” that Sportsman’s gun sales “would result in the feeding of crime guns to the City of Chicago,” and finally a fear that the store could increase the risk of suicides and mass shootings in the area…

That’s the last I heard of the Niles gun shop and shooting range- until this afternoon. Tom Robb reported on the website of Journal & Topics Newspapers (northwest Chicago suburbs) last week:

A significant ruling, in the case of anti-gun activists challenging Niles village trustees’ approval of a gun shop and shooting range, could come next month. It could end the case, send it to trial or add another party to the lawsuit.

At issue in a ruling, expected Tuesday, Apr. 14, is whether the challenge to the special use permit would be “facial” or “as applied.”

Robb explained later in the article:

In their motion to dismiss the suit, Niles attorneys wrote, “An applied challenge represents a plaintiff’s protest against how a statute was applied in a particular context… while a facial challenge represents a plaintiff’s contention that a statute is incapable of constitutional application in any context.”

Because the case could not withstand a facial challenge, village attorneys say in their motion that the case should be dismissed.

People For A Safer Society attorney Anthony Hind said he believes the standard in the gun shop case should rest on the “as applied” standard, based on long-standing state law, and that it should move forward…

There’s more to this legal stuff, which you can read over on the Des Plaines-based paper’s website here.

Survival And Prosperity wishes 6143 Howard Partners Inc. the best of luck on April 14.

Latest On Niles, Illinois, Pro-Gun Business Initiatives

Some Chicago-area readers of Survival And Prosperity might be curious about the status of the concealed-carry training facility and gun shop/range that were looking to move into the near-northwest suburb of Niles, Illinois. Well, the CCW school has opened its doors to the public. From the Northwest suburban Journal & Topics Newspapers website on November 4:

A school to train gun owners for concealed carry permits held a grand opening on Milwaukee Avenue in Niles.

Niles Village Trustee George Alpogianis, standing-in for Mayor Andrew Przybylo at the Oct. 17 event, cut the ribbon for Conceal Carry Safety for Personal Defense at 7609 N. Milwaukee.

The school uses fake guns with lasers for aiming, rather than actual firearms with live ammunition…

I understand the name of the school is actually Concealed Carry Safety for Personal Defense, and I blogged about the facility back in May after the Niles Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals recommended it be considered for a special use permit. At that time, I noted the CCW training school would be utilizing Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger (SIRT) Training Pistols as part of their curriculum:


“SIRT Training Pistol Introduction with Mike Hughes”

As for the new gun shop/range? Alex Hernandez reported on The Bugle website on October 24:

People for a Safer Society are suing to block Sportsman’s Club and Firearms Training Academy from opening in Niles.

“The area immediately surrounding [Sportsman’s] is replete with schools, religious facilities, children’s recreations facilities, and other non-gun-related businesses and entities, many or all of which are within walking distance of the Howard Property and the proposed gun range,” said the suit filed by People for a Safer Society last Friday.

As you can see, gun “control” is alive and well in Cook County, Illinois, these days. Nice to see another concealed-carry training option open up around my old stomping grounds though.

Final Vote Next Tuesday On Niles, Illinois, Gun Store And Range

Next Tuesday, July 22, the future of that proposed gun store and range in the northwest Chicago suburb of Niles will be decided on. From the Illinois State Rifle Association website yesterday:

URGENT ALERT – YOUR ACTION REQUIRED
BLOOMBERG MOMS SET TO RESUME ATTACK ON NILES ILLINOIS GUN SHOP AND RANGE

The Niles Village Council will soon take a final vote on whether to allow a gun shop and pistol range to open in the village. The application for the permit to open the range was voted on earlier this summer and approved by the Planning Board by a 6:1 vote.

However, gun control extremists led by the BLOOMBERG MOMS convinced the village council to force the Planning Board to take a second vote on the proposal. The objective of the BLOOMBERG MOMS was to have the gun shop and range SHUT DOWN IN COMMITTEE.

The second vote of the Planning Board on July 7th found in favor of the shop and range by a 5:2 margin. The BLOOMBERG MOMS browbeat a female board member into voting against gun rights.

THE BLOOMBERG MOMS WILL BE OUT IN FORCE THE NIGHT OF JULY 22ND

The supporters of the gun shop and pistol range desperately need your support to help push this proposal through the Village Board. Lawful gun owners cannot allow the BLOOMBERG MOMS to undermine lawful commerce in firearms or the operation of safe shooting facilities.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO STOP THE BLOOMBERG MOMS:

1. Attend the Niles Village Council meeting and enthusiastically defend your right to keep and bear arms.

2. Post this alert to any and all Internet bulletin boards or blogs to which you belong.

3. Pass this alert on to all your gun owning friends and relatives – tell them to go to Niles also.

WHAT: Niles Illinois Village Council Meeting

WHEN: Tuesday, 22 July 2014, 7 PM (be there at 6:15 to get a good seat)

WHERE: Niles Council Chambers, 1000 Civic Center Drive, Niles, IL

REMEMBER…ONLY YOU CAN SAVE GUN RIGHTS FROM DESTRUCTION BY THE MOMS.

Illinois State Rifle Association: ‘Bloomberg Moms’ Spanked On Niles Gun Store, Range Issue

Last Wednesday, I blogged about an upcoming meeting in the Chicago suburb of Niles regarding a proposed gun store and range there. The Illinois State Rifle Association warned on its website that a “Chicago-based extremist gun control group affiliated with the Bloomberg Moms” was trying to prevent the facility from opening up in town. The Village of Niles held a meeting about the matter on Monday. From the ISRA site earlier today:

SPECIAL ALERT – NILES ZONING COMMISSION UPSETS MOMS’ APPLE CART

The shrill voice of extremism echoed through the halls of the Niles Community Center on Monday night as the Bloomberg Moms tried without success to block a special use permit that would allow a pistol range and gun shop to open in an industrial area of the village.

In the end, the voice of reason prevailed with the zoning commission sending the application ahead to the full village council by a 5-2 vote.

Of the 250 or so people who packed the community center meeting room, about 75% appeared to be in favor of permitting the shop/range. What the Moms lacked in numbers they made up for with nonsense. It wasn’t good enough for the Moms to spout their familiar and tired repertoire of unsubstantiated claims against private firearms ownership. No, the Moms sunk to new depths – launching a campaign of lies and innuendo about the qualifications and character of the entrepreneurs seeking to open the shop/range facility.

On the other hand, supporters of the shop/range proposal testified with facts showing that the range and gun shop would be a great benefit to the community in terms of educational opportunities, jobs and tax revenues. Supporters of the proposal also debunked the Moms’ claim that the opening of the shop/range facility would endanger school children in the village…

Next up? A full Village Council vote on the facility.

You can read the entire ISRA announcement on their website.

Otherwise, stay tuned…

Thursday, July 10th, 2014 Firearms, Government, Gun Rights, Training Comments Off on Illinois State Rifle Association: ‘Bloomberg Moms’ Spanked On Niles Gun Store, Range Issue

Latest On Proposed Niles, Triton College Firearm Training Facilities

Last Wednesday I blogged about a proposed gun store and shooting range in the northwest Chicago suburb of Niles hitting a snag. Here’s the latest, courtesy of the Illinois State Rifle Association website on June 30:

URGENT ALERT – YOUR ACTION REQUIRED BLOOMBERG MOMS MAKE NILES, IL “GROUND ZERO” IN NATIONAL EFFORT TO CLOSE GUN SHOPS AND BAN RANGES

THE BIG ANTI-GUNNER LIE: “gun shops and ranges are dangerous launching points for armed attacks on schools, malls and the elderly.”

SITUATION: A team of entrepreneurs is attempting to construct and operate a gun shop and pistol range in Niles, Illinois. The purpose of the range and gun shop would be to better serve law-abiding firearm owners in the northwest suburbs. The shop and range proposal has already passed out of committee by a 6-1 vote. However, the proposal must be passed by the full village council in order for the range to open.

THREAT: A Chicago-based extremist gun control group affiliated with the Bloomberg Moms is attempting to block the construction and operation of the range and gun shop in Niles. Backed by $50 million in Bloomberg’s anti-gun war chest, the Moms are threatening political harm to local officials who support the proposed gun shop and range. This is part of a nationwide effort by the Moms to abolish private firearm ownership by shutting down all ranges and gun shops. If you care about freedom, you must help stop these radical gun-haters here and now.

ACTION REQUIRED: The Niles Village Board will be meeting soon to vote on whether or not the range will be allowed. It’s vitally important that you be there during the vote to show your support for the range. The Bloomberg Moms will certainly be there to attack the 2nd Amendment and demand that your gun rights be taken away from you. You need to be there, in Niles, to stand up and defend your rights along with the rights of millions of other Americans.

Date: Monday, July 7,2014 Time: 7:00 PM (be there by 6:15 to get a good seat) Location: Niles Village Hall, 1000 Civic Center Drive, Niles, IL 60714

PREPAREDNESS: The Bloomberg Moms are determined radicals who will go to great lengths to attack you and the 2nd Amendment. Be prepared vigorously defend your rights. Do not let these people get the upper hand in the meeting – actively challenge any attack on your right to keep and bear arms. There is no compromise. There is no common ground. It’s all or nothing in support of our Constitution!

Remember, only you can stop the antigunners. If you don’t stand up to them now, it may be all over. …

The “Bloomberg Moms.” Too funny.

And here’s something I caught on the Forest Park Review website from earlier this June that might interest local law enforcement and nearby residents seeking concealed-carry training. Jean Lotus reported:

Interest is growing among 23 Triton College feeder communities for a shared police training facility and shooting range hosted at the River Grove campus.

The community college recently sent a survey to police chiefs and village managers in 25 different towns asking about a possible shared facility, and almost all of them responded that they were open to discussing the possibility…

The current proposal is a “tactical training facility” located on the Triton campus with a state-of-the-art 24-position shooting range…

Training on judgment laser shooting and pursuit driving were just some of the requests made by survey respondents. Lotus added:

Sixty-four percent of the departments surveyed also asked for mock streetscape technology. Other suggestions were leadership training, firearms training from a vehicle, felony traffic stop scenarios, water-based courses, tactical room entry, building searches and rapid deployment training.

[Forest Park Mayor Anthony] Calderone pointed out Triton could even do concealed-carry training for civilians

Proposed Niles Gun Shop And Range Hits A Snag

While I was away from the blog, I heard a new gun shop and shooting range might be opening in the northwest Chicago suburb of Niles, near my old stomping grounds in the city.

But according to various news outlets today, the project has hit a snag.

From the WGN web site:

Village Board members were going to vote on the gun shop’s permit Tuesday night, but they sent the measure back to the zoning board for further discussion.

The zoning board will hold a hearing on July 7.

Reporter Tom Robb added over on the Journal & Topics Newspapers website:

Niles officials recently changed their zoning code to place gun related businesses in the industrial area of the village. Opponents say the proposed gun shop at 6143 Howard St. would provide easy access to guns and would be close to several schools, in some cases within blocks, recreational locations geared toward children, residential and educational centers for children with developmental disabilities and at least one bar…

“Opponents say the proposed gun shop at 6143 Howard St. would provide easy access to guns…”

I wonder what serves as the basis for “opponents” making that “easy access” claim?

Is it some perceived facility design flaw? Or do they think anyone can just waltz right into an Illinois gun shop, buy a firearm, and take it home with them the same day?

If so, they’ve obviously never bothered to educate themselves regarding the process for purchasing a gun from such a shop here in the “Land of Lincoln.”

You see, there’s this thing called a “waiting period.” Plus an FBI NICS background check that needs to be passed. Not to mention an initial background check performed by the Illinois State Police when the required Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card is applied for.

“Easy access?” I don’t think so.

Robb noted the issue could come back before Niles trustees in late July.

Stay tuned…
