Highland Park has banned assault weapons.

The Highland Park City Council enacted the ban Monday night after nearly two hours of public comments in a standing-room only chamber. One councilman, David Naftzger, voted against the ban. He said it could cost Highland Park thousands of dollars in litigation. Councilman Paul Frank voted for the ban, telling The News-Sun he's "proud we will not permit assault weapons."

Illinois Rifle Association second vice president Mike Weisman promised a lawsuit, saying one would "be filed without a doubt."
