With a bill regulating the concealed possession of firearms in Illinois awaiting Gov. Pat Quinn's signature, Island Lake officials last week discussed whether a local ban on assault weapons is needed. No decision was made following a presentation by one of the village's attorneys. Several suburban boards have discussed the issue recently because the state bill, if signed by Quinn, prohibits communities from adopting bans after 10 days.
