GOF Wins Injunction Against Illinois "Assault Weapons" Ban

Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) and Gun Owners of America (GOA) recently won a significant victory in court against the state of Illinois. On April 28, 2023, a federal judge blocked Illinois' so-called “assault weapons ban,” declaring it unconstitutional. GOF and GOA, along with several other pro-gun groups, filed the lawsuit against the state, arguing that the ban violated the Second Amendment rights of gun owners.
