Vote "No" to New Public Gun Range

The Village board is about to approve a major change to current zoning law to allow for a New 16-Lane Public Gun Range and Store in Lincolnwood. This change downgrades existing law from a ½ mile buffer zone around schools and parks to 800 feet!

This affects School District 74 and the Parks & Recreation facilities in many locations; including Todd Hall (PreK-2nd), Rutledge Hall (3rd- 5th), and Lincoln Hall (6th-8th), several parks and the new bike path. (see image)

This is a major change to existing law with little or no input from the village residents and community.

Current Law: No gun shops within 1/2 mile of school, park, or residence
Proposed Law:
Reduces this distance down to 800 ft.
