Northbrook Bars Employees, Contractors from Carrying Guns on Job

The Illinois State Rifle Association has a lawyer looking into the recently-enacted rule.

Northbrook employees and contractors are not allowed to carry a gun or other weapon while on village property or private property when they’re working, according to an article in the Northbrook Star.

The rule was enacted last week by the village’s Public Safety Committee. It has already draw both praise and ire, including from the executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, who said the group is having a lawyer look into the rule before planning next steps, according to the Northbrook Star.

What do you think, should the village forbid employees and contractors from carrying weapons while working?

When a Conceal Carry License holder is forced to use his Concealed Handgun to defend his life... it won't matter where he does it, he will still be alive. No law in the United States may violate your Right to Life and your Right to defend it. Arrest him and charge him $75.00 for the violation... I'm sure his life is worth it to him / her. Now, if said contractor were to disarm and comply with the Northbrook Rule and end up killed... the lawsuit would be in the Millions$$$. What is Northbrook doing to insure that insane people are not calling contractors to their home and while their in the basement all alone...Hmmm We do nothing to control the Mentally Ill in Illinois, but do everything to make sure one of their victims is defenseless!
