â€œWithout legal authority and in violation of the Constitution, my client, a federally licensed firearms dealer, was delayed by the village when he initially applied for a weapons dealers business license in Norridge,â€ Maksym said.
â€œWhen village officials realized they couldnâ€™t stop him from obtaining a gun dealerâ€™s license, they arbitrarily imposed more restrictions on him without any legal basis.â€
After failing to keep Kole from opening, Maksym said, his client was restricted by the village from advertising.
That should be a slam dunk in court. It might be permissible for a local governmental entity to regulate advertising generally, but it do it on the basis of content has no basis. I just hope his attorney is decent. They should not be able to condition the exercise of one constitutional right on the surrendering of another.
