    The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from gun owners who challenged a Chicago suburb's ban on assault weapons.

    The justices on Monday refused to hear the case of a Highland Park, Illinois, pediatrician who objected to the city's 2013 ban on semi-automatic weapons and large-capacity magazines.
