Champaign, Illinois, Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen (D) has issued an executive order amid coronavirus fears that gives her the power to stop gun and ammunition sales in the city.

The City of Champaign announced the order, signed into effect on Thursday, which "allows the Mayor to exercise significant emergency powers at the inception of the emergency, and then to provide an opportunity for the City Council, as a whole, to deal with an emergency."

WAND17 says some of those powers available include the ban of ammunition and gun sales, as well as alcohol.
