GREAT NEWS: Judge Just Handed Major Victory to Pro-Gun Groups in Illinois

Excellent!

Published

on

An Illinois circuit judge has issued a temporary restraining order on Tuesday that will prevent a city in the state from enforcing a new ordinance that would force residents to turn in guns deemed to be “assault weapons,” which, if you look closely at their definition of terms, could basically be kind of gun that looks scary.

The Village of Deerfield passed the ordinance on April 2 of this year, effectively making it illegal to own “assault weapons” along with “high capacity” magazines. Again, what constitutes a “high capacity magazine?” The definitions from the left are quite arbitrary.

The ordinance in question demanded the residents of Deerfield to remove their weapons from the city or turn them for confiscation or modification. Anyone who refused to do so would be fined $1,000 a day.

A number of gun rights organizations, including the National Rifle Association and Guns Save Lives, filed suit to prevent enforcement of the ordinance, arguing that Deerfield exceeded its authority under Illinois state law and the United States Constitution in implementing the ban. Also, a separate lawsuit was filed against the city by resident Daniel Easterday with the backing of the Second Amendment Foundation, according to the Tribune.

In 2013, Illinois passed the Firearm Concealed Carry Act, which made gun regulation the exclusive province of the state government and forbade all municipalities from implementing any new gun regulations; however, the law provided a 10-day window after it took effect for cities to enact an assault weapons ban, if they wanted to do so.

Deerfield did not avail themselves of the opportunity to do so at the time, but the city’s attorneys argued in court that the April 2 ordinance was an amendment to a prior Deerfield ordinance that was passed within the timeframe.

For now, the city will not be able to enforce the ordinance, at least until the court can hear the legal arguments on the merits. According to WBBM-TV, the city has promised to abide by the restraining order and not enforce the ordinance during the pendency of the lawsuit.

But a city spokesman stated, “We are certainly going to review all of the options, including the right to appeal the decision to the Illinois Appellate Court.”

The biggest issue with laws about “assault rifles” always comes down to the definition of the term. You’ll never find such dangerous, glaring ignorance than when you ask a liberal to define what constitutes an assault weapon.

Most of them believe an assault rifle is an automatic weapon, which is closer to the actual definition of the term. However, the problem is, the kind of rifles they are targeting, primarily AR-15s, are not automatic, they are semi-automatic, which means one squeeze of the trigger per round fired. In other words, by their definition, anything that fires a bullet is an assault weapon.

Secondly, the Second Amendment allows us the freedom to own a wide variety of firearms as a means of protecting us from tyrants and dangerous criminals who likely possess the same kind of firepower.

If only liberals studied the Constitution, they would know this stuff and stop making fools of themselves.

POTUS and George Conway Trade NASTY Narratives Online

Conway’s insinuation of Trump’s mental condition set the President off.

George Conway

After President Trump’s extended Tweet storm this past weekend, it comes as no surprise that there would be some residual precipitation throughout the week. The Commander in Chief, who is an avid and proficient Twitter user, has been using the platform to circumvent the mainstream media as of late.  The reason being is simple; the MSM is slanted and biased in ways that our nation would never have imagined possible. Of course, due to the freedom of the internet, (or what’s left of it anyway), there are plenty of characters who spend their days attempting to garner the attention of the President via the Twitter platform.  Often these short and biting pieces of drivel sail right past ol’ 45. Not today, however. Kellyanne Conway’s husband George is ‘a total loser,’ Preisdent Donald Trump claimed on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the Washington lawyer blasted him on Twitter as mentally ill. And the president’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, claimed ‘Mr. Kellyanne Conway’ is ‘jealous’ of his more-famous wife’s success after being bounced from a low-prestige job at the U.S. Department of Justice. ‘He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success. POTUS doesn’t even know him!’ Parscale tweeted Monday night. George Conway and President Trump have feuded quite publicly in the past as well, but this latest spat seems to have arrived with a newfound intensity, thanks in no small part to the President’s increasingly combative behavior. But can we really blame Trump for this shift in attitude?  Given what passes for “news” these days, we’re not so sure.

O’Rourke Accused of Wrongly Appropriating “Beto” by Latino Journalist

Looks like “Beto” may have to go back to “Robert Francis” for the time being…

Beto O'Rourke

The mainstream media has been tiptoeing around Robert Francis O’Rourke’s name for some time now, but it seems that the jig is up. “Beto” is what O’Rourke refers to himself as, and there is an extremely specific reason why.  As a politician living in El Paso, Texas, the Latino demographic is of the utmost importance for the democratic presidential candidate. “Beto” is a Mexican nickname, short for “Roberto” and O’Rourke has certainly used this to his advantage in politics. Now, a prominent Latino journalist is bashing “Beto” for the appropriation of the nickname, comparing the move to “stolen valor”. In fact, in a USA Today column, Ruben Navarrette said that the “Beto backlash” among Latinos reminds him “of the idea of stolen valor, the righteous outrage felt by combat veterans when others who didn’t see action claim medals they don’t deserve.” Navarrette said that numerous Latinos “— unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto” because O’Rourke has not been with the community when it mattered on issues like immigration. Navarrette continued… “For instance, at a time when Latinos feel under siege by ethnocentrism and anti-immigrant demagoguery, where was O’Rourke on the explosive immigration issue during his three terms in the House of Representatives?” Navarrette asked. And this wasn’t the first time that the journalist went after Robert Francis O’Rourke, either. In a previous column last month addressing “cultural appropriation,” Navarrette noted that though O’Rourke, whom he dubbed “the Hamlet of West Texas,” has likely “never gone out and told a group of Mexican-Americans that he was a member of the tribe,” it seems like “he doesn’t mind if some Latinos jump to that conclusion and vote for him because of some misplaced sense of ethnic…
