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.

Kimberly Guilfoyle Reportedly Leaving Fox News. The Reason Why Will Make Trump Fans Cheer.

Published

on

A report that aired on CNN Friday announced that Kimberly Guilfoyle from Fox News would be leaving the news network in order to hit the campaign trail with Donald Trump Jr.

If this is true, it’s likely going to make a lot of Trump fans very happy. It’s being alleged that Guilfoyle will join Trump’s non-profit organization, America First Politics. There was no reference to when this might take place.

CNN reported that a “second source said that donors for the group had been actively trying to recruit” Guilfoyle.

The news was initially reported by Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman on Twitter.

Early Friday morning, Sherman wrote, “Per 3 sources briefed on matter, Don Jr’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle is leaving Fox News. More details TK.”

Andrew Surabian, a spokesperson for Trump Jr. tweeted celebratory remarks about the notion of Guilfoyle joining Trump Jr. on the campaign trail.

Surabian wrote, “Having @kimguilfoyle on the trail campaigning with @DonaldJTrumpJr for Republicans this fall is a win for the entire GOP. Kim is one of the most influential voices in the #MAGA movement and knows how to light up a crowd.”

Guilfoyle has yet to release any sort of official statement about the report, nor has she commented on Surabian’s tweet concerning the whole situation, thus it seems there might be some truth to this after all.

However, we’ll have to wait for her official statement to know whether or not the rumors are true.

Fox would be losing a great anchor in Guilfoyle, but the campaign trail could use a little of her influence.

Mark Zuckerberg Did Something For Trump After Election Victory That Will Make Liberals Abandon Facebook

Published

on

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, is causing liberal heads to explode all over the country today as news has surfaced of a secret congratulatory phone call made to Donald Trump after he trounced Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Zuckerberg apparently made the call on the “down low’ a few days after the election, where he heaped praise on Trump and his team for its successful application of the Facebook platform to his campaign.

If you listen closely, you can hear the cries and screams of progressives echoing across the land.

Facebook has acknowledged in internal memos and presentations how successful Trump was at leveraging the social network to reach voters.

Facebook even used the then-Republican candidate’s strategy to hone a model — called “Test, Learn, Adapt” — to evaluate its own advertising, according to the report.

The Trump campaign spent $44 million testing 5.9 million versions of ads from June to November 2016,according to an internally-circulated white paper obtained by Bloomberg.
Clinton, in comparison, spent just $28 million testing 66,000 different ads during the same period.

The paper suggested that the Trump campaign’s Facebook strategy was “more complex than Clinton’s and better leveraged Facebook’s ability to optimize for outcomes.”

But Facebook has been reticent to publicly praise the Trump campaign’s use of its platform, irking some former campaign members who believe they deserve more credit.

Now, those of us who believe in freedom of speech don’t see a problem at all with Zuckerberg congratulating Trump. That’s the right thing to do, after all.

What’s hilarious and somewhat ridiculous about this situation is that he’s worked so hard to silence the voices of conservatives in order to appease the banshees on the left who have demanded the right be punished for using this platform to present their beliefs.

VIDEO: Maxine Waters’ Supporters Show Up At Her Office And Do Something Horrific To The Flag

Published

on

Folks who support Rep. Maxine Waters recently showed up to her office where they stood out front and burned the American flag and shouted “black power” all afternoon.

This is the kind of crowd this lady attracts, and yet, for whatever reason, she thinks Trump and his fanbase are the sick and twisted deplorables? Pretty sure disrespecting the flag in such an egregious manner, which in turn is like spitting on the men and women who have died defending it, is pretty awful in and of itself.

The Daily Mail reports:

A modest few dozen people made their rebellious appearance despite a previous request by the congresswoman that supporters not be baited into confrontation with the Oath Keepers.

Disturbing photographs and video emerged after the event that showed her supporters cheering as they burned an American flag and stomped on it while it was on the ground.

The Mail reports that Waters’ supporters chanted: “This is not the American flag, this is their flag.” They also chanted “black power” and “resist!”

Waters has been engulfed in controversy in recent weeks as she called for attacks against members of the Trump administration after several of them were harassed in public, saying, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Leftists are growing more and more violent, angry, and agitated, ditching civilized dialogue for riots and terrorism, hoping to force folks to accept their political agenda instead of presenting clear and well articulated ideas and winning hearts and minds.

It’s a sad time for America when folks can’t disagree with one another politically without wishing each other harm. Here’s to hoping we rediscover our humanity some day before things go too far.
