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.

Obama Remarks on GOP Voting Law Gets Fierce Rebuke

The former President was simply WRONG, and he got called out for it.

Published

on

Of all the large narratives still churning in the political ether these days, the fight for electoral security continues to produce some of the most heated narratives that we’ve seen.

Republican lawmakers around the nation have been working to tighten voting regulations across the board after the security of the 2020 election became a hot topic of conversation.   They claim that voter fraud is an issue that could affect any and all elections for years to come, and their hope it to get out ahead of that.

The Democrats, however, have suggested that this electoral integrity stance is merely a ploy to disenfranchise voters in predominately Democratic districts, alleging that voter fraud is not a prevalent enough issue for this response.

This week, former President Barack Obama weighed in on the debate, and his comments are causing him to take serious heat.

Former President Barack Obama slammed Republicans as “systematically” trying to prevent Americans from voting in a campaign speech for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.

“All across the country, Democrats are trying to make it easier to vote, not make it harder to vote, and push back on Republicans who are trying to systematically prevent ordinary citizens from making their voices heard,” Obama said Saturday in Richmond.

“You have to ask yourself, why is it Republicans don’t want you to vote?” he asked.

Glenn Youngkin, the candidate running against McAuliffe, fired back at the former Commander in Chief through a spokesperson.

“Glenn has addressed this multiple times before Obama came to Virginia to bail Terry out, but instead of writing a story about the former President’s false statements, the press is indulging Terry’s fantasies and lies because he can’t run on his failed record and radical vision for the future,” Youngkin spokesperson Christian Martinez told Fox News.

Obama’s office did not immediately respond to a request for clarification on his comments.

Biden Administration Halts Release of JFK Files

Their excuse wasn’t sitting well with some in Congress, however.

Published

on

We cannot examine the modern day conspiracy theory culture in America without giving credit to perhaps the most pervasive and permeating conspiracy-laden event of the last century:  The death of US President John F. Kennedy.

Kennedy, who was shot and killed in his motorcade, and whose alleged killer was then killed during a perp walk, was one of the most influential Presidents of his day, and his disdain for parts of the American government itself has led many to believe that he may have been taken out by forces within the political or intelligence spheres.

Now, some 57 years later, the Biden administration is still interested in keeping some aspects of the event under wraps, and it’s irking Americans who’ve long clamored for transparency. 

Secret files concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy will not be released to the public by next week after all. The national archivist asked for more time to review them, White House officials announced, blaming the delay in part on the pandemic, CBS reports. President Biden issued a statement calling postponement “necessary to protect against identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations.” The files will instead be released in two installments, per the Washington Post.

Not everyone was buying it, however.

The editor of JFKFacts.org, who once sued the CIA for assassination documents, said it’s clear the Biden administration isn’t going to follow the law. Calling Biden’s statement a “COVID dog ate my homework” excuse, Jefferson Morley said Congress should intervene. A group of House members wrote Biden this month calling on him to release the 520 documents that are still secret and 15,834 others that have been made public but include redactions. “Excessive secrecy surrounding President Kennedy’s assassination continues to inspire doubt in the minds of the American public and has a profound impact on the people’s trust in their government,” they wrote.

Theories on who was ultimately responsible for the death of JFK vary wildly, with everyone from the CIA to a Cuban hit squad being pondered as possible perpetrators.
