Pro-Gun Group Taking Action to Stop Assault Weapons Ban Just Weeks Before it Takes Effect

This fight is crucial!

Published

Pro-gun groups are joining forces in asking a Lake County Circuit Court judge to issue a restraining order against a ban on assault weapons in the city of Deerfield, Illinois that is due to take effect in just a matter of weeks.

This is the latest of many attempts by anti-gun leftists to demolish the Second Amendment rights of American citizens living in their communities. What many liberals fail to grasp is that these bans are useless, and one only needs to look at Chicago to see its that’s true.

The ordinance enacted April 2 by the Deerfield Village Board gives residents until June 13 to turn in any guns that fit the village’s definition of assault weapons, remove them from the village or modify the guns so they’re no longer considered assault weapons. The ordinance empowers the town’s police chief to confiscate the assault weapons of anyone charged under the ordinance.

Owners found in violation can be fined up to $1,000 a day, according to the ordinance.

Two lawsuits were filed in April challenging the ordinance on various grounds, including a claim that the ordinance deprives gun owners of property they are legally entitled to possess. The plaintiffs in both lawsuits are asking for a temporary restraining order to block Deerfield from enforcing the ban until the court can hear their arguments for a permanent injunction.

A hearing to consider the restraining order motions is set for June 8, just days before the ban is set to take effect.

“The fast-approaching compliance date compels plaintiffs to seek more immediate and intermediate relief until this matter can be fully heard on the merits,” said attorney David Sigale in a petition on behalf of Deerfield gun owner Daniel Easterday, the Illinois State Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation.

Sigale’s petition makes not of the fact that Deerfield residents who are found to be in possession of what the government deems “assault weapons” will face confiscation and destruction of their property, massive fines, and prosecution.

“This causes significant harm to the plaintiffs in the form of loss of property rights and criminal penalties.”

The second of the two court challenges comes from Guns Save Lives and Deerfield gun owner John William Wombacher III and is backed by the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislation Action. His suit claims that this ban is in violation of the Illinois Constitution and Eminent Domain Act as it is the confiscation of property without compensation.

One of the most disturbing things about all of this talk of banning “assault weapons” is how unclear the term itself actually is. Who gets to determine what is an “assault weapon,” since, you know, anything used in an assault could be considered an “assault weapon.”  A shoe in that case, or a rubber mallet used to strike someone over the head, could be considered an assault weapon.

The lack of understanding about how guns actually work is quite frustrating as well. What this comes down to is a ban on the AR-15, which many folks in culture seem to think is an automatic weapon. It isn’t. It requires a single pull of the trigger for every round fired.

At the end of the day, the Second Amendment is federal law, and as such, it provides protection for the right to own a firearm, even AR-15s, in order for citizens to possess weapons that will provide a defense against both tyranny and criminal elements.

If this ban is allowed to go through, it will violate that amendment and the God-given right to self-defense.

Here’s to praying for a swift and decisive victory.

The saga of Hunter Biden is far from over. In fact, we’ve really just began to scratch the surface. A whole bunch of people could potentially serve some serious time behind bars. Not really. That’ll never happen, unfortunately. Anyway, here’s the latest on the Biden crime family – via Daily Caller: Federal investigators obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against one of Hunter Biden’s Chinese business associates, suggesting that the executive was suspected of acting as a covert agent of a foreign government. Prosecutors revealed the existence of at least one FISA warrant against Chi Ping Patrick Ho, known as Patrick Ho, in a Feb. 8, 2018 court filing obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. CONTINUED: Ho was charged on Dec. 18, 2017 with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and money laundering related to CEFC China Energy contracts in Uganda and Chad. Ho had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy company prior to his arrest. Hunter Biden was part of a business consortium that sought a partnership with CEFC in May 2017. A Senate report released last month said that an affiliate of CEFC wired $5 million to Biden’s law firm from August 2017 through August 2018. Here’s President Trump on Hunter from a rally a few days ago… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VhA9yMX27U

‘I Think Joe Biden’ & His ‘Family Are Compromised’ By China, Says Hunter Business Partner

How about them apples?

One of the major reasons Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016 was because he wasn’t indebted to anybody, despite the lies lefties pushed with Russiagate. He could’ve financed his campaign himself, if he wanted to. That’s not the case with Joe Biden. And the former VP is as corrupt as it gets. From The Daily Wire: Tony Bobulinski, a whistleblower who was a former business partner of Hunter Biden, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night that he believes that the Biden family, including Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, is compromised by China.

Kamala Harris, among other prominent Democrats, Fox News has learned. An email exclusively obtained by Fox News, with the subject line “Phase one domestic contacts/ projects” and dated May 15, 2017, Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, shared a list of “key domestic contacts for phase one target projects.” The email is unrelated to the laptop or hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son. It’s too bad the mainstream media refuses to tell the American people.
