Judge Throws Out Illinois Assault Weapons Ban

Colt Law Enforcement Carbine, a great AR-15 for home defense and tactical warfare


The Assault Weapons ban issued in Deerfield, Illinois has effectively been thrown out.

So, Illinois, breathe a sigh of relief and stock up on assault weapons online, safe in the knowledge that one day you might have to lose them in a tragic boating accident.

Buy guns online at the best online gun store, Brownells, right now.

The decree seemed to subvert The Second Amendment and introduce such sweeping rules that a large number of law abiding citizens would soon face fines of $250-$1000 a day until they handed over any weapons that fell foul of the new legislation. June 13th was the official deadline for removing, disposing of or handing in those weapons.

AR-15s, AK-47 and Lots of Others Under Threat

That would have included any Modern Sporting Rifle, including the much-maligned AR-15 and modern-day AK47.  Basically it was down to small capacity hunting rifles if these rules went through.

We’re just saying it wouldn’t be a bad idea to buy the best AR-15s for sale, maybe a semi-auto 308 rifle or a proper 6.5 Creedmoor rifle. Then have a boating accident…

Legal Ways Work For Now

Now a Judge has put the brakes on this dramatic piece of legislation, though. As soon as the ban was announced, two separate lawsuits landed on Deerfield’s door. The Second Amendment Foundation and the Illinois State Rifle Association both challenged the legislation.

SAF Founder Alan Gottlieb said:

You Can’t Just Reinterpret Gun Laws Like This

Deerfield has argued it is simply reinterpreting the existing laws and amending the Firearm Concealed Carrry Act, but the Judge isn’t buying it. Circuit Court Judge Luis Berroness issued a temporary restraining order and agreed that the legislation was going too far.

In his conclusion in favor of the plaintiff(s), Berrones wrote in part:

Deerfield’s officials aren’t ready to give it up just yet. An official statement on it website Tuesday reads:

“We are reviewing with our legal team the full written opinion that the Judge entered. We will, of course, honor the order issued by the Court and temporarily not enforce the ordinance; but we are certainly going to review all of the options available to the Village, including the right to appeal the decision to the Illinois Appellate Court.”

Individual states are still responding to the ‘clear and present danger of 3D printed guns, some States are introducing cameras on cop guns and more accountability, others are defunding. California is banning everything except degenerate behavior and yet Open Carry has been declared a constitutional right. So it’s a mess.

California is basically the model for this post on a dystopian future where the good guys go to jail to stay safe. It’s sort of playing out…
