Second Amendment Group Sues Gun Grabbing City
Article from Daily Wire by Amanda Prestigiacomo.
On Thursday, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) filed a lawsuit against the Chicago suburb of Deerfield, Illinois for their recent gun ban passed by the Village Board of Trustees.
As reported by The Daily Wire earlier this week, the ban passed Monday night “outlaws any weapon the village leaders deem ‘assault weapons,’ including AR-15s. But the ban also includes ‘semi-automatic rifles, pistols and shotguns with certain features.'”
The suit was filed in the 19th Judicial Circuit Court in Lake County and the plaintiffs are represented by Glen Ellyn attorney David Sigale.
“The lawsuit challenges the village ban under a 2013 amended state statute that declared ‘the regulation of the possession or ownership of assault weapons are exclusive powers and functions of this State. Any ordinance or regulation, or portion of that ordinance or regulation, that purports to regulate the possession or ownership of assault weapons in a manner that is inconsistent with this Act, shall be invalid…'” explains the news release.

you lost because you failed to recognize what the people really wanted and the Democratic Party failed to meet the needs of American citizens. Now the likes of Michelle Obama parriots the likes of Hillary Clinton with her lame excuses of her total misunderstanding of the voters of this country. When your head is in false clouds you are blind to TRUTH and REALITY . Trump had the answer…..so CHANGE your ways and wake up to the error of your ways …….try listening to Trump with opened eyes and ears and recognize your incompetence IN ALL THINGS American….
In view of this action, no owner of a forbidden firearm would dream of moving to such an oppressive town. But an unintended consequence is any owner stuck in Deerfield who hides one and prays he’ll never have to use it for self-defense, would never dream of using it to protect someone outside his home. Compared to confiscation, the difference is negligible and the town would become a more dangerous place to live. In view of Chicago’s colossal crime and murder rates, it would seem more prudent to focus on criminals instead of working moms & pops.
Good…..we need to start suing nationwide to ensure our rights!
this is exactly why we have the 2ndA because of a lawless Gov. the founders were well aware of what happens when Gov. is out of control, and has no regard for the peoples rights.
