Judge blocks Illinois town's assault weapons ban: report
« on: June 13, 2018, 11:36:00 AM »
A judge has issued a temporary restraining order to block a Chicago suburb's assault weapons ban the day before the measure was to go into effect on Wednesday.

Officials in Deerfield, Ill., unanimously approved the ordinance in April to ban the possession, manufacture or sale of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines.

The Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday that a Lake County Circuit Court Judge Luis Berrones had temporarily blocked the ordinance until the plaintiffs in two lawsuits over the ban could be heard.

How can this be???  We've been assured many times in these pages that communities controlling the weapons that can be waltzed about in the Town Square is perfectly constitutional, and moral too.   :pondering:
I will NOT comply.
Thanks to Cripplecreek and Oceander for the medal!
