Legal Insurrection by Mary Chastain Friday, January 20, 2023

“The Defendants in this case did not follow the procedural requirements necessary for this legislation to stand up to the strict scrutiny that is required when restricting rights to avoid definitional irreparable harm.”

Judge Joshua Morrison of the Circuit Court of the Fourth Judicial Circuit in Effingham County, Illinois, placed a temporary restraining order on the Illinois gun ban.

HB 5471 “bans the delivery, sale and purchase of any” of those so-called “assault weapons” in Illinois. It also doesn’t allow a rifle “to accommodate more than 10 rounds, with a 15-round limit for handguns.”

Effingham County-based Accuracy Firearms filed a lawsuit against the state, alleging the law violated the Second Amendment. Another “lawsuit was filed in Crawford County,” claiming the law violated the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.
