Democrats keep saying they don’t want to take your guns.
They use terms like “common sense gun control” to mask their true intentions.
But one city just decided to go all in and outlaw the Second Amendment.
Chicago is well known for having some of the most extreme gun control in the entire country.
And along with that, they have a massive problem with murders.
While some would look at that, and consider freeing up the gun laws to let citizens defend themselves, a suburb of Chicago went the other way.
The Village Board of Trustees in Deerfield, Illinois passed perhaps the most stringent anti-gun ordinance in history.
It bans “assault weapons” and large capacity magazines.
Those found in violation will face heavy fines of up to $1,000 a day until the weapon is confiscated.
This ordinance flies in the face of the Second Amendment, essentially making it useless for residents of the city.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“A city in Illinois is making a gun control activists’ dreams come true.
The Village Board of Trustees in Deerfield, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, approved an ordinance to ban “assault weapons” and large capacity magazines, Cleveland 19 News reports.
Violators will face a hefty fine. If the owner of an assault weapon lives in the town does not voluntarily turn over their banned weapon, he will be fined $1,000 a day until the weapon is confiscated.
According to Cleveland 19 News, the term “assault rifle” applies to “Semiautomatic rifles with a fixed magazine and a capacity to hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition are banned. Shotguns that have revolving chambers are also outlawed.”
In a press release sent out by the city, the mayor cites the Parkland, Fla. high school shooting as the motivator for the ordinance:
On February 20, just days after the Parkland, Florida mass shooting, Mayor Rosenthal directed staff and the Village attorney to prepare a report concerning the implementation of a ban on assault weapons similar to that of Highland Park. “Over four years ago, the state gave home rule communities a window of time to pass some type of assault weapon law with the understanding it could be revisited at a later date,” Rosenthal said. “I believe the time has now come to revisit a complete ban of assault weapons.”
The ordinance passed unanimously and goes into effect on June 13.”
While the left would like you to think they aren’t coming for people’s guns, this new ordinance clearly shows they are lying.
It’s not very surprising in response to calls from prominent leftists, like former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens to repeal the Second Amendment.
The left hates the fact that we have a right to keep and bear arms in the United States, and will do anything to get around that.
If they had it their way, this would be implemented nationwide.
