Residents of Deerfield, Illinois have 60 days to turn in their “assault weapons” and large capacity magazines, or face fines of up to $1000 dollars a day. Authorities justified the ban by pointing to the recent spate of mass shootings and the anti-gun words of the local high school students. Second Amendment advocates have vowed to fight the ban in court with the help of the NRA.
Residents of Deerfield, Illinois have 60 days to turn in their “assault weapons” or face fines of up to $1000 dollars a day.
Earlier this week, the The Village Board of Trustees passed an ordinance which banned certain types of “assault weapons” and large capacity magazines, including the the Ruger 10/22, which can accept magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Semi-automatic pistols that can hold more than 10 rounds have also been banned. Law enforcement and retired law enforcement members of the community are exempted from the ban.
Residents will have to either sell the weapons, transfer ownership to someone living outside of the town, turn them into police or pay the exorbitant fines, which range from $250 to $1000 per day per gun. The deadline is June 13.
Authorities justified the ban by pointing to the recent spate of mass shootings, including last year’s Sutherland Springs shooting, which was stopped by a man who used one of the very guns Deerfield has now banned.
Writer Jack Burns predicts that some residents will refuse to follow the order or pay the fines, resulting in “major turmoil and arrests in the event of non-compliance.”
Indeed, some residents have already vowed to disobey the ban.
“There’s an ancient and honored American tradition called disobeying an unjust law…I have urged (people) to listen to their conscience and if so moved do not obey this law,” remarked Joel Siegel, a resident of Lincolnwood.
Deerfield Mayor Harriet Rosenthal suggested that she was moved to bring about the ban by the words of students from the local high school.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about.

The school resource Deputy Sheriff never attempted to confront the shooter. Broward County Sheriffs Department is already being blamed for ignoring a warning from a neighbor’s son on February 5 that Nikolas Cruz sent an Instagram stating that he “planned to shoot up the school on Instagram”. The FBI also did not follow up on a warning that Cruz previously had said on social media that he planned to be a “professional school shooter”. [It’s as though law enforcement secretly wanted a tragedy like this as an excuse for something — like gun control.]
