Democrats took control of both chambers of the state legislature only weeks ago and are pushing gun control legislation, universal background checks, an “assault weapons” ban, and a red-flag law. In response, gun owners joined with their sheriffs in more than 75 counties and formed Second-Amendment sanctuary counties.
A NJ housing developer issued a notice to its renters advising them that “No one will be permitted to store, or carry a gun or rifle, or any other type of firearm of any kind in the building, or on the grounds.” If a firearm is discovered, they say they will evict. [Before you say that the owner can set whatever rules he wishes on his own property, would you approve if the owner ordered you to speak only a certain language or to refrain from reading certain religious books while on his property?]
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.
