This is What Tyranny Looks Like!
Just because they say it's for the children, or they tell you it will make you safer, doesn't mean it will. But it looks as though that is exactly what the folks of Deerfield, Illinois think will happen.
Here's the Story.
Rulemakers in the village of Deerfield, Illinois, have voted unanimously to ban semi-automatic rifles, along with pistols and shotguns "with certain features." Deerfield also voted to ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
The ban passed Monday night outlaws any weapon the village leaders deem "assault weapons", including AR-15s. But the ban also includes “semi-automatic rifles, pistols and shotguns with certain features.”
The new ordinance takes effect June 13th. Residents who still have banned weapons after that date face up to $1,000 fines per day.
The new ordinance was modeled on a ban put in place in Highland Park, Illinois, which went to the United States Supreme Court. The high court let a lower court ruling stand, allowing the ban remain.
Opponents said the ban would make residents less safe, ABC reported.
"You are the bureaucrats that Thomas Jefferson warned us about," said Deerfield resident Dan Cox.
Show of hands.
