So apparently Deerfield IL just passed a city ordinance making illegal to have an "assault style" weapon. You have until June 2 to surrender your firearm and it is a $1000 fine per day that you fail to do so. Curious to what you guys think about this. See the links below to their official website.

I think it is illegal and a violation of our 2nd Amendment Rights. It should be challenged in the court of law and the city officials should be sued, charged with criminal offenses and fired.

No way this stands. This is a terrible overreach of their authority and I hope their PD tells them to pound sand when they want them to confiscate the guns.

I would gather together everyone with an AR or any other gun and go tell them they have made an error. That is why we have been given the right, to use it to deter the gov't from doing this very thing.

It did not take long for the NRA to respond. This is a great example of why we need something like the NRA.

"The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed — where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once."
-- Judge Alex Kozinski
(1950-) US Circuit Judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (1985-2017)

Not just what they call "assault" firearms but anything that holds more than 10 rounds like a 10-22 or a pistol that holds more than 10 rounds.

The city just cost the tax payers money. If it makes it through the first court it will be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court all the time costing the tax payers money. So I think the citizens of Deerfield should vote all that voted for this out of office.

Any battle will likely come down to which side has more money.

That said, this is legal as the US Constitution does not stipulate what the type of firearm can be held by the people.

There have been acts and laws put in place that spell what can not be possessed. Or what steps are needed to possess certain weapons. But, nothing says what can be possessed. Therefore, I don’t believe any challenge would be successful.

I think the rub comes in banning a material possession that was otherwise legal, without due process. Even the 2004 AW Ban included a clause that allowed people in legal possession to keep what they had prior to the ban.

I don’t like it and I thjnk we will see more instances of this happening elsewhere.

Just my 2cents
