Democrats motto is- Never let a crisis go to waste… The truth is- Democrats are using Stoneman Douglas High School shooting for political propaganda. It is clear that they see this tragedy as an “opportunity” to promote their political ideology. They will keep using any reason to take control of Our Right to bear arms and will not stop until they do.
The far left organized a March for Our Lives which was held today in several cities in the US, where liberals and Hollywood elites were marching for gun control and making the assumption that those 17 victims who lost lives in Parkland shooting would have wanted stricter gun laws.
Gun owners had their own response, gun sales soared in March amid concerns that Democrats and their left-leaning allies were working to enact major gun restrictions at both the state and federal levels. The FBI’s National Criminal Background Check System (NICS) processed more potential gun owners last month than it did in March 2016, when Americans went on a buying spree out of fear Hillary Clinton might win the presidential election.
But one small town in Illinois did something that is unconstitutional if you ask me!
Owners of assault weapons living in north suburban Deerfield have until June 13 to remove the firearms from within village limits or face daily fines after a ban was approved Monday night.
The Village Board of Trustees unanimously approved a ban on certain types of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, amending a 2013 ordinance that regulated the storage of those items.
The new ordinance prohibits the possession, sale, and manufacturing of certain types of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines within the village, according to the ordinance. One change from the law as it was originally discussed exempts retired police officers from the ban, according to Village Manager Kent Street.
Violations carry a fine of between $250 and $1,000 per day, according to Matthew Rose, the village attorney. He said the fine is levied each day until there is compliance.
Street said the new law is modeled after one approved by Highland Park in 2013. That ban survived a legal challenge by one of the city’s residents and the Illinois State Rifle Association. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held that legislation constitutional and the U.S. Supreme Court let the decision stand when it declined to take up the appeal.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
With guns, we are “citizens”. Without them, we are “subjects”.
