Totalitarians, Leftists, Fascists, they are all the same, they want control, and that means disarming citizens, no matter how long it takes
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.
Back in 2013, residents were likely told no one wanted to “take” their guns. How did that work out?
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.
And will these gun grabbers stop there? Are you even serious?
In the ordinance, the definition of an assault weapon includes, among others, semiautomatic rifles that have a fixed magazine with a capacity to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition; shotguns with a revolving cylinder; and semiautomatic pistols and rifles that can accept large-capacity magazines and possess one of a list of other features. Among the dozens of specific models cited are the AR-15, AK-47 and Uzi, according to the ordinance.
Semi-Automatic? That defines pretty much every firearm except revolvers, bolt and lever action rifles and pump action shotguns. And not the “high-capacity” nonsense. Everyone of the pistols I own, except my revolvers “can” accept mags exceeding ten rounds. So, I would not be allowed to keep my Ruger SR9c. Yes it comes with a ten-round magazine standard, and a 17-round magazine. Because it “accepts” a larger magazine would not just make possessing the 17-round magazine illegal it would make the pistol illegal in Deerfield.
So, if I lived in the People’s Republic of Deerfield, I would basically be disarmed. And yes, these same folks will eventually come after everyone who owns guns. It is not a question of if, but of when. Listen to Statist Ariella Kharasch
Ariella Kharasch, a Deerfield High School senior who favors the legislation, said she wants more action both on a local and national level.
“This is our fight,” Kharasch said. “This is our generation’s fight. We’re going to keep fighting and this is part of it. Change happens gradually step by step. The fight does not end at the borders of our village.”
