Chicago suburb bans assault weapons and large-capacity magazines

Deerfield Mayor Harriet Rosenthal


Via Yahoo (Reuters) – A Chicago suburb has banned the possession, sale and manufacture of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines in response to the massacre at a Florida high school and other recent mass shootings in the United States.
Residents of Democratic-leaning Deerfield, Illinois have until June 13 to remove any firearms and magazines that fall outside the new restrictions or face a fine of between $250 and $1,000 per day, according to an ordinance passed by the town board on Monday night.
The ban was a direct response to the Feb. 14 killing of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and the student-led campaign for tighter restrictions on guns inspired by the mass shooting, the ordinance said.
The Deerfield decision is likely to face legal challenges from gun rights groups that see it as a violation of their constitutional rights. A similar ban in Highland Park, Illinois was challenged all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and upheld.
The National Rifle Association and the Illinois State Rifle Association did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
“We hope that our local decision helps spur state and national leaders to take steps to make our communities safer,” Deerfield Mayor Harriet Rosenthal said in a statement.
Opponents of the ban fear the town will now try to outlaw other firearms, further violating their right under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to own guns.
“First it’s going to be assault rifles. There will be new bans in the future. It’s just a matter of time,” Deerfield resident Larry Nordal told the Chicago Tribune. Nordal did not immediately respond to a request for further comment.
The ban defines assault weapons as a range of firearms such as semiautomatic rifles like the AR-15, a gun similar to the one used in the Florida massacre. High-capacity magazines are defined as those holding more than 10 rounds.
Deerfield High School senior Ariella Kharasch, who supported the legislation, wants more action on the local and national levels. “This is our generation’s fight. We’re going to keep fighting and this is part of it. Change happens gradually step by step,” Kharasch told the Chicago Tribune.
Some excerpts from the ordinance (which lists specific firearms):
“…may increase the public’s sense of safety by effecting a cultural change which communicates the normative value that assault weapons should have no role or purpose in civil society…”
“…the possession, manufacture and sale of assault weapons in the Village of Deerfield is not reasonably necessary to protect an individual’s right of self-defense…”

What’s an “assault rifle”? Is that like using an assault automobile to run people over?

Those who are determined to eviscerate the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment tried with Sandy Hook, but failed. So they engineered another mass school shooting, this time in a high school in Parkland, FL, with older students who can be the public voices and faces for gun control, unlike the 6-year-old kids of Sandy Hook.
Just goes to show that false flags really do work, because most Americans are sheeple who adamantly refuse to investigate and think for themselves.

This was sent to me today thought it was worth the read. I think its been around for a bit but still true today. For those that don’t know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an Australian. General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently. Read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you have to love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. This is a portion of an ABC radio interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was… Read more »

Yes, that’s why they do it. Somebody needs to challenge it, right NOW.

I saw this article posted by Sandy Hook Hoax on Twitter a day or two ago. What are the odds of this happening by coincidence?
In 2016, two students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, won honorable mention for their C-SPAN StudentCam contest entry on gun violence in schools.

I’d say the odds are exactly zero!

Just to help understand this ploy, what they do is this; they pass a local law. In order to challenge it you have to have “standing”. That means you have to be directly affected. They will probably confine that to living in the area. If they do these in areas that are anti-gun they can get several laws passed. From their standpoint the more, the merrier. Then they turn around, count up the number of laws and declare a precedent. Then the job becomes trying to prove that these communities are not representative of the country at large.

I’d say Connecticut’s towns are the prettiest and most serene places in America. The cities, and even the Malloy crowd’s Stamford, which sustains its wealth mainly by licking Wall Street ass, are nightmares for all but the corrupt Democrat elites. A young couple contemplating a move to Fairfield County have to be out of their freakin’ minds unless they can comfortably afford to buy in Darien, Wilton, Westport, or Fairfield, after paying at least half their income in total taxes, which for young families who spend all they make includes that hefty sales tax. What a pity Connecticut will be… Read more »

Yes, it is very disappointing. Their goal is total disarmament. More importantly, they represent the worst of human traits. They want to impose their desires on others whether they like it or not.
They have no tolerance or respect for others. For these creatures, the end justifies the means. Don’t be fooled by their protestations to the contrary. They want to disarm us completely. Whether they believe their own hype or not is irrelevant. They are assuming a power over us that they have no right to.

All this knee jerk reaction and everyone running around in circles and not working together is wasting precious time and putting innocents into danger. We have always been a nation of laws and now we have all these renegades bucking the system. I see where we need to start.

Yes, meet the last major semi-auto pistol (barring a small handful of .22 target pieces today) not capable of accepting an extended magazine in all it’s clip-loaded glory (first produced in 1896):comment image

Mayor Harriet (((Rosenthal)))’s anti-gun story needs to be added to this list:
A site with links to articles covering modern “gun control” from 1968 through 2018 instigated by people like (((Harriet R.))):
“Disarming Goyim”:

I’m not sure if the Kharasch kid’s name would be from the same group.

To Jews seeking gun control, remember the Hebron Massacre (many years before there was a recognized state of Israel) and the brave resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto.

Reblogged this on necltr and commented:
Assuming the MSM reporting to be correct, are not Sheriff Israel and Parkland authorities bearing direct responsibility for the deaths of the innocent children? Was that dreadful day brought about by a most unusual confluence of errors leading to that disaster, or …, could it have be seen as a sacrifice needed to put down the NRA and disarm America? I can’t/won’t believe the latter.
