Second Amendment Foundation Files Suit Against Chicago Suburb For ‘Assault Weapon’ Gun Grab

On Thursday, the Second Amendment
Foundation (SAF) filed a lawsuit against the Chicago suburb
of Deerfield, Illinois for their recent gun ban passed by the Village Board of
We've been watching and all of these rifles remain INNOCENT...so far.
As reported by The Daily Wire earlier this week,
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.'"
Those who do not comply with the
ordinance — which is set to take effect on June 13 — will face up to $1,000
fines per day.
In a press release announcing the lawsuit, SAF
confirmed that the Illinois State Rifle Association and a gun-owning private
citizen from the village named Daniel Easterday would be joining them in their
The suit was filed in the 19th
Judicial Circuit Court in Lake County and the plaintiffs are represented by
Glen Ellyn attorney David Sigale.
"The lawsuit challenges the
village ban under a 2013 amended state statute that declared 'the regulation of
the possession or ownership of assault weapons are exclusive powers and
functions of this State. Any ordinance or regulation, or portion of that
ordinance or regulation, that purports to regulate the possession or ownership
of assault weapons in a manner that is inconsistent with this Act, shall be
invalid…'" explains the news release.
SAF founder and Executive Vice
President Alan M. Gottlieb said the gun ban "flies in the face of state
"While the village is trying to
disguise this as an amendment to an existing ordinance, it is, in fact, a new
law that entirely bans possession of legally-owned semi-auto firearms, with no
exception for guns previously owned, or any provision for self-defense,"
"The new ordinance also provides
for confiscation and destruction of such firearms and their original capacity
magazines," he continued. "What is particularly outrageous about this
new law is that it levies fines of up to $1,000 a day against anyone who
refuses to turn in their gun and magazines or move them out of the village by
the time the ordinance takes effect in June. This certainly puts the lie to
claims by anti-gunners that ‘nobody is coming to take your guns.'"
According to PR Newswire, SAF, which was
founded in 1974, "is the nation's oldest and largest tax-exempt education,
research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional
right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms."
SAF currently has over 650,000
members and supporters.
