Illinois Assault weapons ban

(Temporarily) blocked!
Illinois Judge Temporarily Blocks Assault-Weapons Ban - WSJ

Judge Joshua Morrison of Effingham County Circuit Court in southeastern Illinois granted a temporary restraining order against implementing the law in a lawsuit brought on behalf of hundreds of plaintiffs on the grounds that the legislative maneuvers used to pass the law were unconstitutional.

“The defendants in this case did not follow the procedural requirements necessary for this legislation to stand up to the strict scrutiny that is required when restricting rights to avoid definitional irreparable harm,” Judge Morrison said in the ruling.

Mr. Pritzker said in a statement that he wasn’t surprised by the ruling and that he remained confident the law would stand.

And they mean even less to the criminal.

It’s unfortunate that lives are lost to the tragic misuse of AR 15 style firearms. The real facts are that the guns that kill the most people are handguns. The banned guns won’t deter most criminal action. Illinois would do better by controlling who has a gun. Keep firearms locked up and FUND the police.

IMO. I don’t think that the Illinois ban has anything to do with “Public Safety” . It’s about control…

IMO your optic should not be delayed by the law but possibly by an over abundance of scared shitless!

I just returned from a local gun show where everything was on display with signs that said some items were not available to Illinois residents.

I was able to buy 10 round magazines for my AR. Just in case the law is not overturned.
