[Ed. – This is good news. The city’s ban was a feel-good mishmash of mandates and punishments for things that apparently sounded “assault weapon-y,” with the whole thing being absurd and unenforceable. Law that actually looks and functions like “law”; what a concept.]
In a clear victory for the Second Amendment, a Lake County judge has ruled that the city of Deerfield, Ill., violated state law when they passed an ordinance banning the sale and possession of various weapons and large capacity magazines. …
The judge, Luis Berrones, backed the plaintiffs, which included the Illinois State Rifle Association, Second Amendment Foundation, and Daniel Easterday. Berrones minced no words in issuing the permanent injunction.
According to The Chicago Tribune, Judge Luis Berrones issued a permanent injunction against the Chicago suburb, writing that the plaintiff firearm owners have “a clearly ascertainable right to not be subjected to a preempted and unenforceable ordinance” that bans them from having these firearms, mandates monetary fines for possessing them and enables law enforcement to seize these firearms.
