Default Court tells Illinois City NO ASSAULT W BAN

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...hicago-suburb/

"Judge Berrones wrote:

A permanent injunction is issued enjoining Defendant Village of Deerfield, its agents, officials or police department from enforcing any provision of Ordinance No. 0-18-01 and Ordinance No. 0-18-19 making it unlawful to keep, possess, bear, manufacture, sell, transfer, or transport assault weapons or large capacity magazines as defined in these ordinances.

The NRA supported the challenge and celebrated the victory:"

A BIG ^5 to Richard Pearson and the ISRA on this valuable win !

This case is not as beneficial to gun owners as some might think. The case really revolves around state law preemption of local laws. Some modern sporting rifle bans are still in force in locations such as parts of Cook County and the City of Chicago because they were put in place during the period allowed for when state law preemption was enacted. More importantly, a state wide ban is currently pending in the Illinois state legislature where there is a democratic governor and super majorities in both the state house and senate. Probably money spent by the organizations to overturn the city ordinance without any real return on the money in the long run.

I'll still take this win. Any win. This one sends a message to cities and towns to not assume they can 'keep' any 2nd amendment ban they legislate.. And it sets more precedent. I believe a ton of small low-budget cities would pursue this nonsense if their fear of blowing legal budgets were not there.

There is plenty to appreciate here.

Also, any ban at the state level should be a pretty straight-forward thing as it is in direct conflict with Heller ruling. Should be, I say...

This case only boiled down to a preemption violation, meaning localities in IL can no longer pass any bans such as this. It wouldn't stop the state from passing a ban.

How did that happen so fast? We get several years out of unconstitutional gun laws here.

More good news from Illinois. Here’s a press release from the Second Amendment Foundation . . .

SAF, ISRA WIN AS ILLINOIS APPEALS COURT DISMISSES DEERFIELD APPEAL

The Second Amendment Foundation has posted yet another victory in Illinois, as the Second District Appellate Court has dismissed an attempt by the Village of Deerfield to challenge a permanent injunction against the community’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” and “large-capacity magazines.”

SAF was joined in the case by the Illinois State Rifle Association—it’s partner in the landmark 2010 U.S. Supreme Court victory in McDonald v. City of Chicago—on behalf of Deerfield resident Daniel Easterday. Deerfield’s appeal was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction, the court ruled.

The plaintiffs were represented by Glen Ellyn attorney David Sigale.

“This effectively shuts down any further effort by the Deerfield administration to encumber law-abiding citizens in the community who own the kinds of legal firearms city officials want to ban,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “We were delighted to once again be working with our good friends at the Illinois State Rifle Association. Together with David Sigale, we make a pretty good team.

This is great news! Cities and locales need to be aware of preemption. Hopefully the state doesn’t come out with such a ban.
