Illinois town votes to ban assault weapons, fine violators up to $1,000 per day

So can it ban hurtful words too? Can it ban certain people from moving into town limits? Does the Constitution not apply in Deerfield?

There are plenty of opportunities for nullification when it comes to preserving constitutional rights. Lots of laws/commerce fall outside of the Interstate Commerce Clause for instance and so should be challenged.

However basic constitutional rights are guaranteed from Sea to Shining Sea, whether the Deerfield town council understands this or not.

Our bet is that this ordinance is not long for this world.

The mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has once again ignited the public debate around assault weapons and large capacity magazines. And while no sweeping gun control laws have been enacted at the federal level, one town in Illinois is taking matters into its own hands.

The Chicago suburb of Deerfield, Illinois voted on Monday to ban the possession, sale, and manufacture of assault weapons and large capacity magazines to “increase the public’s sense of safety.” What’s more, CBS Chicago reports, anyone refusing to give up their banned firearm will be fined $1,000 a day until the weapon is handed over or removed from the town’s limits.
