Residents of Illinois Village Have 60 Days to Surrender Guns Or Face $1000 a Day Fine

Residents of Illinois Village Have 60 Days to Surrender Guns Or Face 00 a Day Fine

This article comes from InfoWars.com

by Paul Joseph Watson

Residents of Deerfield, Illinois have 60 days to turn in their “assault weapons” or face fines of up to $1000 dollars a day.

Earlier this week, the The Village Board of Trustees passed an ordinance which banned certain types of “assault weapons” and large capacity magazines, including the the Ruger 10/22, which can accept magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

Semi-automatic pistols that can hold more than 10 rounds have also been banned. Law enforcement and retired law enforcement members of the community are exempted from the ban.

Residents will have to either sell the weapons, transfer ownership to someone living outside of the town, turn them into police or pay the exorbitant fines, which range from $250 to $1000 per day per gun. The deadline is June 13.

Authorities justified the ban by pointing to the recent spate of mass shootings, including last year’s Sutherland Springs shooting, which was stopped by a man who used one of the very guns Deerfield has now banned.

  1. This is not going to stop. It will only stop when we stand up to these constant attacks on our gun rights. The Left, Liberals, Communists, etc. don’t care about law abiding citizens as they know they’re not going to go out and shoot somebody. But they do care about the number of guns, ammo, etc. that American citizens have in their possession because a disarmed populace is easily defeated in battle. The reason the Left isn’t concerned about criminals having and being able to get their hands on guns and ammo (even though we’ve been disarmed) is they plan on using these criminals in a war against us. Doesn’t it make sense that they won’t talk about the criminals with weapons or disarming them but want to disarm us? I rest my case.

      1. I was wondering when the fellows from Chicago S. side get wind of this and may make things not so nice for the folks in Deerfield.

  2. I nominate the Mayor and Board of Trustees to be the ones to go door to door and order people to surrender their guns.

    1. They’ve said they’re not going door to door to confiscate, it’s more voluntary so as not to spook a standoff. At least that’s what other articles and social media have said.

  3. No person who serves within ANY position or office within our governments – state and federal, was ever DELEGATED ANY authority over the American people and weapons, not what type, hot how many, etc.

    This stuff can ONLY happen here if those who serve within our government, particularly “law enforcement” and the military do not keep their Oaths. They will not have the same excuse as those in Hitler’s Germany, Stalin/Lenin’s Russia, Mao’s China, etc that they were “just following orders” and “just doing their jobs” (even though that did NOT absolve them of their crimes and many were hung anyway) because that Oath was the last safeguard the framers gave us. Every Oath taker is personally responsible for their actions while serving within our government. They are NOT to follow unLawful orders, etc. If they do, and if the side who orders them loses, they will be looked down upon in a worse way by those that life because there really IS NO EXCUSE.

    Remember, keep your Oath to the US Constitution and say “No, I will not follow that unlawful order”. Though, watch your back, because you may not know the other “boys in ‘blue'” as well as you think you do, or those who fight beside you in the military – friendly fire, no one coming to have your back when called, etc. This already happens, has for year.

    “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.” Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, October 10, 1787

    “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.” Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778

    “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, 1833

    Charlie Reese, syndicated columnist: “”A government that intended to protect the liberty of the people would not disarm them. A government planning the opposite most certainly and logically would disarm them. And so it has been in this century. Check out the history of Germany, the Soviet Union, Cuba, China and Cambodia.”

    Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878): “To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm … is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.”

    Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859): “The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the “high powers” delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.’ A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power.”

    Bliss vs. Commonwealth, 12 Ky. (2 Litt.) 90, at 92, and 93, 13 Am. Dec. 251 (1822): “For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing of concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. But it should not be forgotten, that it is not only a part of the right that is secured by the constitution; it is the right entire and complete, as it existed at the adoption of the constitution; and if any portion of that right be impaired, immaterial how small the part may be, and immaterial the order of time at which it be done, it is equally forbidden by the constitution.”

    Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846): ” `The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right.”

    It has been well established that the original intent of the 2nd amendment was to enable the people to defend against tyranny which invariably comes in the form of an overbearing and oppressive government. This right to defense is not special to Americans and is a natural right of all peoples.
    In the 70s and 80’s the Afghani militia (the mujahideen) was engaged against tyranny (Soviets). In order to aid them in their fight against their oppressors, the USA sent Stinger shoulder mounted rocket launchers so they could wage an asymmetrical battle against the much better equipped Soviet forces.
    Therefore our own federal government established the precedent that, in the age of a modern military, rocket launchers (Bazookas) fall within the scope of weapons necessary for citizen militias fighting against tyranny – inadvertently making the case that they should be covered under the 2nd amendment. http://www.newswithviews.com/baldwin/baldwin800.htm

    Gary Hart: “A permanent standing military seeks causes for its continued existence and resources to maintain itself. A citizen army–an army of the people–participates in the debate as to why it exists, what threat it must repel, and how and where it may be used. For a democratic republic, there is a world of difference between these two institutions.” (Sen. Gary Hart )

    Don B. Kates, writing on statistical patterns in gun crime: “…Virtually never are murderers the ordinary, law-abiding people against whom gun bans are aimed. Almost without exception, murderers are extreme aberrants with lifelong histories of crime, substance abuse, psychopathology, mental retardation and/or irrational violence against those around them, as well as other hazardous behavior, e.g., automobile and gun accidents.”

    Charles Austin Beard (1874-1948): “You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the great struggle for independence.” (Attributed to Charles Austin Beard, but I have not verified this)

    Hubert H. Humphrey, 1960: “Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms. […] the right of the citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.”

    Colin Greenwood, in the study “Firearms Control”, 1972: “No matter how one approaches the figures, one is forced to the rather startling conclusion that the use of firearms in crime was very much less when there were no controls of any sort and when anyone, convicted criminal or lunatic, could buy any type of firearm without restriction. Half a century of strict controls on pistols has ended, perversely, with a far greater use of this weapon in crime than ever before.”

    Hubert H. Humphrey, 1960: “Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms. […] the right of the citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.”

    Report of the Subcommittee On The Constitution of the Committee On The Judiciary, United States Senate, 97th Congress, second session (February, 1982), SuDoc# Y4.J 89/2: Ar 5/5: “The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner.”

    Stephen P. Halbrook, “That Every Man Be Armed”, 1984: “In recent years it has been suggested that the Second Amendment protects the “collective” right of states to maintain militias, while it does not protect the right of “the people” to keep and bear arms. If anyone entertained this notion in the period during which the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were debated and ratified, it remains one of the most closely guarded secrets of the eighteenth century, for no known writing surviving from the period between 1787 and 1791 states such a thesis.”

    Yoshimi Ishikawa, Japanese author, in the LA Times 15 Oct 1992: “Americans have the will to resist because you have weapons. If you don’t have a gun, freedom of speech has no power.”

    1. Cal, That is just it, This is a NWO heavily backed Big Dog. They care nothing about the Constitution nor the rule of law. It is just what feels right to them and to get their Agenda 21,call it what you want through.They are basically saying to the ones that are awake “SURRENDER” They are like a cat playing while killing the mouse. Lord Jesus Help Us.

  4. “Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled, Here once the embattled farmers stood, And fired the shot heard round the world.” – RWE

  5. I have been saying the same thing for a few years now. It is never the criminals fault for the crimes they are committing. It is the law enforcement and the people, who get put on trial and protested against for killing a criminal. So, now their common bond is make gun free zones and take away law abiding citizens ability to defend their-selves, and let the criminals have a field day. I have had to draw my fire arm 3 times in the last 10 years, and show it 4 times to stop a threat and attempted robbery, plus an attempted Home invasion at my home while my wife and children were sleeping. But I have never shot anyone yet, ” and I hope I never have to “. But If i wasn’t armed at all those encounters, I know things would have gone a-lot differently. I will never give up my right to defend myself, ” From My Cold Dead Hands, MOLON LABE “. God Bless America.

  6. Time for debate is long over. Who among us is willing to do what is necessary to signal the rest of the country the time has come? The moment has arrived to do what none of us want to do, or need to do again after returning home, but must be done before are republic is lost forever. And who among us has the skills, training and courage? Make me sick to see how quickly our once great nation is coming undone by these traitors and enemy combatants of state. Our time is short men. GOD be with us for what we must do.

  7. Well, now that they have passed it, how will they enforce it ?
    How would they know who has these guns ?
    Are they going to go door to door and search houses ?
    More likely, they will just sit and wait for one to turn up and then try to make their fines strick. Now if this was a law banning abortions, millions of dollars would be pouring into Deerfield to fund a court case against the law.

  8. Turn in “assault weapons”?…as in weapons of war? So every police force who possesses, trains with, and uses “assault weapons” is waging war on Americans? Why isn’t MSM reporting on the current Civil War?

  9. No help just like NJ but have no fear the NRA is Sending out emails if you sign up now they will send you a bottle opener . Gents we have been sold down the river Trump let us down the NRA let us down Congress and the house let us down. The same dumb m-effers who’s ancestors died in the hands of the Natzi are passing the same laws to disarm us are people real this dumb???

  10. I remember the faces of prominent Oathkeepers in 2014 at Bundy Ranch in various news reports. Many stood boldly with the Bundys during what has since been called the Battle of Bunkerville. I listened to Stewart’s speech concerning thhe shots which almost were fired thee, but didnt.r. Thank God that didn’t transpire. I was very proud of the Bundys and the men and women who stood peacefully, yet bravely and strong. And, I was proud of the men who also stood boldly at the refuge later, and during the trials.

    I wonder though if agents of the State dressed in SWAT gear go house to house with rifles to collect fines ostensibly owed to Deerfield Township, will Oath Keepers of all stripes be willing to stand to defend innocent gun owners against potential brute force tin through enforcement of an unjust ordinance on behalf of those who are committed to the usurpation and ultimate enslavement of the American People??

    The day of testing most assuredly is at hand. Will Americans stand? Or, will we go down in history as the shameful generation who brought down our founders Republic through inaction and cowardice? I Take note, this is no call for the use of violence. I just can’t help but wonder if we will sit idle when men and women are being dragged out of their homes for failure to comply with injustice and tyranny.That day is upon us right now.Kers hope the blue line will not cross that line.

  11. Voyager1 writes ” I just can’t help but wonder if we will sit idle when men and women are being dragged out of their homes for failure to comply with injustice and tyranny.”

    We should be asking ourselves ‘Will I sit idle’?

    1. It truly is a matter of numbers. “I” fully agree with you that we must stand as individualls, yet collectivelyf when the situation calls for it. Necerthrless, we need valiant leaders to initiate an intervention when the situation arises. Seems like so called progressives always have a louder platform snd bolder tactics than we who stand for American values. Sorry for the misspellings in my previoud sleep-deprived comment.

  12. About a year ago, Stewart responded to me telling WGP that we need to wait for them (we know who them is, right?) to start it first. If for no other reason than being proper with history.

    Here’s what he said, “Remember the words that Capt. John Parker spoke at Lexington Green.”

    I strongly suggest that we all go reread those words, but we should also remember why the “Massachusetts Militia” was there in the first place. They were standing in the way of the British marching to Concord to break up a weapons cache. It’s time to “Stand in the Way.” If they fire the first shots, the blood will be on their hands!

    1. “Stewart responded to me telling WGP that we need to wait for them (we know who them is, right?) to start it first. If for no other reason than being proper with history.” Yes, let “them” start it, we just got to be prepared enough to finish it !

  13. 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America
    “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government” – George Washington

  14. Indeed, the verb is war, not molestations.
    Parker ordered “every man to load his piece with powder and ball. Don’t fire unless fired upon; but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here!”

  15. Very simple – Don’t turn a damn thing in. Mayors and governors defy the law with regard to sanctuary city situations and nothing is done. Well then we’ll do the same – don’t like the law, don’t abide by it – simple.
