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.
