The gun-grabbers in this town are in for a real fight.
The Board of the village of Deerfield, Illinois voted unanimously in favor of an amendment to its gun ordinance to restrict ‘assault weapons’ back in April.
The law is about to take effect and those that don’t willingly surrender certain semi-automatic firearms such as AR-15s could face fines of up to $1,000 per day as well as have their guns confiscated. Law enforcement officers, current or retired, are exempt from the ordinance.
Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson explained on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday that the town wants to ban firearms such as the AR-15 rifle and other high-capacity magazines.
“It’s a direct violation of state law, not to mention the Second Amendment,” Pearson said, noting that the state’s Concealed Carry Act passed of[sic] 2013 preempted local ordinances from such bans.
He said that the town has decided not to answer to the federal or state government regarding the ban.
“Right now we’re looking for a temporary restraining order to prevent this from happening,” Pearson said, adding that the ban goes into effect June 8.

Pearson said that the new law is a ‘slippery slope’ that allows for the confiscation of weapons violating both the Second Amendment as well as state law.
Pearson said that ‘everything is at stake’ and that, ‘We will fight this all the way to the Supreme Court without question.

Not submitting to federal law under this administration isn’t a good idea.
If they’re so keen on violating state law, mayhap anyone walking onto private property to confiscate guns should be charged with trespassing.
Go ahead gun-grabbers — let’s see where this goes.
Wouldn’t that be one heckuva Supreme Court ruling, though?
Maybe it should go all the way up to the highest court in the land.

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.
Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.
That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.
There’s a men’s version…
And a women’s version, too…
Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.
