Fines up to $1,000 a day for residents of Deerfield Illinois who do not comply with the new ‘Assault Weapon’ and ‘High Capacity Magazine’ ban.
High capacity magazines are defined as having a capacity over 10 rounds. Assault weapons are defined as semi-auto rifles and handguns that can take these magazines. AR’s, AK’s, SKS’s, etc. Fairly typical AWB langauge.
Deerfield, IL – The Deerfield Village Board ordered a ban on “assault weapons” on Monday night, and said they planned to implement a hefty fine on residents who refuse to comply.
The board unanimously voted to ban certain semi-automatic firearms, which they considered to be “assault weapons,” WLS reported.
The ordinance included semiautomatic rifles with fixed magazines capable of holding over 10 rounds of ammunition, and shotguns with revolving cylinders, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Rifles capable of accepting “large-capacity magazines” and a multitude of other features were also included in the ban, according to the paper.
The ban also hit some semiautomatic pistols, which primarily seemed to be targeting pistol variants of rifles and submachine guns. The ban covered pistols with off-hand gripping areas, barrel shrouds, or stocks.
“Large-capacity magazines” were defined as magazines that hold more than 10 bullets.
The amendment to the village’s gun ordinance also eradicated citizens’ rights to possess the magazines, WLS reported.
But of course no one is coming for your guns.
They just become a $365,000/year expense on June 13th in Deerfield.
