Judge throws out Deerfield (IL) assault weapons ban

The Illinois State Rifle Association won a major victory today as Lake County Judge Luis Berrones ruled that the Village of Deerfield does not have the authority to ban semi-automatic firearms and magazines in their community.

A Lake County Circuit Court judge ruled Friday that the village of Deerfield overstepped its authority last year when it enacted a ban on assault weapons, five years after the Illinois legislature declared such regulations the exclusive power of the state.

Judge Luis Berrones issued a permanent injunction blocking the village from enforcing its ordinance.

In the ruling, Berrones wrote the plaintiff gun owners have “a clearly ascertainable right to not be subjected to a preempted and unenforceable ordinance” that prohibits possession of assault weapons, imposes financial penalties for keeping them and allows their property to be confiscated without compensation.

One of the lawsuits was filed by Deerfield gun owner Daniel Easterday, the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF).

A second legal challenge, filed by Deerfield gun owner John William Wombacher III and Guns Save Life, is backed by the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action.

On Friday, the judge held off ruling on one count of the Guns Save Life lawsuit contending the village’s ordinance allowing confiscation of assault weapons represented an unconstitutional seizure of property.

The taxpayers of Deerfield will also be paying the court costs and the legal expense of the ISRA, SAF and NRA/ILA, expected to run into 7 $$$ figures. But they will not get an NRA hat or T-Shirt. Voters may wish to discuss this with their officials at the next election.

"The tide is turning against the NRA" Wishful thinking from Crazy Lerfty at the DUmp.

They don't just spend their days fapping off about electoral politics.

A few current comments from the Lefty Brain Trust.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/126213314

"gun owners kills tens of thousands of ppl in the USA every yr. wonder how many are NRA?"

(How many gun owners are NRA? Or how many ppl killed? Grammar is your friend Lefty,)

(Concealed carry permit holders, that stop thousands of criminals every year, are likely either NRA members or NRA Trained. See the 2013 OBama ordered CDC Study on defensive gun use for details.)

"...and the Parkland survivors. When Mueller and the Dems expose their ties with Putin the NRA will continue to weaken."

(Look! Another one that hasn't gotten the DNC message about dropping "RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA" for 40 years of tax filings.)

Never mind that paid NRA membership is now close to 6 million. When Obama was elected it was barely 4 million.

Annual NRA meeting attendance was over 80,000 last year.

Yeah, the NRA is fading into obscurity any minute now.

Life in that pink cloud bubble must really be warm and fuzzy.

He gone! "Jussie Smollett won't be on final episodes of 'Empire' season"

https://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/tv/ct-ent-jussie-smollett-empire-20190222-story.html

"Executive producers for “Empire” announced Friday that Jussie Smollett, who has been accused of staging a racist and homophobic attack on himself in Chicago, won’t appear on the final two Season 5 episodes of the Fox network series.

While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out,” the statement from “Empire” executive producers read.

We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

I would not bet on his triumphant return for next season.

Trump approval among likely voters hits 52% post SOTU

https://www.drudgereport.com/

DI Lefties trying to find an empty ledge above the 1st floor.

The "Never Trumpers" aren't too happy about it either.

Seems the only people really jazzed about it ... are the people likely to actually vote.

Is it ironic ... or just plain stupid, that Lefty sides with Russia on getting rid of Maduro?

Just plain WOW!! After 2 years of whining about RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA!!!, suddenly they are all side-by-side with Putin on keeping Maduro in office.

Sure they claim it's illegal "regime change" and "all Trump's fault", but reality is almost every Central and South American country wants this dictator gone. Geez, even the Canadian Soi Boi agreed on that.

But I guess lefty never met a dictator they didn't love to pieces. How long before Oliver Stone and Sean Penn go down to make a fawning movie about this poor, bealeagured patriot?

Third Chicago Concealed Carry defense by a woman in two weeks

No wonder Rahm is quitting as mayor, his predictions of concealed carry shootings over parking paces not only aren't happening, people are fighting back against the thugs they catch and release.

Chalk up another win for the Chicago area concealed carry good "guys", or in this case another good woman. Also, another story you won't hear much about in the Chicago media, due to their own agenda. The third woman with a CC permit in two weeks. The score for 2019 to date is; one wannabe criminal thug dead, one wounded and one who just passed the Missouri border and is probably still running.

"Woman With Concealed Carry License Shoots At Would-Be Attacker"

Chicago (CBS) — A man in Hyde Park was in for a surprise when the woman he was trying to rob pulled out a gun and fired.

Just before 6:30 p.m. Saturday near 56th and Dorchester, Chicago police say the woman took out the gun and shot at the man. (That's not far from Obama's house! Lots of police presence too.)

Police say she has a valid concealed carry license.

The suspect drove off in a dark-colored SUV.

https://chicago.cbslocal.com/…/woman-with-concealed-carry-…/

A little more time at the range is highly recommended. But ... that's the third woman in the last two weeks with a carry permit to successfully stop an armed robbery ... that we know of. There are hundreds,maybe thousands of times (according to the Obama requested 2013 CDC Study Figures) when a robbery or other crime is stopped, by the victim being ready to defend themselves. The criminal heads for the hills and easier pickins', without a shot being fired.

So much for the lie about; "They'll just take the gun away from you little lady and use it on you." Like I tell my classes, "They may do that, but the gun should be empty and they'll have to beat you over the head with it and you should fall on a pile of hot brass after you empty it into them".

Like they say; "When seconds count, the police are minutes away".

Another Illinois Concealed Carrier takes out wannabe robbers

'It was not fun': Concealed carry gun owner recounts shooting robber in leg during Waukegan confrontation"

"A 30-year-old Gurnee man, trying to sell some items through an online exchange site, met two buyers in Waukegan on Thursday, and when they tried to rob him, he pulled out a concealed handgun and shot one of them in the leg, according to Waukegan police.

While the Gurnee man did not want to be named, he said in an interview Friday that at one point, two young men had guns pointed at him inside his vehicle after he thought he was meeting a woman to sell an iPhone. His identity was confirmed to the News-Sun by police.

“It was not fun,” he said Friday evening. “This was all over a freaking phone I was trying to sell,” he added, sounding frustrated and describing how one suspect ran from the car with the iPhone X."

That's twice in a week, once on the South Side and again in a northern suburb, when the criminals already had their guns in hand and the concealed carrier still out shot them. According to the gun grabbers, that never happens.

Amazing! The media acknowledged a Concealed Carrier defended themselves.

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-woman-shoots-robber-chicago-20190108-story.html

"A woman with a concealed carry permit shot and killed a teen who tried to rob her at gunpoint on the Far South Side Tuesday morning, according to Chicago police.

The 25-year-old woman was standing on a corner when the teen approached around 5:40 a.m. in the 500 block of West 103rd Street in the Fernwood neighborhood, police said.

When the teen pulled out a gun, the woman grabbed her own and fired one shot, hitting the teen in the neck, police said. The teen ran off but was found a block away and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead."

What surprised me is that they actually bothered to look up if she had a carry permit. She did and she successfully defended herself so this story will sink fast.

It's only been 12 hours so the mother of the dead "wannabe" criminal gangster hasn't shown up yet for her media interviews, to tell us how he was "a good boy" and was "turning his life around" and was "going to go to college", et. al. the list of excuses for dead criminals that picked the wrong woman to try and rob.

Now the cops have confiscated her gun as "evidence", that's just routine. I just hope she has a back up in case his "friends" come calling.

Mueller's not looking for Russkies, he's doing 2020 Oppo Research

It had to be obvious to Mueller and his band of Hillary supporters, that he was never going to find any real evidence of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, beyond some ineffective Facebook ads.

It's not a coincidence that Mueller releases some minor tidbit, about a Trump associate when Trump is doing some high profile thing like the G20 conference. Anything to demean him.

By 2020 no one will remember that it had nothing to do with Trump or the 2016 election, just that some guy ... that was tangentially associated with Trump .... did something bad ... sometime.

A Real Estate Tax fraud from 20 years before he even met Trump? Just one more example of Trump's "poor judgement". Pretty much like Lefty does here on DI; stupid, ill informed, emotionally driven by ignorance.

The result will be taxpayer funded, gift wrapped opposition research in 2019 on every even vaguely questionable relationship Trump may have ever had in business over decades.

Hell, they're flipping out and giving it 24/7 coverage over just the idea that he might have even considered putting up a building in Moscow.

Chicago: "Powerful Dem alderman Burke offices raided by FBI"

Brown paper on all the windows! Nice touch.

Burke, who's wife Anne is on the Illinois Supreme Court and brother just left his seat in the House has been "untouchable" for decades. His wife as a judge has for years and, totally "coincidentally" I'm sure, seen to it that the Inspector General and AG can't touch hubby's businesses.

Going to be interesting to see what finally got him in hot water, how far it goes and whether he tosses anyone else under the bus.
