Illinois enacted a sweeping ‘assault weapons’ ban on January 10, 2023. Gov JB Pritzker (D) signed it into law thinking their state can defend it in court. Hint: banning the most “commonly used” rifles in the United States makes liberals deliriously happy, but it hopefully it won’t fly.
For a long time now, I and many other leaders in the Illinois General Assembly have prioritized getting the most dangerous weapons off our state’s streets. Today, honoring the commitment we made, we passed one of the strongest assault weapons bans in the nation, one I will be proud to sign…No Illinoisan, no matter their zip code, should have to go through life fearing their loved one could be the next in an ever-growing list of victims of mass shootings.” Pritzker press release
The House voted 68-41 to approve the ban Tuesday afternoon, according to CBS Chicago. The bill passed 34-20 in the Illinois Senate on Monday.
Illinois residents who own guns that are now restricted under the law all be able to keep them, but will be required to register the firearms with the state police, according to the legislation. Magazines owned before the new capacity requirements take effect can also be kept, but the now illegal magazines and firearms must be used on private property. Daily Caller
The continual liberal talking point that AR-style weapons are “dangerous” is primarily based on “misinformation” and lack of knowledge about any firearm. All weapons, from a kitchen knife to a gun are dangerous in the hands of mentally unstable people. Unless you put people in a padded cell away from everyone, no action on their part will stop mass shootings. Or mass stabbings. A ban on “scary military-looking weapons” is the exact wrong way to counter the violence.
