    Illinois: Cook County and Chicago Deal Serious Blows to Gun Rights in Wake of Conceal

    Illinois: Cook County and Chicago Deal Serious Blows to Gun Rights in Wake of Concealed Carry Legislation

    Posted on July 18, 2013

    Yesterday, the Cook County Board of Commissioners and the Chicago City Council met in order to consider ordinances that would ban so-called “assault weapons.” During the Chicago City Council meeting, council members took the opportunity to demean gun owners and the NRA, even suggesting that those residents who oppose the new gun regulations can just leave the city. However, Chicago’s proposed ordinance included language saying “Nothing in this section shall be construed to regulate any firearm or ammunition to the extent that such regulation be preempted.” After losing over $2 million in attorney’s fees from legal battles with the NRA, ISRA and SAF, Chicago has officially blinked. While this single line is a victory, the rest of the ordinance continues to add more types of firearms onto the list of banned firearms and demand they be removed or disposed of within sixty days of the effective date even if they were owned lawfully.

    Following such outright slander of those who enjoy exercising their Second Amendment rights, Cook County proceeded to deny Second Amendment rights for anyone under the age of 21 by banning the sale of long guns to those who are 18-20 years old. In the same meeting, they also restricted the number of rounds that can be carried in magazines to ten and enacted a new storage ordinance. These egregious infringements of fundamental rights seek only to disarm law-abiding residents and hinder their ability to protect themselves. Cook County and Chicago believe they know what is best for their citizens by disarming them. Yet they continue to see some of the most horrendous and violent crime in the United States in their streets.


    Any township within Cook County will be affected by these ordinances unless the local governments act by tomorrow and opt out. Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated when more information becomes available.

    No matter how bad crime is in Chicago the powers that be are going to push their agenda no matter how detrimental it is to the people that were elected to protect and serve! It boggles my mind that the people will re elect those azzhats!

    IS there no state preemption banning local governments from enacting such ordinances?

    Some states have preemption, some do not.

    He also said he would change America; change you can believe in! Unfortunately, he didn't say anything about its demise, he had in mind.

    But now the cat's out of the bag, and we won't go down without a fight!

    There was plenty of time and evidence exposing Obama's Agenda during his first campaign, long before he was elected the first time. Then there was his second campaign , after four years of exposure in office!! But "NOW" the cat's out of the bag??? NOW?? Are you kidding? 1% of the people make things happen, 9% of the people watch things happen, and 90% of the people ask, what happened? No wonder there's NO HOPE. Good luck with the fight anyway.

    Chicago is about to go the same way as Detroit. The dependent class, criminal class (including politicians) and the violent drug gangs keep getting larger. The productive people and businesses are leaving. The progressive rule in Chicago will destroy that city just as surely as it will eventually destroy the U.S. And I can see no way out for either Chicago or this country. Our major cities, ruled by progressives, will fall like dominoes, one after another. And as civilization collapses, what better way to insure as many casualties as possible, than to disarm the helpless and leave them at the mercy of the barbarians.
