Deerfield Illinois gun turn ins
« on: April 09, 2018, 09:51:09 PM »
Good evening,

I heard of Deerfield Illinois residents having 90 days to turn over their firearms or face a $1,000.00/day fine if they donít comply. How can this be legal? Can we contact you all if our city/state were to do something like this? If similar actions start happening across the nation what do we do?


Sincerely,
Jacob

JacobSmith54,

The new ordinance prohibits the possession, sale and manufacturing of certain types of assault weapons and large capacity magazines within the village, according to the ordinance. It exempts retired police officers from the ban. Violations carry a fine of between $250 and $1,000 per day. In the ordinance, the definition of an assault weapon includes, among others, semiautomatic rifles that have a fixed magazine with a capacity to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition; shotguns with a revolving cylinder; and semiautomatic pistols and rifles that can accept large-capacity magazines and possess one of a list of other features. Among the dozens of specific models cited are the AR-15, AK-47 and Uzi, according to the ordinance.
