USA – -( It is time for an offensive full court press. We need to start chipping away at all the local and state laws that make it impossible to exercise our rights. Despite their claims, tyrants are not scared enough of the current armed populous.
If this effort gains traction the same chorus of statists will be paraded out. “You don’t need that kind of gun” or “you don’t need any guns in this building,” they say. Last I checked, what I own and where I take it is none of anyone’s business.

The real reason gun grabbers never let up is because they know they can’t assert total control over citizens, so long as the populous remains armed.

It’s no contradiction to them to Monday-morning-quarterback police and tell them they shouldn’t have shot a particular person, and in the same breath claim that only the police should be armed. The police are agents of the government. They can be controlled, so they think.
The Chicago suburb of Deerfield, Illinois is a glaring example of such a power grab. This week they passed an extensive gun ban. The ordinance’s preliminary language cites Deerfield’s “power to regulate for the protection of the public health, safety, morals, and Welfare.” This is the usual tact employed by statists. They all hold the belief that it is appropriate to trample on your rights when they cite “health, safety and welfare.“ They don’t bat an eye at the fact that such actions completely deny the principles of individual rights. Individual rights do not belong to the collective and they should not yield to the collective.
Statists often claim that the Second Amendment is rooted in racism. This is a completely false narrative and anyone who propagates that lie doesn't know their history and the chronology of it. Just the opposite is true of course. Gun control laws have everything to do with slavery.
Slavery and Jim Crow laws were based on the belief that the minority individual was merely property, a thing to be possessed and controlled. Most segregation laws and ordinances were premised on “morals, safety, and welfare.” Segregation was a backdoor way to limit freedom and control public opinion. The bastardization of the Second Amendment is no different.

The Supreme Court has failed us.

They are supposed to protect our civil rights. They are not supposed to allow ordinances like Deerfield’s to stand. Yet, all around the country, bureaucrats at every level [and whole states, like NJ] have moved to restrict and bastardize the right “to keep and bear arms.” If only Deerfield was a singular example…
The District of Columbia has refused to follow court orders to loosen their gun laws over and over again. Virginia’s former governor, Terry McAuliffe barred guns from all executive offices because he couldn’t pass anti-gun laws. His democrat successor has broadened the reach of that order. The People’s Republic of California continues its crusade against gun owners in every possible way – from copper bullets-only laws to assault weapons bans. Even the great state of Texas has created a de facto concealed carry ban by giving private businesses and property owners the ability to ban guns on their premises. Such a law has made it impossible for a Texan to know if he’ll have to go back home to secure his firearm or if he’ll be allowed to enter a business or church. Many states are may-issue, meaning that no one has a right to carry unless some bureaucrat decides they do on a case-by-case basis. I could go on for a thousand pages detailing the asinine list of infringements we’ve permitted.

All of this leads me to question why the powers that be ever attempt such infringements?

Let me answer this by way of analogy. Remember when you were a kid and you were dating? Some girl’s dads would make an obviously idle threat, “have her home by 10, or else.” Other dads would make their intentions a little more clear, “have her home by 10 or I’m going to get in my truck with the devil and we’re going to find you.” The latter was a man you knew was capable of harming you. You knew he took his duty to protect his daughter seriously. You might’ve stolen a kiss from that girl, but you sure as hell didn’t push the limit and she was home by 9:45.
Gun owners have become an idle threat with an increasingly undefined limit. Government officials don’t take gun owners seriously anymore than we took the “have her home, or else” dad. I’m not suggesting we start a civil war, yet. However, I am asserting that we take a much more aggressive stand to protect our rights.
A Second Amendment that can be reduced to only certain guns in certain places is no civil right at all. Agents of the government at every level are wildly out of control. I’m so tired of it in my hometown that I voted for a democrat for the first time in my life because she was the only person opposing the Republican incumbent. The incumbent might as well have been a democrat with his feckless spending and an ever-expanding massive local government.
Do you really think there isn’t a power reason that bureaucrats on all sides have passed laws barring the possession of firearms in their offices? They don’t want to face the reality of our power. They do everything they can to reduce our power and increase theirs.
The NRA is not focused on local issues. It is long passed time we go on the offensive and exercise our rights wherever and whenever possible. Work to repeal all of it, not just some of it. Organize your fellow like-minded citizens. If you need some help with how to organize I highly recommend you contact Virginia Citizen’s Defense League. In the alternative, I’m always available at

Lawsuit Challenges Gun Ban 
In Chicago Suburb Of Deerfield

BELLEVUE, WA – -( Second Amendment Foundation filed a lawsuit against the Chicago suburb of Deerfield, Illinois seeking an injunction against enforcement of the ban on so-called “assault weapons” and “large capacity magazines” adopted by the Village Board of Trustees earlier last week.
Joining the Second Amendment Foundation in the legal challenge is the Illinois State Rifle Association and a private citizen, Daniel Easterday, who resides in the village and is a gun owner. The lawsuit was filed in the 19th Judicial Circuit Court in Lake County. Plaintiffs are represented by Glen Ellyn attorney David Sigale.
The lawsuit challenges the village ban under a 2013 amended state statute that declared “the regulation of the possession or ownership of assault weapons are exclusive powers and functions of this State. Any ordinance or regulation, or portion of that ordinance or regulation, that purports to regulate the possession or ownership of assault weapons in a manner that is inconsistent with this Act, shall be invalid…”
“We moved swiftly to challenge this gun ban because it flies in the face of state law,” said Second Amendment Foundation founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “While the village is trying to disguise this as an amendment to an existing ordinance, it is, in fact, a new law that entirely bans possession of legally-owned semi-auto firearms, with no exception for guns previously owned, or any provision for self-defense.
“The new ordinance also provides for confiscation and destruction of such firearms and their original capacity magazines,” he added. “What is particularly outrageous about this new law is that it levies fines of up to $1,000 a day against anyone who refuses to turn in their gun and magazines or move them out of the village by the time the ordinance takes effect in June.”

“This certainly puts the lie to claims by anti-gunners that ‘nobody is coming to take your guns.’”

Second Amendment Foundation
The Second Amendment Foundation ( is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.
