The Chicago suburb of Deerfield, Illinois, is giving residents 60 days to get rid of their “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines and empowering the police chief to confiscate them from those who refuse to give them up, Breitbart reports.
Section 15-91 of the ordinance states, “The Chief of Police or his or her designee shall have the power to confiscate any assault weapon of any person charged with a violation under this article. The Chief of Police shall cause to be destroyed each Assault Weapon or Large Capacity Magazine surrendered or confiscated pursuant to this Article.”
The ordinance warns that stock “assault weapons” are “customizable to become even more dangerous weapons of mass casualties and destruction.”
Blunt Truth for the ignorant fools who believe the propaganda and are going after firearms:
There is no such thing as an, “Assault Weapon” and these ignorant fools who keep spouting the propaganda to scare the sheep into submission, need to be fought on every level.
The weapon is the TOOL that is picked for use by the criminal (whether the tool be a gun, car, screwdriver, knife, etc.). The ASSAULT is the act of the criminal doing the damage with chosen tool. AFF News
Deerfield, Illinois, had a law in effect that the residents could have these firearms but had a very strict storage “rule” in place for them. No more, now they are illegal and must be turned over to LEO or face fines of $250-$1000 a DAY!
Chicago Tribune stated, 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.
Deerfield’s original “assault weapons” ban, including storage requirements. was instituted in 2013. The new ban is being put in place because of instances wherein “assault weapons” have been used criminally in Parkland, Florida, Sutherland Springs, Texas, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Orlando Florida. The ordinance warns that stock “assault weapons” are “customizable to become even more dangerous weapons of mass casualties and destruction.”
Assault weapon is a made up term. Put a extended mag in a hunting rifle and there’d be no difference. So the next take away would be semi-auto rifles, then handguns.
AR does not stand for assault rifle, it stands for Armalite Rifle the company that created the first AR. he verb Assault describes an action, I was assaulted, he is assaulting someone, she used a gun to assault him. Assault is the action taken. Johnny used a knife to assault Jimmy, this does not make the knife an assault knife. Johnny used a big knife, a blue knife, etc… Big, blue are adjectives, they describe the knife, assault cannot describe something because it is an action word, a verb. The anti-gun movement used the verb “assault” simply to scare people, to make people perceive the weapon (gun) as its own entity capable of action in its own right, making it appear almost alive; therefore an “assault weapon” appears as though it could almost act on its own, that is a scary thought indeed, but it can’t. Words do matter, and using them correctly matters even more when it comes to protecting the Rights of an individual. There is no “assault” weapon, only weapons used in the act of assaulting someone, in the act of an assault. When my grandmother was punishing me she wasn’t using an assault spoon, she was using a wooden one, think about it.
Stop allowing the manipulation of words by politicians to manipulate our fear so they can create monsters that don’t exist, i.e. “assault weapons” because the weapon is not what is doing the assaulting, the human is. Be careful what rights you are willing to give away after they manipulate you with fear, because next it will be, you can’t use those, they are “assault words,” Oh, wait, it’s “hate words…” too late…
The Democrats and cowardly sheep argue that the AR platform is an “assault weapon” (though we have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, that no such thing exists) and they claim they are customizable which makes them even “deadlier” and “mass casualty weapons that kill entire nations!”.
Time for Blunt Truth and education:
- A folding or telescoping stock (a prominent feature of the Army’s current M4 rifle) has no bearing on the firearms lethality.
- Pistol grips has no bearing on the lethality of a the firearm.
- Flash Suppressors A flash suppressor, also known as a flash guard, flash eliminator, flash hider, or flash cone, is a device attached to the muzzle of a rifle that reduces its visible signature while firing by cooling or dispersing the burning gases that exit the muzzle, a phenomenon typical of carbine-length firearms.
- MAGAZINE simply holds rounds in it, AR’s equal 1 trigger squeeze = 1 round down range. No such thing as an assault magazine or machine gun magazine!
The AR-15 is a .22-caliber centerfire. AR-15 is some kind of horrifically powerful weapon is absurd. In its most common chambering, the 5.56 NATO, the AR-15 is actually underpowered.
The AR platform uses space-age materials, such as forged aluminum and plastic, which make it lightweight, durable, and weather-resistant. Today’s AR-15 is reliable, ergonomic, and user-friendly. American Thinker
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Making up new terms to describe a rifle so that you can force your agenda, is AGAINST our Bill of RIGHTS and how the hell people sit silent while companies and democrats find new ways to strip your freedoms, is absolutely baffling.
