Deerfield, Illinois, is the second Chicago suburb to pass an assault weapons ban by local ordinance. While retired police are exempt, anyone possessing a banned gun in the village’s jurisdiction after June 13, 2018, will be fined $1,000 per day.
The village of Deerfield, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago, recently banned the possession, sale and manufacture of assault weapons and large capacity magazines by public ordinance.
|Let me summarize U.S. v. Miller for emphasis:
1) reasonable relationship to the . . . efficiency of a well regulated militia
2) any part of the ordinary military equpiment
3) could contribute to the common defense
4) IT MUST BE INTERPRETED AND APPLIED WITH THAT END IN VIEW.
