ILLINOIS GUN OWNERS REFUSE TO COMPLY WITH NEW ‘ASSAULT WEAPONS’ BAN Illinois Governor JB Pritzker By Grant Haun | January 20, 2024 Illinois residents are refusing to comply with a new mandate requiring them to register their purported “assault weapons” with law enforcement. Illinois Democratic Governor JB Pritzker endorsed a bill last year implementing a ban on various semiautomatic weapons but permitting citizens who already owned the affected firearms to keep them as long as they complete a form with the Illinois State Police. The agency nevertheless reports that only 1% of those with firearm owners identification cards registered by the deadline. Gun store owners estimated there are millions of affected weapons still held by state residents who have not submitted to the law, according to reports from local media. Roughly three-quarters of police officials in Illinois have said they will not enforce the new firearms ban. “Our oath, first and foremost, is to uphold the state and national constitutions, and this law is contrary to that,” Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Bullard said in a statement last year after the bill was signed. “I have put out a notice to the people of Jefferson County that if they are being harassed by agents of government who are violating any civil liberties, that they should contact me so I can be aware of it and develop a strategy on how to deal with it.” Gun store owners estimated there are millions of affected weapons still held by residents who have not submitted to the law. Amid the mass refusal to comply, members of the Illinois State Senate approved rules this week under which firearm owners who fail to register their “assault weapons” could face misdemeanor charges, as well as felony charges for repeated offenses. Multiple state and federal courts moved to uphold the ban on purported “assault weapons” last year, culminating in the Supreme Court declining to block the new law before the deadline to register affected firearms at the start of this year. Pritzker announced last year that he was “proud to sign” the legislation. “For too long people have lived in fear of being gunned down in schools, while worshipping, at celebrations, or in their own front yards,” he remarked. “This legislation will stop the spread of assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, and switches and make our state a safer place for all.” Gun Pulse Gazette Gun Pulse is a brand-new conservative publication devoted entirely to the Second Amendment, from political battles over the right to keep and bear arms, to opinion and commentary pieces, to equipment reviews, and much more. |  |  © Gun Pulse Gazette, 881 W Baxter Dr, Suite 100, South Jordan, UT 84095
