Illinois town votes to ban assault weapons, fine violators up to $1,000 per day

CBS News – The mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has once again ignited the public debate around assault weapons and large capacity magazines. And while no sweeping gun control laws have been enacted at the federal level, one town in Illinois is taking matters into its own hands.

The Chicago suburb of Deerfield, Illinois voted on Monday to ban the possession, sale, and manufacture of assault weapons and large capacity magazines to “increase the public’s sense of safety.” What’s more, CBS Chicago reports, anyone refusing to give up their banned firearm will be fined $1,000 a day until the weapon is handed over or removed from the town’s limits.

The ordinance states, “The possession, manufacture and sale of assault weapons in the Village of Deerfield is not reasonably necessary to protect an individual’s right of self-defense or the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia.”

DISCLAIMER: These are the Webmaster’s thoughts, NOT necessarily a stance of the NC GOP District 11 for as far as I the NC GOP District 11 has NO stated stance on the subject, and are only your webmaster’s view on the above.

The 2nd amendment states: 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. And therefore protects the right of the people and not the Militia as the People form the Militia.

The 2nd amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Supreme Law of the United States, trumps ALL laws, regulations and rules on arms in all 50 United States, including North Carolina.

The word infringed is defined as meaning: to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of.

The insane and criminal do not obey laws therefore, any of the laws concerning arms have no effect on them but, only on a person obeying the unconstitutional laws and denies them their 2nd amendment rights.

The Second Amendment protects the rights of all citizens of the United States and its territories, including North Carolina. And puts limits on the powers of the Federal and State Governments, in the United States. No Government can violate a citizens rights protected by or guaranteed to them under the U.S. Constitution.

The people have the Natural rights keep and bear arms, to self preservation, to self protection, and ones right to life, a citizens 2nd amendment rights must be restored.

Any and ALL State laws concerning ARMS are infringements and are ILLEGAL under the U.S. Constitution and are therefore Null and Void as they are Unconstitutional.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Is Destroying Its Unsold Assault-Style Rifles

Huffington Post – Dick’s Sporting Goods won’t be returning their unsold assault-style rifles to manufacturers. Instead, the company says it’s chosen to destroy all of them.

Dick’s announced in February ― following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida ― that it would stop selling assault-style rifles and high-capacity ammunition magazines in all of its Field & Stream stores, where these items had been sold by the large sports retailer.

The company also announced that it would no longer sell guns to people under the age of 21 at any of its stores.

A company spokeswoman told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last week that the retailer was “in the process” of destroying the unsold inventory of rifles, which include AR-15s and other military-style semi-automatic weapons, at its four distribution centers nationwide.

“We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations,” the representative said, adding that weapon parts would be sent to a salvage company to be recycled.

Tax Day 2018: Relief for North Carolinians

NC Speaker Tim Moore – Raleigh, N.C. – As families and businesses across the country complete the final touches on their returns for Tax Day 2018, the annual deadline highlights billions of dollars of relief provided to North Carolinians this decade.

The state General Assembly secured a lower income tax rate, corporate tax rate, sales tax rate, and a substantially higher zero-tax bracket for residents since 2011.

State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) detailed North Carolina’s surge in economic competitiveness following the tax relief in The Hill, The Washington Times, and Forbes, in just the last year.

“Families being able to save or spend their money instead of having it taxed away helps North Carolina’s overall economy,” Moore wrote.

“Top-tier wage and job growth, tax relief and lower unemployment are a winning combination for North Carolina.”

North Carolina’s historic tax relief will continue to take effect through 2019. Here are more tax facts and highlights of how the relief benefits North Carolina.

Rep. Meadows’ Statement on Inspector General Report Regarding Andrew McCabe

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Mark Meadows released the following statement on the Department of Justice’s Inspector General report regarding the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe:

“This initial report from Inspector General Horowitz confirms the simple fact that the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wasn’t just defensible—it was absolutely warranted. McCabe didn’t lie to his FBI superiors once, twice, or even three times—he lied four times, exposing sensitive information about ongoing investigations and failing to be truthful about his role in leaking to the press.  

 But it’s important that we don’t lose sight of the bigger picture here. Andrew McCabe was an undeniably critical figure in multiple investigations leading up to the 2016 Presidential election, including the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s unlawful private email server and the alleged “Russian collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign. These revelations on McCabe raise serious concerns about the decisions of FBI and DOJ leadership in both 2016 and 2017. If a central figure like McCabe was engaged in this kind of behavior, then it raises the question: what else? What other questionable activity did FBI and DOJ leadership potentially engage in during the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign?

Given the troubling information we already know, and given the Department of Justice’s apparent intention to stonewall every genuine attempt at holding federal law enforcement accountable, it is clear that the Department is both unwilling and unable to appropriately investigate themselves. Therefore, our path forward should be clear: it is time for an independent, third party investigator to look at the facts, pursue the evidence, and present what happened. Attorney General Sessions should nominate a special counsel to find the truth for the American public about what occurred—both with the Clinton investigation and the Trump campaign investigation—at the highest levels of our Justice Department.”
