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.”

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.
