Another 'Assault Weapon' Ban Case
HOW  (Is it really) ODD THAT MASSACRES MOSTLY HAPPEN IN "GUN-FREE ZONES"!


IL: 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to hear 'Assault Weapon' Ban Case


The city of Highland Park, notorious for its anti-second amendment laws, passed an ordinance that requires residents to turn in, modify or remove the banned items from the city.   Ordinance 136(pdf) deals with "Assault Weapons".  The ordinance includes very broad boilerplate language.   Some claim that the ordinance was lifted from the City of Chicago.

The 7th Circuit federal court of appeals will hear a case against a local ban on some common rifles, handguns, shotguns, and magazines. The city of Highland Park, notorious for its anti-second amendment laws, passed an ordinance that requires residents to turn in, modify or remove the banned items from the city. Ordinance 136(pdf) deals with "Assault Weapons". The ordinance includes very broad boilerplate language. Some claim that the ordinance was lifted from the City of Chicago.
The definitions are broad and cover most semi-automatic rifles, and a fair number of pistols and shotguns.   Highland Park, Michigan has a very low crime rate, so it is hard to justify the ban as having any practical effect, except to anger second amendment supporters and to make a symbolic statement. 

I found particularly amusing the fact that the ban seems to include nearly all airsoft guns.  The ordinance includes a ban on all "Large Capacity Magazines" and has a very broad definition of what a firearm is.   From the ordinance:

(F) "Firearm" means any device, by whatever name known, which is
designed to expel a projectile or projectiles by the action of an explosion, expansion of gas or escape of gas, excluding however:
(1)
Any pneumatic gun, spring gun or B-B gun which expels a
single globular projectile not exceeding .18 inches in diameter;

As most airsoft guns use expansion of gas, or escape of gas to propel projectiles  of greater than .18 inches in diameter, and have magazine capacities of more than 10 rounds, they seem to be included.   No one seems to have been prosecuted under the ordinance to date.

Comment: Sounds like Michigan needs to pass state pre-emption, like we have in Pennsylvania, which stops local communities from having firearm laws different than the state laws.

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”

Sounds like a bunch of people will have to turn in their rectums.

Highland Park IL is a hotbed of limousine liberals; ignore 'em.

Where I lived once (Prospect Heights), they tried to pass a crap reg like this. The town constitution said that new regs could be passed with a single council vote, but could only be ratified by a second vote after a couple months' time to discuss the thing. So the anti-gun reg passed, 4-1.

At the second council meeting, several citizens added some pithy comments about the stupid idea. Then the police chief stood up and said that the police wouldn't enforce the law, if passed. Exact quote: "My officers aren't going to be knocking on doors to check up on people like we were the Gestapo."

Storms of applause followed, and the measure was voted down 5-0.

Highland Park has no such citizens or police chief, even though it's only a few miles from Prospect Heights.

I wonder what the Highland Park police are armed with.
