The NRA is going to war over Second Amendment rights against a town which will soon implement a requirement that residents turn over all their semi-automatic weapons.
Deerfield, Illinois, town board voted unanimously back in April to confiscate weapons. Should a citizen refuse, the town will impose a fine of a grand every day.
It’s yet another non compos mentis move by radical leftists who think that disarming law-abiding citizens will end gun crime.
Of course, we need look no further than to Chicago, Illinois — where gun regs are among the most onerous in the nation — easily the top of the list of metro areas for violent gun crimes.
When guns are outlawed only outlaws have guns.

An Illinois town will soon implement an ordinance directing residents to hand in their semi-automatic firearms or face heavy fines.
The Deerfield Village Board voted unanimously in April in favor of an amendment to its gun ordinance to restrict some semi-automatic firearms.
Residents could face fines of up to $1,000 per day if they do not comply with the ordinance.
Current or retired law enforcement personnel are exempt from the law.
Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson explained on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday that the town wants to ban firearms such as the AR-15 rifle and other high-capacity magazines.
