John Boch: Hearing on DeerField 'Assault Weapons' Ban

Judge's Ruling on Restraining Order Expected by 4 PM

When failed federal circuit court appeals made clear that Illinois must accept concealed carry, lawmakers added a provision to the Firearm Concealed Carry Act to give municipalities a 10-day window to pass anti-gun legislation. The village of Deerfield passed an "assault weapons" safe storage ordinance, requiring they be in locked containers, disassembled or have a trigger lock when not in use. Five years later, the Deerfield Board of Trustees voted to amendment the storage law to ban "assault weapons" in the village altogether. In response, the NRA and gun rights group Guns Save Life went to court today, seeking a temporary restraining order on the ordinance set to take effect tomorrow. Guns Save Life president John Boch reports the judge will release his decision by 4 PM CDT and they are optimistic. It's good to have the NRA in our corner. Regardless of today's decision, the lawsuit will proceed. John urges gun owners to comply with the law until litigation runs its course. Nearby ranges have offered to store AR-15s and other semi-auto rifles if needed. Originally aired on Cam & Co 06/12/18.
