Less than 24 hours before it was to go into effect, an Illinois judge has granted a temporary restraining order blocking the village of Deerfield's "assault weapons" ban. The 2013 safe storage law was amended five years later to prohibit AR-15s and other popular sporting rifles, as well as magazines holding more than ten rounds. The misdemeanor offense would have been punishable by confiscation and a fine of up to $1,000 a day. Guns Save Life executive director John Boch says the judge savaged the village's arguments when granting the TRO. Deerfield has a tough legal road ahead despite their costs being paid by the Brady Campaign. The judge told city attorneys they were creating a new law and there was no language to support a magazine ban. John thanks the NRA, and gives a shout-out to a second case filed by the Illinois State Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation. Originally aired on Cam & Co 06/13/18.
