Illinois AWB

Illinois is on the path to get an AWB. See link for entire article.

Illinois House approves assault weapons ban
https://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/2023/1/6/23541886/assault-weapons-ban-illinois-house-approves

After a lengthy debate that stretched into the early hours of Friday, the House voted 64-43 to pass the measure that would also ban “rapid-fire devices” that turn firearms that fire one shot per trigger pull into fully automatic weapons. It must still clear the Illinois Senate.

“This legislation will most importantly ban the new sale of assault weapons in the state of Illinois. This is what the people of this state have been calling for. And that’s what it will deliver,” Illinois House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch said during debate. “These are weapons that belong on a battlefield, not at parades celebrating our country’s independence or at parks or at schools.”

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has said he would support passage of an assault weapons ban and joined Democrats on the House floor during the entirety of the debate.

Lead sponsor state Rep. Bob Morgan, D-Deerfield, who was at the parade shooting with his family, recounted some of the horrific encounter — the images of a bloodied toddler he saw being dragged away and the sounds of gunfire he heard. Morgan said he had a hard time at 10:14 a.m. on Wednesday, the exact time the shots rang out on six months earlier.

“This is not a unique situation. And I left that day thinking I will do whatever I can, whatever is in my power to make sure, none of us, none of you, none of your communities go through what we went through,” Morgan said at the end of a nearly two-hour debate. “And yet I failed. Because within three days after the Fourth of July, there were more gun deaths throughout the state of Illinois than that day on the Fourth of July in Highland Park. So I failed. I literally have been carrying that on my shoulders to this moment as we stand here right now.”

The Illinois Senate plans to return to session on Sunday, but it’s unclear when lawmakers will vote on the measure. John Patterson, spokesman for Illinois Senate President Don Harmon, said senators are giving the proposal “an extensive review and careful evaluation.”

Outgoing Illinois House Republican Leader Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs, who has been a vocal supporter of an assault weapons ban for years, spoke in support of the measure.

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

Judge grants temporary restraining order against Illinois gun ban for plaintiffs in Effingham County lawsuit
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/judge-grants-temporary-restraining-order-against-illinois-gun-ban-for-plaintiffs-in-effingham-county-lawsuit/ar-AA16zVpt

A judge has granted a temporary restraining order against Illinois' newly-passed assault weapons ban for 866 plaintiffs in an Effingham County lawsuit.

Former Illinois attorney general candidate Thomas DeVore and DeVore Law Office, LLC are representing the plaintiffs, which include Effingham-based Accuracy Firearms LLC, in a lawsuit against the newly passed weapons ban. The judge's ruling affects only the plaintiffs listed in the lawsuit.

According to the judgment from Effingham County Judge Joshua Morrison, the restraining order is effective immediately, with plaintiffs in the lawsuit precluded from enforcement of the ban.

Following its passage in the Illinois legislature, Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the assault weapons ban into law on Jan. 10. It bans the manufacture, sale and possession of dozens of brands and types of rapid-fire rifles and pistols, .50-caliber guns and some attachments.

The law allows gun owners to keep the guns they already have but requires them to register their weapons with the state.

While gun stores in Illinois, including the lawsuit's plaintiff Accuracy Firearms, can ship and sell remaining assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines out of state, store owners said the ban will likely cost them thousands of dollars in sales.

They exempt the 866 plaintiffs for now, but don't worry about the rest of the population?  :shocked:

Is it wrong if I'm glad that all these states are passing AWBs? Maybe it'll give SCOTUS an opportunity to take a case and rule them as unconstitutional.

Unfortunately that's how the game is played in certain cases. Rulings often only apply to the plaintiffs not the entire public at large. Its one way to drag out the case until it reaches a court like SCOTUS or a upper federal circuit court where a ruling could apply to either the entire nation or to that federal court's jurisdiction.

This same thing is what's happening in the brace ban case, the judge ruled only for the plaintiff in that case not everyone at large.

Sadly, this is probably the most 2A friendly SCOTUS that we'll see in our lifetime.
