The Great Gun Grab in Deerfield, Illinois

I’ll start this off with a compliment, which is a tough thing to do when discussing America’s infernal gun-grabbers. The Village Board of Trustees in Deerfield, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, has done what most “common sense” gun law folks probably secretly wish they could do. They recently voted to enact an “assault weapons and large capacity magazine” ban that includes confiscation. But, I’ll concede this compliment: at least they have courage in their convictions and are laying their proverbial cards on the table. It’s sort of a Bernie Sanders-flavored honesty.
