Gun owners need to wake up and act before it’s too late. 

Because if Democrats get their way this new law will be in every state in the nation. 

One of our nation’s toughest gun restriction laws just passed its biggest legal hurdle.

Democrats hate the Second Amendment

Democrats have been on a warpath against natural rights enshrined in the Bill of Rights, especially the Second Amendment.

Many politicians in Washington, D.C. would love nothing more than to have working class Americans’ right to self-defense stripped away. 

As a matter of fact, they probably dream of taking away Americans’ firearms and throwing them in jail if they don’t cooperate. 

But they know that their best opportunity to destroy the Second Amendment comes from the states. 

There will always be resistance on the federal level, but there are states where a conservative politician is as hard to find as a common sense Democrat.

And that’s why Democrats are investing so much time, energy, and money into putting some of the strictest gun laws this nation has ever seen into the states. 

We all know states like California have strict gun laws. 

If you’re caught with a firearm in California, or break some obscure law hidden in the books, they will lock you in a cell and throw away the key. 

Illinois has been trying to out-do California with their new insane gun restriction laws. 

Illinois’ gun ban stands

Earlier this year, Illinois Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker signed into law one of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, clearly restricting citizens’ Second Amendment rights. 

But that’s the point. 

This law was developed to test the legal boundaries of the court’s appetite to protect the Second Amendment. 

According to the law, so-called “assault weapons”, assault weapon attachments, .50-caliber rifles and .50-caliber rounds are banned from being purchased, possessed, transferred, or imported within Illinois.

There are a few limited exceptions for citizens who are police and military – because nothing encapsulates a free country filled with free people like only allowing the ruling class elites’ enforcers to possess firearms. 

Many gun rights groups are fighting the law in court, and rightfully so, as it is a clear violation of both state and federal Constitutional protections. 

Unfortunately for gun owners, the Illinois Supreme Court shot down possibly the best chance to rid the state of the unconstitutional law with a 4-3 ruling.

“First, we hold that the exemptions neither deny equal protection nor constitute special legislation because plaintiffs have not sufficiently alleged that they are similarly situated to and treated differently from the exempt classes,” Illinois Justice Elizabeth Rochford wrote. “Second, plaintiffs expressly waived in the circuit court any independent claim that the restrictions impermissibly infringe the second amendment. Third, plaintiffs’ failure to cross-appeal is a jurisdictional bar to renewing their three-readings claim.”

As you can imagine, Democrats are rejoicing. 

So not only is the Illinois Supreme Court allowing an unconstitutional law, and one of the strictest gun restriction laws in America, to stay in effect, but they are also trying to block gun rights groups from appealing the law to the Supreme Court. 

Only time will tell if this abuse of power by the court will stand, but one can only hope that the U.S. Supreme Court takes a stand and strikes down this unconstitutional gun ban.

Will the Supreme Court stand up for the right to bear arms?
