As Twitchy reported in April, the Chicago suburb of Deerfield, Ill., voted to “ban the possession, sale, and manufacture of assault weapons and large capacity magazines,” declaring that assault weapons are “not reasonably necessary to protect an individual’s right of self-defense or the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia.”
The list of banned weapons is extensive and specific (and of course includes the AR-15), and NRATV’s Cam Edwards on Saturday reminded Deerfield residents that they have two weeks left to hand over their weapons or remove them from the town’s limits.
In two weeks, gun owners in Deerfield, IL are supposed to turn in their semi-automatic rifles, destroy them, or get them out of town if they don't want to be criminals. But "nobody wants to take your guns", right? https://t.co/NOd9rzuWai

No one wants to take your guns? This is the second post Twitchy’s run today about gun confiscation (Vox is pretty high on the idea too).
No, they are not coming for our guns…? https://t.co/P6E5b6fZld

"Nobody's trying to take your guns," they say.
"Well. . . except this one. And these here. And that one there. Oh and those over there. Is that all of them? Did we forget any?"

Not only are they coming for your guns, they are creating criminals out of law abiding citizens. Government tyranny on display https://t.co/t1rxjlYCCh

Stupid liberals, they want to take guns from the people least likely to commit crimes. https://t.co/vQOCZyJ7eY

This is just plain wrong. You ARE NOT a criminal because they think you could potentially be. https://t.co/d3SXVmUjAO

We know the lefts real agenda and it is not common sense gun laws or AR bans… it's getting them out of the hands of Americans https://t.co/ySZXwUfa8d

Yeah, so — this is nuts and hopefully the legislators are sued over their gross violation of their citizens' Constitutional rights.
This is why 2A supporters are against supposed "common sense" laws; because they only make sense to tyrants. https://t.co/DZ1h1gqxYw

Pretty sure some have openly admitted to wanting to take our guns away. Liberals don't get it. Criminals don't give a damn about the laws. They will still have assault rifles and the rest of us will be less safe than we already are. https://t.co/uWSEboVHig

A local law that is unconstitutional does not need to be followed. I would tell them to kick rocks. https://t.co/ZgaNYlD3We

Don’t do it. Break this law. It is a violation of the Constitution and is therefore null. https://t.co/P8wwyXuvgj

It is a shame all of their guns tragically fell into a lake. https://t.co/gqJR6Jrn9V

Any over/under on the compliance rate? I say 14% to set the line. Anyone want some of that action? https://t.co/7kLA1bG9ME
