Lawsuit? A criminal case?

He's referring to Easterday v. Deerfield. Nothing happened today, it was just a status. 4b6e5b9be9c226fac404822a3e60d45d.jpg
Stung by the result of McDonald v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 3020 (2010), the City quickly enacted an ordinance that was too clever by half. Recognizing that a complete gun ban would no longer survive Supreme Court review, the City required all gun owners to obtain training that included one hour of live‐range instruction, and then banned all live ranges within City limits. This was not so much a nod to the importance of live‐range training as it was a thumbing of the municipal nose at the Supreme Court.

And really....at this point.....who cares anyways. The assembly is gonna pass laws that make it all a moot point soon enough. That whole case was just a giant waste of money as it turns out.

Judge throws out Deerfield's assault weapons ban

A Lake County Circuit Court judge ruled Friday that the village of Deerfield overstepped its authority last year when it enacted a ban on assault weapons five years after the Illinois legislature declared such regulations the exclusive power of the state.

 

Judge Luis Berrones issued a permanent injunction blocking the village from enforcing its ordinance. In the ruling, Berrones wrote that the plaintiff gun owners have “a clearly ascertainable right to not be subjected to a preempted and unenforceable ordinance” that prohibits possession of assault weapons, imposes financial penalties for keeping them and allows their property to be confiscated.

I hope that the people of Deerfield realize that the city government's virtue signalling wasted a lot of time and taxpayer money

Awesome!  
But what a waste of taxpayer funds.  Especially since they're saying they're willing to fight it.

Sadly I expect the IL legislature to restore these 'regulation' powers to municipalities shortly over and above any additional regulations put on at the state level.

So, pro bono services provided by Perkins Coie. Also known as the conduit for the Clinton campaign's and DNC's payments for the infamous and now-discredited Steele dossier. How did our ritzy North Shore suburbs wind up in bed with these sleazebags?

It puts politicians on notice and sets a precedent and state's law is gonna be struck down as Unconstitutional too.

Won't be surprised that Bloomberg is behind this too.

I bet the town hired a local lawyer (crony of the politicians) who was enriched properly for this.   

 

This is why unconstitutional laws are passed - to enrich crony lawyers.

If they had won, it would not be pro-bono as they'd file for attorneys fee awards.    Cronies must be enriched.

Precedent set in Connecticut says otherwise. As much as I want to believe what you said is true, in Illinois Im not holding my breath.

Wait until one of these cases gets to the Supreme Court.
