Sanctuary gun counties in Illinois


Ranger

Recommended Posts

I could be wrong, but I think after the last election where resolutions were on the ballot, the overall effort/volume has decreased so I would not expect a lot of updates. Maybe closer to the next election when more resolutions might be presented to voter. Most recent maps I am aware of are in the post above. Edited by InterestedBystander

All of those maps seem to only go up to about August of last year.

 

Is there a regularly updated map, as well as a list of the counties and other municipalities, anywhere?

 

If not, maybe a sticky should be put up with that in it, in the original posting, for quick and complete reference.

I am not keeping track of municipalities as county Sheriffs and County Attorney hold more power than that of a city or township.

 

Anytime I hear about a county passing a sanctuary county measure I will update the map.

 

Has been since august or so since I have heard anything.

 

Post hear if you have an update, once I verify then I will update the map.

I do hope, in all sincerity, that everyone realizes that there is NO SUCH THING as a firearm sanctuary county.

 

The ATF does not care, and will arrest you.

 

The ISP does not care, and will arrest you.

 

the States Attorney, who is an elected employee of the state, may or may not care, but then the ATF still doesn't.

It is and has always been a political statement proclaiming the will of The People.

The various statements by states attorneys, the referenda, and the resolutions county boards, cited in this thread have dealt with state firearm laws potentially passed by the Illinois General Assembly.

The ATF would not have any jurisdiction in the laws in question, unless the state law and federal law overlap.

I seem to recall a simlilar thing when the law banning carry was struck and the state ordered to enact carry. The Madison county prosecutor said he would not prosecute anyone found carrying until such time as the carry law was written. Thereby giving constitutional carry for a period of time in Madison county. Im sure other counties announced the same at the time.

 

Not sure if there were any arrests or not to see if they stuck to their word.
