Chicago suburb Deerfield cannot yet implement an assault weapons ban that the village passed since an Illinois judge has temporarily blocked the ordinance.

The board of the village, located north of Chicago, voted unanimously in April to approve an ordinance banning assault weapons such as the AR-15. An AR-15 was the weapon used in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre situated in the town’s boundaries. The ban also comes in the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida school shooting that left 17 dead.

Lake County Circuit Judge Luis Berrones on Tuesday agreed to issue a temporary restraining order to prevent enforcement of the ordinance, which would have gone into effect Wednesday. The temporary restraining order will be in place until the two lawsuits challenging the ordinance could be heard.

The ordinance would have required Deerfield residents with assault weapons to sell them, hand them over to police or move them out of the village within 60 days of the ordinance going into effect. Exempted from the said ordinance are law enforcement officers and members of the military.

Under the ordinance terms, those found violating it would be fined at least $250 and up to $1,000 for each day the violation occurs.

The village said in a statement that its legal team is reviewing the full written opinion of the Judge while committing to honor the order, and not enforce yet its assault weapons ban ordinance.

The Illinois State Rifle Association, the Second Amend Foundation, and Deerfield resident Daniel Easterday filed one legal challenge opposing the ordinance. Another lawsuit was advanced by John William Wombacher III, a Deerfield resident and Guns Life with the backing of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action

Guns Save Life cheered in a statement the judge’s order halting the ban. They said: “This ruling is a significant victory because it allows law-abiding Deerfield residents to keep commonly owned firearms and magazines in their homes for self-defense while the case proceeds.”

Excuse me!!

Would you stop for a moment?!

O…man…Haven't you thought-one day- about yourself ?

Who has made it?

Have you seen a design which hasn't a designer ?!

Have you seen a wonderful,delicate work without a worker ?!

It's you and the whole universe!..

Who has made them all ?!!

You know who ?.. It's "ALLAH",prise be to him.

Just think for a moment.

How are you going to be after death ?!

Can you believe that this exact system of the universe and all of these great creation will end in in nothing…just after death!

Have you thought, for a second, How to save your soul from Allah's punishment?!

Haven't you thought about what is the right religion?!

Read … and think deeply before you answer..

It is religion of Islam.

It is the religion that Mohammad-peace upon him- the last prophet, had been sent by.

It is the religion that the right Bible- which is not distorted-has preached.

Just have a look at The Bible of (Bernaba).

Don't be emstional.

Be rational and judge..

Just look..listen…compare..and then judge and say your word.

the Deerfield Board thinks that they can simply vote away our inalienable rights. the un-american FILTH should be rounded-up and hanged along with their gang-banging negro brethren.
