This video discusses the illegal gun ban the City of Naperville enacted in August of 2022. Robert Bevis discusses his battles with Naperville in the federal courts, as well as his battles with Illinois. We will take it to the Supreme Court and not stop until this law is changed.

Law Weapons is fighting for our RIGHTS, and the following will provide you with the latest information on Naperville's so-called Assault Weapon Sales Ban and the Illinois Assault Weapons Ban.
Law Weapons filed two complaints with the Northern District of Illinois Federal Court, asking for a Temporary Restraining Order and a Preliminary Injunction to stop the enforcement of these unconstitutional bans until the case could be heard on its merits. Unfortunately, Federal Judge Kendall denied this request. Her reasoning fails spectacularly, and she has ignored the Supreme Court precedent – a precedent that all competent, law-abiding Judges are directed by the Supreme Court to follow. In previous cases, Judge Kendall has applied her anti-gun hate to other rulings, and eventually, they have been overturned on appeal.
Accordingly, we sought a Temporary Restraining Order and a Preliminary Injunction in the 7th District Appellate Court. The Appellate Court, unfortunately, and without any opinion provided, has denied the request. The case is still in progress.
As an analogy, the 2nd District Appellate Court issued a Ruling overturning a District court's ruling in favor of the plaintiffs in New Jersey's concealed carry law. They did so without issuing an opinion exactly like what has now happened in the 7th District with our case. The plaintiffs, in that case, responded by issuing an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court. While the Supreme Court did not grant their Appeal, which is their custom with interlocutory cases, the Supreme Court put the 2nd District Appellate Court on notice to apply the correct legal precedent and to act quickly. This signaled to the 2nd District Appellate Court the displeasure of the Supreme Court.
In light of the irreparable harm that Law Weapons is suffering with this law in effect, Law Weapons has now filed for emergency relief in the United States Supreme Court, the highest court in the land.

Judge Kendall has trampled on our and your rights and disobeyed Supreme Court precedent. This Ban deprives us of exercising our 2nd amendment rights and does nothing to address the gun violence that is a result of failures by soft-on-crime Politicians. There are 20 to 40 million AR15s owned by law-abiding Americans; contrary to political and media hyperbole, these guns have numerous lawful uses including self-defense, hunting, competitions, and more, and the bans only affect them and do not affect any of the deranged criminals who have used them in crimes.
Law Weapons has been committed to standing up for everybody's rights in Illinois, fighting for those who cannot, and preserving our Second Amendment Rights that everyone should enjoy. The city of Naperville and the State of Illinois have caused irreparable harm to Law Weapons as a business and a family. But we won't give up; we will continue to fight and will prevail.
We thank everyone that has supported us through this battle and hope you will continue to support us throughout this war against tyranny.

The Governor of Illinois has signed into law HB5471, at 8pm on 01/10/2023 a so called “Assault Weapons Ban.”
What does the bill do?
• State-wide registry of all owned "Assault Weapons"
• Broadens the definition of "Assault Weapon."
• Ban on sales of "Assault Weapons" and 10+ round magazines.
• Firearm Restraining Orders extend from the current 6 to 12 months.
• Immediately effective on the Governor's signature regarding sales and manufacture.
What this means for Law Weapons customers?
• No new sales of banned firearms can take place.
• No new sales of rifle magazines holding over 10 rounds.
• No new sales of pistol magazines holding over 15 rounds.
• LWS will complete sales with background checks started by 01/10/2023.
• Firearm Restraining Orders extended from 6 months to 12 months.
• Magazines owned by the effective date are legal to keep but restrictions on carry and transportation start in 90 days.
• Banned firearms owned before the effective date are legal to keep but registered with the state in 300 days.
Law Weapons is taking legal action against this severely unconstitutional gun ban HB 5471 which tramples on the rights of law-abiding citizens in Illinois. This fight will be in both Federal and State court.
Because of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn. vs Bruen the landscape of Second amendment litigation has changed dramatically for the right to keep and bear arms.
The Law Weapons Action Plan
State Court Actions
Law Weapons and family as plaintiffs are working with lawyers to bring a lawsuit in the Illinois state court immediately. The state court action will address the unlawful manner of which the general assembly continues to pass laws by playing with procedure. Turning an insurance law into a gun grab at the last second is unacceptable. These violations of procedure must be addressed by our State Courts.
• Not complying with the constitutional requirement of being read three times in each chamber.
• Single Subject issues.
• Privacy invasions under Section 6 of Illinois’ Bill of Rights.
Federal Court Actions
Law Weapons and family as plaintiffs are working with lawyers to bring a lawsuit in the Federal Court immediately as well. The Federal action will address The new standard set forth by the Court in New York requires that once the text of the Second Amendment covers the activity it is protected and then the burden is on the State to prove the regulation/law complies with the history and tradition of what this country understood to be the right to keep and bear arms circa 1791
Funds have been raised for the State case, but we need help on the Federal Case, Second Amendment issues of HB5741. Please consider donating to Law Weapons to help pay the expenses needed to stay in the fight.

THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL GUN GRAB CONTINUES
The prohibition on new sales of the affected firearms imposes on the right to acquire “commonly used” firearms.
The prohibition on possession, transfer, sale of magazines over 10 rounds imposes on the right to acquire, possess modern firearms “in common use” for lawful purposes such as self-defense.
The ban on private sales or transfers of affected firearms impacts the right to acquire.
The bill restricts individuals’ ability to travel limiting non-residents to staying for not more than 24 hours with their firearm(s). This impacts the ability to seek proficiency, the right to self-defense and to travel freely.
The ban on sales of parts inhibits any right to maintain or repair a firearm to keep it in working order, thus the right to acquire, keep and for self-defense.
Requiring the registration of existing guns prevent new acquisitions, people from bringing their gun into the state with them, in inhibiting the ability to keep and use for self-defense. As well as an invasion of privacy.
