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
- 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.
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.
