Illinois sheriffs refuse to enforce semi-auto gun laws passed by Democrat General Assembly

Australian police are the opposite wanting to disarm the entire population

(Natural News) A growing group of sheriffs in Illinois are vowing not to enforce provisions of a new gun control law passed by the Democrat-controlled General Assembly and signed by Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker this week.

The statute, which is being heavily criticized as anti-Second Amendment and potentially unconstitutional, not only calls for banning new sales of so-called “assault weapons,” but while it allows current owners to keep the weapons they have, they must register them with the Illinois State Police, and that is where the sheriffs have drawn a line.

According to The Epoch Times:

The Democrat-controlled state legislature imposed a ban on a variety of semiautomatic guns, magazines, and devices that allow a weapon to fire more quickly on Monday.

The Protecting Illinois Communities Act passed the Illinois Senate on Monday night by a vote margin of 34–20. The bill makes it illegal for Illinois residents to purchase, transfer, or manufacture “assault weapons” and extended magazines. According to the bill’s language, an “assault weapon” is a semiautomatic rifle that can accept a detachable magazine and has a pistol grip or thumbhole stock, a flash suppressor, a grenade launcher, a barrel shroud, or other characteristics.

“I’m signing this legislation tonight so it can take immediate effect,” Pritzker said in a press conference, local media reported on Tuesday.

In a letter posted to Facebook, Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen wrote that he plans to follow his “morals, beliefs, and obligations concerning protecting the rights” of the citizens of his county.

These types of laws put law enforcement officers and prosecutors in a very precarious box, with us having to decide to not enforce laws that were passed by government bodies,” McMillen wrote. “But, as your Greene County Sheriff, I cannot sit back and let laws strip Greene County citizens of their constitutional rights, and not take a stance supporting the citizens against a government that wants to trample on their rights.”

Meanwhile, Iroquois County Sheriff Clinton J. Perzee noted in a letter of his own, “The right to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people. I, among many others, believe that HB 5471 is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”

His letter followed a Dec. 13 vote by the Iroquois County Board implementing a measure that forbids the “use of county funds, appropriation, personnel, or property” to enforce the law, The Epoch Times noted further.

Perzee said that neither he nor his office will be checking to ensure that “lawful gun owners register their weapons with the State, nor will we be arresting or housing law abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with non-compliance of this Act.”

Clinton County Sheriff Dan Travous, Macoupin County Sheriff Shawn Kahl, and Monroe County Sheriff Neal Rohlfing all made similar statements and commitments to their residents.

Also, Madison County Sheriff Jeff Connor, in conjunction with the county’s State’s Attorney Tom Haine, noted in a joint statement that they expect the law will face legal challenges and “trust that this legislative overreach will not stand.”

“In the meantime, we remain focused on reducing violent crime,” their letter reads. “Therefore, pending further direction by the courts, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office will not expend its limited resources to check whether otherwise law-abiding gun owners have registered their weapons with the State, nor will the Madison County Sheriff’s Office be arresting or housing otherwise law-abiding individuals solely due to non-compliance with [the law].”

Edwards County Sheriff Darby Boewe also took to social media with an almost identical vow not to enforce the law.

“Part of my duties that I accepted upon being sworn into office was to protect the rights provided to all of us, in the Constitution,” Boewe wrote on Facebook. “One of those rights enumerated is the right of the people to KEEP and BEAR ARMS provided under the 2nd Amendment. The right to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people.”

Logan County, Kankakee County, Piatt County, LaSalle County, Knox County, Pike County, Putnam County, St. Clair County, Union County, Wabash County, Woodford County, Williamson County, Wayne County, Shelby County, Ogle County, Jo Daviess County, and more posted similar letters.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  2. Meanwhile, in Australia, the cops ARE the Nazis.

    Little Johnny always wanted to do something honorable, respectable and useful with his life… instead, he joined Dictator Dan’s private Gestapo army and now spends his time harassing law-abiding citizens, beating up little old ladies and children and randomly cavity-searching random pedestrians in the local park.

    Now little Johnny keeps a framed portrait of Hans Gruber on his bedside table. His Mummy and Daddy are SO proud.

  3. “Charles cannot do anything to fix this situation as no Constitutionaly appointed Governor General or legitimate Parliament exists to offer Him a Royal Styles and Entitlement to become Head of State, upholder of The Faith and Separation of Powers. This being where all of our Common Law an property Rights are held”.

    “King” Charles, is obligated under the “Victoria” letters patent as heir and successor of the constitutional contract with The Constitution (the people of Australia). He doesn’t need the approval of the current treasonous saboteurs to simply appoint his own Governor General under the 1901 constitution.

  4. It is a proven fact that none of the States Government’s or the treasonous criminal collective calling itself a Federal government are legitimate or have any standing at law.

    There exists no Governors possessing Letters Patent or a Crown appointment.
    This was brought to Elizabeth’s attention, but she failed her duty and responsibility to correct this treason.
    Charles cannot do anything to fix this situation as no Constitutionaly appointed Governor General or legitimate Parliament exists to offer Him a Royal Styles and Entitlement to become Head of State, upholder of The Faith and Separation of Powers. This being where all of our Common Law an property Rights are held.

    These political parties only claim to legitimacy, is that they are registered with the United States Government’s securities Commission as “Political Subdivisions” of the
    USA.
    Therefore it would follow, that Australia, having no lawful Constitution, and these bogus governments being “political subdivisions” of the USA we the people can claim full protection of the American Constitution, especially the Second Amendment.
    These Marxist/ Jesuit dogs here need to face American courts for interfering in our Right to Keep and Bare arms. Under the Second Amendment. They can’t have it both ways.

  6. WE already have our own legal protection by virtue of the Commonwealth Constitution but, if you ever hear a comment that Australia needs a Bill of Rights, or that we don’t have one, then you can be sure you are hearing Jesuit-speak, and those Jesuit lies make perfect sense when you read what our Bill of Rights actually says:
    English Bill Of Rights (1688) – An Act declareing the Rights and Liberties of the Subject and Setleing the Succession of the Crowne.
    Disarming Protestants, &c.
    By causing severall good Subjects being Protestants to be disarmed at the same time when Papists were both Armed and Imployed contrary to Law.
    Subjects’ Arms.
    That the Subjects which are Protestants may have Arms for their Defence suitable to their Conditions and as allowed by Law.

  7. Unfortunately the Australian population have been brainwashed over the last 20 years into believing you are better off being disarmed and helpless against the real criminals their own government and are willingly throwing themselves off the cliff.
