Premier Palaszczuk, Jackie Trad and Warren Entsch do not give a damn about the Far North; let it burn!

These politicians refuse to partition North Queensland from Coronavirus

Far North Queensland Coronavirus tally stands at 19 confirmed, imported cases in Cairns and Hinterland

Gun shops in Qld and WA closed

 

These politicians don’t care if North Queenslanders live or die from Coronavirus. Top to bottom: Deputy Premier Jackie Trad; Federal Liberal Member for Leichardt(Cairns) Warren Entsch and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. While the Far North has only 19 confirmed cases of Coronavirus, now is the time to shut the gate.

These disingenuous politicians do not give a damn about North Queensland. In spite of urgent calls from the medical profession, local government, residents and politicians, Comrade Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Comrade Deputy Premier Jackie Trad refuse to excise North Queensland from the Coronavirus hotspots of south east Queensland.

Member for Traeger, Robbie Katter has demanded the State Labor Government cut off North Queensland at Marlborough, Central Queensland before any more infected travelers from the south afflict an as yet  largely healthy population.

Close the gun shops

Instead a terrified State Government responded by ordering the closure of all gun shops.

Northern gun dealers have reported record ammo sales and an unusual spike in gun sales.

But the horse has bolted. Gunshops are on their last stocks of ammunition and if the Labor Party thought hoarding dunny rolls was awful, they had better remember there are more than 600,000 registered gun owners in Queensland and at least another100,000 unregistered.

Queensland gun dealers have reported record sales because the public have been terrified by the controlled media about further lock-downs and martial law. Governments would do well to recognise there are more than 600,000 registered gun owners in the state and around 100,000 unregistered owners. The hoax has been imposed upon the west by a wiley China whose Coronavirus ‘epidemic’ might not be all that it seems according to independent reports and videos getting out of the communist state.

Rolling out the army to keep tabs on those quarantined with Coronavirus has now branched into the military manning road blocks on all entrances into Cape York Peninsula, west to Kowanyama and south at the Gulf Developmental Road turnoff at 40 mile scrub, about 45 minutes south of Mt Garnet.

All of these roadblocks will be situated in Bob Katter’s electorate of Kennedy.

Has anyone heard if the federal government has sought permission from the Governor General to declare martial law?

Some politicians are more caring about North Queensland than the urbane Labor Party of the south east.

North Queensland Federal Members Michele Landry, George Christensen, Phillip Thompson and Senator Matt Canavan have backed Bob and Robbie Katter’s demand to separate the northern part of the state before there are any more infections.

 

These worthwhile Members have much more on their minds than the next state election which the Labor Party is predicted to lose.

National Australia Bank dislikes firearms and closes account of licensed gun dealer

from Beaudesert Times

A BOONAH business owner is furious after being notified that the National Australia Bank no longer wants to handle her account.

Smiffy’s Guns & Ammo, which says it has been trading in Boonah for several years without incident, received a letter from the bank dated January 29 informing them that the bank had chosen to cease providing them with banking services as a result of reviews into “the risks associated with providing banking services to customers involved in certain industries”.

NAB was contacted but would not go into any detail about what the risks might be.

Nab and Grab doesn’t want your business if you own a gun. What about the hundreds of millions of dollars the NAB allegedly launders every year for the world-wide child sex-trafficking trade? Has it closed any of their accounts?

“We don’t discuss the details of individual customers’ banking,” a NAB spokesperson said.

“When making decisions about the banking services we provide, NAB considers a number of factors including legislative requirements, our risk appetite and the materiality of environmental, social and governance issues.”

Owner Anita Smith said she was “gobsmacked” by the decision, which has forced her to find an inconvenient workaround to make certain deposits into the business account and created more headaches she does not need as a local business owner.

Ms Smith said she only opened the letter last month.

“I saw it when I was going through my monthly statements,” she said.

“They had given me 45 days until my account would be closed.”

Ms Smith said she was so shocked by the move, she posted a comment on Facebook which gained traction when it was shared to the Aussie Reviews page.

“It did get a reaction and last time I checked it had been shared 359 times,” she said.

Smiffy’s Guns & Ammo chose NAB about 18 months ago as they were one of the few banks with a physical branch in Boonah, and Ms Smith said they had never had any issues with the bank or its staff before.

“We can’t use a local bank because of what business we are, yet we can legally operate in the town just as they can. It’s ridiculous,” she said.

She said she shouldn’t have to resort to workarounds to make business deposits and was not at all happy with her highly regulated and secure business being deemed a banking risk when that clearly wasn’t true.

“I am making a formal complaint to NAB about this. It’s totally unacceptable,” she said.

Shooters Union Australia president Graham Park slammed NAB’s decision, calling it abhorrent virtue-signalling which directly harmed rural communities, made it harder for farmers to protect their crops, and penalised people taking part in a popular, safe, and highly regulated sport.

“There are literally millions of law-abiding firearms users in Australia, all of whom have undergone extensive background checks to get their licences,” he said.

“Gun dealers are subject to even further checks, security requirements, and safety standards -there is no risk whatsoever in providing gun shops with merchant banking facilities.”

Editor: Cairnsnews recommends closing your account with the Nab and Grab if you own a firearm or you don’t like human trafficking.

Virginia gun rights rally stops Marxist Governor in his tracks

Civil disobedience took on a new meaning in Virginia, US yesterday, as many thousands of gun rights supporters took to the street in defiance of the Virginia Governor’s edict to drastically tighten up gun laws and ban armed civilians from demonstrating in the streets.

https://www.rt.com/usa/478741-virginia-gun-rights-rally/

Police stood on helplessly as Second Amendment rights proponents filled the streets, where numerous armed militia members carrying semi-automatic military rifles goaded Virginia law enforcement to “bring it on.”

Naturally Australian gun owners would not ever have the balls to stage a similar show of force after being dumbed-down by their collective soft-cock shooting bodies, the party duopoly and the left media which have rolled over with each and every tightening of gun laws since the false flag Port Arthur massacre in 1996.

Cairnsnews stands shoulder to shoulder with our American brothers on the inalienable right of freemen to carry and bear arms.

US gun massacres sponsored by Deep State and fake news

Witnesses in the El Paso shooting reported seeing 3 or 4 masked shooters wearing all-black and one reported killed by police

It has many similarities to alleged New Zealand shooting

El Paso Shooter’s Father Was a Therapist Tied to John of God

by Alexandra Bruce

The two mass-shooters from this past weekend are being grossly misrepresented by the Fake News to push an anti-Trump agenda, in tones that can only be described as incitement to civil war. The press has lied to us so much over the past few years that there is no reason to believe anything they’re reporting about these mass-shooting events, especially with so many details coming out that contradict the scripted narrative that “white supremacy” is the greatest threat to the US.

Dozens of Antifa members following and followed by 24-year-old Ohio shooter, Connor Betts are mass-deleting their social media accounts as I write this but I got a look at some before Betts’ Twitter account was taken down. Betts clearly expressed that he was a Satanist who hated Trump, hated ICE, supported (Marxist) Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and he specified his gender pronouns as “he/him”. Last June, he tweeted, “I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding”. Nowhere to be seen was anything about white supremacy. One of his shooting victims was his own sister. How Betts is being spun as a “white supremacist” and being blamed on Trump by the Democrats and the Fake News truly beggars belief.

Witnesses in the El Paso shooting reported seeing 3 or 4 masked shooters wearing all-black. Besides the one suspect apprehended, a second suspect was reported killed by the police to the DC Examiner’s Anna Giaritelli. Despite this, the Fake News quickly propagated a classic Lone Nut narrative about 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, while officials refuse to release any of the numerous security camera videos.

As seen in this video, Crusius’ Instagram account reveals him to be a Far-Left Progressive who is “Pro-LGBTQ+, Pro-immigrants, Universal healthcare for all, Free college, Agnostic, and
🚫🚫RACISTS!🚫🚫”

The “manifesto” published to 8Chan and attributed to Crusius has NOT been linked to any online account belonging to him and the authorities have wavered as to its authenticity. But before any confirmation was made, the Fake News reported that the manifesto and its anti-immigrant, anti-race-mixing views were his, even though manifesto’s ideology is 180º opposed to that on Crusius’ Instagram account. The MyLife account of his mother, Lori Lynn Crusius is still up and she self-reports to be Hispanic-American.

The creator of this video, my new favorite YouTube channel, Where We Go 1 We Go All (WWG1WGA), also shows us video of Crusius’ father, Bryan Crusius, a recovering addict and a psychologist who specializes in child psychology.

WWG1WGA gets into many other interesting details about these mass shootings and Bill Cooper’s 1991 prediction that these events would be deliberately staged in order to make the public beg to repeal the Second Amendment.

Muslims are victims today but usually are the perpetrators

‘They that take the sword shall perish by the sword’

Speaking following reports of multiple shootings at two Mosques in New Zealand earlier today, Senator Fraser Anning has responded with strong condemnation.

“I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community, and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman,” he said.

Anning says the Muslims usually are the perpetrators against Christians which of course the Australian media would never run

“However, whilst this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified, what it highlights is the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence.”

“As always, left-wing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today’s shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views but this is all clichéd nonsense.”

“The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”

“Let us be clear, while Muslims may have been the victims today, usually they are the
perpetrators. World-wide, Muslims are killing people in the name of their faith on an
industrial scale.”

“The entire religion of Islam is simply the violent ideology of a sixth century despot
masquerading as a religious leader, which justifies endless war against anyone who
opposes it and calls for the murder of unbelievers and apostates.”

“The truth is that Islam is not like any other faith. It is the religious equivalent of fascism. And just because the followers of this savage belief were not the killers in this instance, does not make them blameless.”

“As we read in Matthew 26:52, ‘all they that take the sword, shall perish by the sword’ and those who follow a violent religion that calls on them to murder us, cannot be too surprised when someone takes them at their word and responds in kind,” Senator Anning concluded.

 

Armed ANTIFA member at middle school shot and killed by cop

Not mentioned in mainstream US media

www.shtfplan.com

You didn’t see this one in the mainstream media because the man at the center of this report was not wearing a MAGA(Make America Great Again -Trump) hat, but we’re going to show it to you anyway.

According to reports, Charles Landeros, a man linked to the ANTIFA-related “Community Armed Self Defense” group, was involved in a custody dispute at Cascade Middle School in Eugene, Oregon. When police showed up to escort the man off campus, law enforcement body cam videos show he went completely nuts and attempted to evade them.

Disturbing footage:

As officers became more aggressive in forcing him out of the school, Landeros reaches for a concealed handgun (visible for a short moment in his right hand, as body cam video below shows).

The situation immediately goes from bad to worse for Landeros, as police reach for their own weapons and fire back.

Landeros was shot and killed in the doorway area of the school.

According to The Daily Emerald, Landeros led a student protest at Oregon University in 2017 and was a member of left-leaning activists groups.

About an hour before the shooting Landeros reportedly posted a threatening comment on Facebook:

About an hour before the shooting, Perlow said, someone tipped the police department that a Facebook account with the name “Charlie Landeros” had commented “Death to all pigs” in a comment section of the post. The police department’s social media manager attempted to locate the comment but both it and the “Charlie Landeros” Facebook account had been deactivated or deleted.

It’s not clear if Landeros was one of the members of ANTIFA groups preparing for armed confrontation as noted previously:

FBI closes Las Vegas massacre investigation with a dodgy 3 page report

by Alex Bruce

The FBI announced ‘case closed’ this past Tuesday on the October 2017 Las Vegas shooting, which left 58 people dead and over 800 injured. They produced a 3-page report that did not identify a motive or establish any forensic connection between the alleged weapons and any of the victims. Indeed, there has been no forensic proof presented by either the Las Vegas police or the FBI that the alleged killer Stephen Paddock was, in fact the killer. (identical modus operandi to Port Arthur)

Stephen Paddock “tried to make people happy, he tried to make people care and I  don’t know what happened to him,” friend Lisa Crawford (pic) told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“I have read them over and over and over again,” Crawford said of the emails. “I’ve even looked at some photos online of, I guess, him and his girlfriend. You know, I was even trying to look into his eyes to see if I saw something that wasn’t normal, you know. No, I didn’t see anything.”

Noticeably missing from the report was any discussion of alleged killer Stephen Paddock’s chest wound or any evidence that the window in room 35-135 was broken before or during the attack.

Over 100 FBI agents were brought in from around the country to produce this 3-page report, that was even less detailed than the report produced by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, which wrapped up its own investigation last August. Special Agent Aaron Rouse in charge of the Las Vegas Division of the FBI made a televised statement laden with comforting neurolinguistic programming phrases intended to reassure listeners but peppered with strange slips.

YouTuber John E. Hoover, whose channel has been dedicated solely to this historic case takes Rouse to task for the many questions that remain unanswered, such as the three helicopters seen on FlightRadar24 flying overhead of the attacks, not accounted for and not belonging to either the LVMPD or the two known services that fly out of the nearby airport. Hoover asks whether the time has come for a Congressional inquiry.

US citizens to cop gun magazine confiscations

Magazine confiscation starting in New Jersey. Similar events coming soon to a town near you. Queensland Labor Government starting with ammunition restrictions in 2019

(Natural News) A New Jersey law that makes it a felony to possess a gun magazine capable of holding over 10 rounds of ammunition is now active. This wildly unconstitutional law instantly criminalizes hundreds of thousands of New Jersey citizens who legally acquired normal capacity firearms magazines — which include 17-round pistol magazines and 30-round rifle magazines — as tools of self-defense against the very same violent criminals that are protected by the Democrats who passed the gun magazine ban.

Now, the New Jersey State Police have told Breitbart News they won’t rule out “house-to-house enforcement” of the new magazine ban, meaning they plan to conduct house-to-house arrests and gun magazine confiscations. These Nazi-style anti-gun operations will, of course, be carried out at gunpoint, further underscoring the entire purpose of the Second Amendment and the need for citizens to arm themselves with 30-round magazines to defend against government tyranny.

Australian governments want to take your guns under the pretext of the Port Arthur massacre scam

“Breitbart News contacted New Jersey State Police on Monday to ask how they planned to enforce the newly enacted ban,” reports Breitbart.com. “The NJ State Police refused to rule out house-to-house checks. Rather, they responded: ‘We do not discuss enforcement strategies.’”

The very reason citizens need 30-round magazines is because the government wants to use coercion and the threat of violence to take away their legally-acquired firearms and magazines. If citizens surrender 30-round magazines, the next step will be New Jersey banning all magazines, followed by the banning of all semi-automatic firearms. Almost overnight, citizens of New Jersey will find themselves living under an authoritarian regime of pure tyranny and lawlessness… with no means to defend themselves against the state, which will then have a monopoly on effective firearms.

This is a repeat of Nazi Germany, which disarmed the Jews before mass murdering three million of them. It’s so much easier to murder people, after all, when the government disarms them first. And anyone going along with the disarmament is signing their own death warrant.

The purpose of the magazine ban is to make sure citizens can’t shoot back when the authoritarian government comes to take ALL their guns

The entire purpose of the gun magazine ban, of course, is to make sure that innocent citizens are unable to shoot back when the government sends gun confiscation teams on door-to-door raids, gunning down citizens and taking their firearms by force. Anyone who knows history will immediately realize that New Jersey is walking down the path of Stalinist Russia or Hitler’s Germany, weaponizing the power of corrupt government to disarm the very people that government will later target for mass arrests and mass murder.

Have no illusions: The aim of all Leftists in government is the establish an authoritarian government regime that holds a monopoly over all firepower, ruling over disarmed citizens who are taxed to death, silenced by the tech giants and criminalized for seeking to defend their own nation against tyranny. This will be combined with open borders policies that flood the nation with violent criminal illegal aliens who will all be granted absolute legal immunity from their crimes, even while American citizens are arrested and imprisoned for merely exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Do the community a service-give your kids a gun for Christmas

Precious Police Commissioner like the Police Union president Ian Leavers hate guns; only police should be allowed to own one Ian says

Queensland’s police chief says a billboard suggesting people give each other guns for Christmas is abhorrent and should be taken down.

The billboard at Logan, south of Brisbane, features a gun wrapped in shiny Christmas paper, two images of Australia in the crosshairs, and asks: What’s under your tree this year?

Our kids are getting a gun each for Christmas – are yours? Commissioner Ian Stewart wants to ban free speech. Its time readers!

Police Commissioner Ian Stewart says there’s nothing illegal about the gun shop’s advertising, but it does not reflect what Australia stands for.

“I would like to see the billboard taken down. People who use firearms for their sport or work know where to go to purchase guns and I don’t think we need that type of advertising,” he has told ABC radio.

“The message that sends to me and to most people in the community would be quite abhorrent and against everything that’s really good about Australia.”

The billboard is for the same gun shop that erected another giant ad earlier this year, featuring a line of bullets, scaled in size, with the tag line: “Size does matter.”

US agrees to ‘Full Implementation’ of United Nations gun control pact

Has Australia and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop also agreed to sign us up?

Posted on July 8, 2018

Free Thought Project – by Rachel Blevins

While the United States is typically set apart from other countries when it comes to gun laws, a recent conference with the United Nations has raised major red flags, as the U.S. agreed to enact “full implementation” of an international agreement on gun control that will violate Americans’ constitutional rights by adding their personal information to a global database.

The Third Review Conference (RevCon) of the United Nations’ Program of Action (PoA) on Small Arms and Light Weapons was held in New York last week with a 2018 agreement, which states that its purpose is to serve as “a renewed commitment to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects.”

A strong advocate for private gun ownership and the removal of gun registration is federal MP Bob Katter at a pistol range.

“We, the States participating in the third United Nations Conference to review progress made in the implementation of the Program of Action to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects, convened at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 18 to 29 June 2018 to review progress made in implementation and identify priorities for strengthened implementation, reaffirm our commitment to the full and effective implementation of all of the provisions of the Program of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with a view to ending the human suffering caused by the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons.”

The agreement states that it will act as an “international instrument to enable states to identify and trace, in a timely and reliable manner,” light arms and small weapons, while “bearing in mind the different situations, capacities, and priorities of States and regions.” All the while, it will be tracking “progress made in the implementation of the International Tracing Instrument; note the challenges to the implementation of the Instrument, whether continuing, recent or emerging.”

The conflict and post-conflict situations addressed by the agreement include the need for “disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programs and community violence reduction programs,” along with international instruments, such as, “regular inventories, surplus disposal, including through destruction, and the implementation of appropriate measures when losses are detected.”

The agreement also listed management and security measures that would include “marking, record-keeping and, as appropriate, tracing by law enforcement authorities, for illicit small arms and light weapons that are found, seized, or recovered in conflict and post-conflict situations.” 

In order to implement the agreement on a national level, the Program of Action lists a series of requirements for each government to follow:

  1. To establish or strengthen national laws, regulations and administrative procedures in support of the full and effective implementation of the Program of Action.
  2. To strengthen coordinated national approaches for the implementation of the Program of Action, including, as appropriate, the establishment or designation of national coordination agencies or bodies involving relevant government agencies, including those responsible for law enforcement, border control and export and import licensing.
  3. To promote the full participation and representation of women in mechanisms relating to the implementation of the Program of Actionand to encourage strong cooperation with civil society, parliamentarians, industry and the private sector.
  4. To establish or designate a national point of contact to act as a liaison between States on matters relating to the implementation of the Program of Action, and to share and update this information regularly, and to provide the point of contact with the necessary means to carry out its role.
  5. To encourage the development and implementation of national action plans or other national policies in support of the implementation of the Program of Action by making better use of existing information to improve the measurement of progress and to coordinate the development and implementation of such plans or policies, as appropriate, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, including those from civil society and industry, with those relevant to target 16.4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to the relevant United Nations resolution on women, disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control.
  6. To significantly reduce the illicit flows of small arms and light weapons, as appropriate, through illicit weapons recovery and voluntary surrender programs.

Americans who are reading the agreement may be thinking that in order to fully implement it in the United States, it would require a full repeal of the Second Amendment—but this Program of Action appears to be the overreaching plan that has already been proposed, in part, in individual laws introduced on national and local levels in the U.S.

Media coverage and calls for stricter gun control on the local level are having a real effect as multiple cities pass bans on “assault rifles.” Residents in Deerfield, Illinois, were forced to turn in all guns that qualify as assault weapons last month, or face fines of $1,000 a day if they did not comply.

The city council in Boulder, Colorado, has followed suit by unanimously passing a ban on the sale and possession of assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, giving residents until July 15 to comply. Massachusetts and New Jersey have also passed statewide bans on bump stocks, and police were shocked to find that only a few people complied by turning in the newly illegal accessories.

On the national level, when gun control legislation was introduced in Congress last year, it came in the form of the Fix NICS Act, which was later rebranded as the STOP School Violence Act and signed into law in March after it was quietly included in the 2018 Omnibus Appropriations bill. The legislation amends the agencies that have control over the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which determines whether Americans are allowed to own guns.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, the changes to the NICS system—which received support from Democrats, Republicans, and even the NRA—put pressure on federal agencies and states to report as many names as possible, “making it only a matter of time before this list becomes so large that nearly any activity could serve to remove your Second Amendment rights.”

The NICS database will now continue to grow in the U.S. with government agencies receiving incentives for their contributions, and the United States’ involvement with the United Nations gives it the perfect setup to turn over all of its information on American citizens in the NICS database, in order to fully cooperate with the UN’s Program of Action.

As always, when rights are stripped away and civil liberties are ignored, it is done in the name of “safety and security,” even though, as history has shown, the opposite is true.

 

Illinois county declares itself a sanctuary for gun owners

When will an Australian local government district do the same?

Jack Burns is an educator, journalist, investigative reporter, and advocate of natural medicine. This article first appeared at The Free Thought Project.

Amid political buzzwords of “sanctuary cities” and “gun bans,” one Illinois county decided to wade into the fray by declaring itself a sanctuary for gun owners. The Effingham County board voted this past week, 8-1, to order its employees not to enforce any laws that would “unconstitutionally restrict the Second Amendment” to the U.S. Constitution.

Effingham County State’s Attorney Bryan Kibler said the measure is meant to act as a warning shot to tell the state legislature that the county does not want unnecessary gun control measures, or for the sale of firearms to be jeopardized. The resolution states:

The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms is guaranteed as an Individual Right under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and under the Constitution of the State of Illinois, and; the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms for defense of Life, Liberty, and Property is regarded as an Inalienable Right by the People of Effingham County, Illinois, and the People of Effingham County, Illinois, derive economic benefit from all safe forms of firearms recreation, hunting, and shooting conducted within Effingham County using all types of firearms allowable under the United States Constitution.

Board member David Campbell told Fox News that the county “decided it’s time for someone to take a hard stand.” He said the board modeled their resolution on other counties which have adopted similar measures.

The US Second Amendment allows citizens to bear arms even against out-of-control government. Australia desperately needs such an amendment before the people do it in any case.

The resolution, which Kibler said is “largely symbolic,” was drafted by the board as a response to what it perceives as an attack on the Second Amendment by the State of Illinois and its General Assembly.

“So we thought … why don’t we just make this a sanctuary county like they would for undocumented immigrants? So we did flip the script on it,” Kibler told Fox and Friends, noting that the goal of the resolution is to make it known “to the Illinois general assembly that if they keep on this path of stripping away Second Amendment rights [from gun owners] there’s going to be blowback from Southern Illinois.”

Ever since the resolution passed in Effingham, Kibler said the county has had numerous requests for a draft of the resolution to be passed in other counties in the state. The attorney pointed to bills being considered by the Illinois General Assembly that would restrict the purchase of ammunition to those aged 21 and older as proof that the state is slowly chipping away at individual freedoms.

Kibler said that when the county chose to use the word “sanctuary” in their resolution they received the attention they were seeking. “The Chicago legislation comes up with new… proposals every year which take away our Second Amendment rights,” he said. “So we can send a kid off to war…when he comes home…it’s going to be illegal for him to buy a gun with more than 10 rounds in it.”

Effingham County’s “sanctuary” resolution echoes Iroquois County’s similar resolution adopted in March, decrying the consideration of numerous gun control bills inside the Illinois General Assembly. In a statement, the Iroquois County said the current gun control measures being considered by the state legislature will infringe on their citizens’ rights to be able to defend themselves, engage in recreational hunting and shooting, and it will make instant felons out of any citizen under 21 who fails to surrender their weapons under the new proposed laws.

Similarly, Iroquois also denounced the state General Assembly’s gun control plans, saying they would effectively ban all private and club owned gun ranges and make it nearly impossible for individuals who work late at night and in dangerous jobs to wear body armor for protection, which would conceivably include motorcyclists who wear body armor for personal protection while cycling.

Board member David Campbell told Fox News that the county “decided it’s time for someone to take a hard stand.” He said the board modeled their resolution on other counties which have adopted similar measures.

The resolution, which Kibler said is “largely symbolic,” was drafted by the board as a response to what it perceives as an attack on the Second Amendment by the State of Illinois and its General Assembly.

“So we thought … why don’t we just make this a sanctuary county like they would for undocumented immigrants? So we did flip the script on it,” Kibler told Fox and Friends, noting that the goal of the resolution is to make it known “to the Illinois general assembly that if they keep on this path of stripping away Second Amendment rights [from gun owners] there’s going to be blowback from Southern Illinois.”

The resolution in Effingham County comes just weeks after Deerfield, Illinois, voted to ban nearly all modern weapons. While Deerfield’s ban is not symbolic, Effingham County’s resolution really does not have any teeth to it. Kibler noted that if the state decides to ban weapons as Chicago has done, there is really nothing a county or local law enforcement can do.

Residents in Deerfield were given 60 days to surrender their “assault weapons” or face fines of $1000 per day per gun. Upon careful reading of the ordinance, it appears that residents will be left with only revolvers, .22 caliber “plinking” rifles, and double barrel shotguns to defend their homes and families from criminals who could not care less about the law.

Fines for not disposing of the weapons range from $250 to $1000 per day per gun for those who choose not to comply with the city’s ordinance. While a fine may seem reasonable to some, as TFTP has reported on multiple occasions, failure to pay fines always results in police action. It is not far-fetched to predict major turmoil and arrests in the event of non-compliance.- Activist Post
