Tom DeVore won a temporary restraining order blocking enforcement of Pritzker’s new gun ban last Friday. Now, on Saturday, he’s seeking a new crop of plaintiffs and asking for a $200 buy-in, or “fee.” Same as before.
Judging by the verbiage on DeVore’s website, it surely looks like he wants to file on Monday or perhaps Tuesday at the latest.
Have at it if you’re interested.
I’m fully supportive of this not because I’m wanting to help Tom make some more money. I like DeVore but I’m a dash salty that he’s not including everyone. It smells a bit like a money grab, but he’s got a recipe that works, so why not open another front on this war against Pritzker and crew.
What really has me excited – and should have you equally thrilled as well – is a couple of steps down the road.
Frankly, I’m almost ebullient beyond measure because no doubt Tom’s going to ask for a new Emergency Hearing on this matter. Think of it as Groundhog Day 2.0.
Obviously the amateur-hour, half-assed pleadings of two of Kwame Raoul’s legal team (should we call them the Washington Wizards?) failed to come close to swaying a judge in Effingham County.
(Read the transcript here… defending the indefensible is genuinely difficult, I’ll admit to that).
What I want to hear is their arguments 2.0. And if these clowns can muster four attorneys of 449 or so in his office (my wife said one quit last week).
Obviously the first go-round was an epic failure.
Mr. DeVore’s saving us money and helping us on our coming lawsuit. We’re watching the state’s arguments and rebuttals carefully to make our pleading from the Illinois Gun Rights Alliance even more challenging for Kwame’s crew.
Think of us as the BORG for the good guys.
