Ladies and gentlemen, if you needed another reason not to register your guns with the State of Illinois, we have another one for our state’s most populous county. Cook County residents should know that if they registered guns restricted by the so-called “Protect Illinois Communities Act” they are admitting to violating Cook County’s ordinance against ownership of said firearms.
And by registering those banned guns to enjoy the “so-called” grandfathering for existing owners (for now, at least), they the risk of immediate confiscation of said guns and arrest and prosecution for violating the Cook County local ban on the guns. The whole registration process gives local law enforcement all they need to get a warrant and come make an arrest.
Do you really think for a moment that Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle or Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart wouldn’t just LOVE to make some arrests of those who have flouted the county ordinance for all these years?
