Governor JB Pritzker’s life just keeps getting messier when it comes to guns. Funny how tyrants don’t like it when the people don’t roll over and give up their rights, isn’t it?
Da Guv’s latest headache also comes from the opposite end of the state. Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Bullard offered his thoughts on the so-called “Protect Illinois Communities Act” to WSIL.
“We won’t be enforcing it,” he said to the media outlet. That on top of describing the new gun control measure as “more like a request” than law.
It’s not what Gov. Pritzker wanted to hear, especially after Darren Bailey’s announcements on New Year’s.
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ill. (WSIL) — The January 1st Deadline for Illinois gun owners to register their assault-style weapons is approaching.
This is for Illinoisans who already owned assault weapons before the Protect Illinois Communities Act was passed last January.
Jefferson County’s Sheriff Jeff Bullard says the law is more like a request until the Supreme Court determines if the law is constitutional.
“The fact that 90 sheriffs have declared that it’s unconstitutional, including myself being one of them, uh, and stating we won’t be enforcing it,” Bullard said.
Obviously the pressure continues to build on Pritzker and the Illinois State Police to “make an example” out of one or more people to keep the average gun owners in line with their edicts. Our popcorn is ready for the microwave.
