A move by several municipal governments to consider banning assault weapons has come to Lake County, and gun owners are preparing for a struggle.
The first arena will be village board and City Council chambers across the region, as firearms owners plan to speak publicly in opposition of local bans. If that doesn't work, the next venue likely will be the courtroom, according to Mike Weisman, second vice president for the Illinois State Rifle Association.
"There is litigation around the country on ordinances like this, and I wouldn't be surprised to see more," Weisman said.

The trib playing fast and loose with the english language. Throw in some deception, improper definitions, and you have a “story”.
Ahh, for the day when this newspaper and others like it (which would be all of them) go out of business.

Molan Labe MF’ers!
If Illinois is a home rule state, citizens likely have the power of recall. Sign recall petitions and throw these commies out of office. Where I lived, we recalled dozens of commies and thieves from local governments. We fired police chiefs and tossed a half-dozen politicians and bureaucrats into state prison.
I am going to use that phrase from now on:
Pass it on.
I like it, now to think up a sentence useing ABORTION ENTHUSIASTS and WELFARE BROOD MARES in the same sentence.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
