    (Natural News) A growing group of sheriffs in Illinois are vowing not to enforce provisions of a new gun control law passed by the Democrat-controlled General Assembly and signed by Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker this week.
    The statute, which is being heavily criticized as anti-Second Amendment and potentially unconstitutional, not only calls for banning new sales of so-called 殿ssault weapons, but while it allows current owners to keep the weapons they have, they must register them with the Illinois State Police, and that is where the sheriffs have drawn a line.
    According to The Epoch Times:
    The Democrat-controlled state legislature imposed a ban on a variety of semiautomatic guns, magazines, and devices that allow a weapon to fire more quickly on Monday.
    The Protecting Illinois Communities Act passed the Illinois Senate on Monday night by a vote margin of 3420. The bill makes it illegal for Illinois residents to purchase, transfer, or manufacture 殿ssault weapons and extended magazines. According to the bill痴 language, an 殿ssault weapon is a semiautomatic rifle that can accept a detachable magazine and has a pistol grip or thumbhole stock, a flash suppressor, a grenade launcher, a barrel shroud, or other characteristics.
    的知 signing this legislation tonight so it can take immediate effect, Pritzker said in a press conference, local media reported on Tuesday.
    In a letter posted to Facebook, Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen wrote that he plans to follow his 杜orals, beliefs, and obligations concerning protecting the rights of the citizens of his county.
    典hese types of laws put law enforcement officers and prosecutors in a very precarious box, with us having to decide to not enforce laws that were passed by government bodies, McMillen wrote. 釘ut, as your Greene County Sheriff, I cannot sit back and let laws strip Greene County citizens of their constitutional rights, and not take a stance supporting the citizens against a government that wants to trample on their rights.
    Meanwhile, Iroquois County Sheriff Clinton J. Perzee noted in a letter of his own, 典he right to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people. I, among many others, believe that HB 5471 is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
    His letter followed a Dec. 13 vote by the Iroquois County Board implementing a measure that forbids the 砥se of county funds, appropriation, personnel, or property to enforce the law, The Epoch Times noted further.
    Perzee said that neither he nor his office will be checking to ensure that 斗awful gun owners register their weapons with the State, nor will we be arresting or housing law abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with non-compliance of this Act.
    Clinton County Sheriff Dan Travous, Macoupin County Sheriff Shawn Kahl, and Monroe County Sheriff Neal Rohlfing all made similar statements and commitments to their residents.
    Also, Madison County Sheriff Jeff Connor, in conjunction with the county痴 State痴 Attorney Tom Haine, noted in a joint statement that they expect the law will face legal challenges and 鍍rust that this legislative overreach will not stand.
    的n the meantime, we remain focused on reducing violent crime, their letter reads. 典herefore, pending further direction by the courts, the Madison County Sheriff痴 Office will not expend its limited resources to check whether otherwise law-abiding gun owners have registered their weapons with the State, nor will the Madison County Sheriff痴 Office be arresting or housing otherwise law-abiding individuals solely due to non-compliance with [the law].
    Edwards County Sheriff Darby Boewe also took to social media with an almost identical vow not to enforce the law.
    撤art of my duties that I accepted upon being sworn into office was to protect the rights provided to all of us, in the Constitution, Boewe wrote on Facebook. 徹ne of those rights enumerated is the right of the people to KEEP and BEAR ARMS provided under the 2nd Amendment. The right to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people.
    Logan County, Kankakee County, Piatt County, LaSalle County, Knox County, Pike County, Putnam County, St. Clair County, Union County, Wabash County, Woodford County, Williamson County, Wayne County, Shelby County, Ogle County, Jo Daviess County, and more posted similar letters.

    (Natural News) A growing number of sheriffs in the state of Illinois have publicly vowed not to enforce provisions of a new gun control law passed by the state痴 Democrat supermajority and signed by a Democratic governor who has 24/7/365 protection provided him at taxpayer痴 expense.
    Sheriffs from Kankakee County, Boone County, Winnebago County and McHenry County all posted similar messages on social media that they specifically will not comply with or enforce the portion of the law that requires lawful gun owners to register their firearms with the state highway patrol; while the new law bans so-called 殿ssault weapons, residents who own them can keep them but they must be registered, according to NBC Chicago.
    典he recently passed law, HB 5471, will outlaw the sale, manufacture, possession and purchase of 疎ssault-style weapons, while also limiting magazine capacity to 10 rounds for long guns and 15 rounds for handguns, The Daily Caller reports.
    Kankakee County Sheriff Mike Downey posted his message on Facebook last week, noting that one of his jobs is to protect and defend the Constitution, which includes the Second Amendment痴 guaranteed right to 徒eep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property.
    鄭s the custodian of the jail and chief law enforcement official for Kankakee County, that neither myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the State, nor will we be arresting or housing law abiding individuals that have been charged solely with non-compliance of this Act, Downey noted further in his post, calling the law a 田lear violation of the Second Amendment.
    McHenry County Sheriff Robb Tadelman, meanwhile, also said his office won稚 be enforcing the gun registration portion of the new law.
    哲either myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the state, nor will we be arresting or housing law abiding individuals that have been charged solely with non-compliance with this act, Tadelman noted in his own social media post, according to NBC Chicago.
