A suburb of Chicago has put a ban on assault weapons. According to The Blaze, the village of Deerfield has put a ban on assault weapons and "high capacity magazines" and the fines that come along with it are $1000 per day.

The Board of Trustees in Deerfield "unanimously approved" this assault weapon ban that will go into effect in June.

The term "Assault Weapon" includes the following:

  • Semiautomatic rifles
  • Semiautomatic pistols
  • Semiautomatic shotguns
  • Shotguns with a revolving cylinder
  • Uzi
  • AK-47
  • AR-15

Larry Nordal of Deerfield, believe this is just the beginning of what could happen:

“First, it’s going to be assault rifles, there will be new bans in the future. It’s just a matter of time.”
