This past week, two different city council boards gave the thumbs up to a  sweeping assault weapon ban, that includes any firearm that uses a detachable magazine and other features like pistol grips, forward grips, etc. The ban not only makes selling and buying of sporting rifles illegal, it also calls for confiscation of previously legally owned "assault weapons" by authorities or receive a felony charge and huge fines.  Boulder, Colorado would need to vote in favor twice more before this draconian law can be put into place. Deerfield Township in Illinois has already passed this and instituted a $250 to $1000 a day fine if owners do not turn in their firearms. 

These weapons that these local socialist/communists want to send armed government enforcers to steal; have cost their owners $1000 plus dollars to buy. In other words, the government is committing felony theft.  

But is it really against the law for the local government to impose these gun grab schemes? Yes, it is. 

Ex post facto law- or 'out of the aftermath') is a law that retroactively changes the legal consequences (or status) of actions that were committed or relationships that existed, before the enactment of the law. 

The constitution clearly declares Ex post facto law as UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

"In the United States, Congress is prohibited from passing ex-post facto laws by clause 3 of Article I, Section 9 of the United States Constitution. The states are prohibited from passing ex-post facto laws by clause 1 of Article I, Section 10. This is one of the relatively few restrictions that the United States Constitution made to both the power of the federal and state governments before the Fourteenth Amendment. Thomas Jefferson described them as "equally unjust in civil as in criminal cases". Over the years, however, when deciding ex-post facto cases, the United States Supreme Court has referred repeatedly to its ruling in Calder v. Bull, in which Justice Samuel Chase held that the prohibition applied only to criminal matters, not civil matters, and established four categories of unconstitutional ex-post facto laws." (1)

These local tyrants know this. They also know they are the minority because of the majority that shows up, are residents that are against their agenda.  Yet, they push for side skirting the 2nd amendment. This will be the shot heard around the world for this age.

For some historical perspective: 

From fauquierfreecitizen.com

"Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.
Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.
The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.
Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.
One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”
Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.
Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.
Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces overmatched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.
Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.
Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large."
And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775.
"Those who forget history are DOOMED to repeat it"

In Massachusetts(east coast commie-fornia) A federal judge ruled assault weapons do not fall under the protection of the 2nd Amendment because they resemble military weapons, even though the military DOES NOT USE any AR-15's.

"U.S. District Judge William Young in Boston ruled that assault weapons and large capacity magazines covered by the 1998 law were most useful in military service and fall outside the scope of the Second Amendment’s personal right to bear arms.
“In the absence of federal legislation, Massachusetts is free to ban these weapons and large capacity magazines,” Young wrote.
He also rejected a challenge to an enforcement notice Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey issued in 2016 to gun manufacturers and dealers clarifying what under the law is a “copy” of an assault weapon like the Colt AR-15." (2)
Judge Williams claimed there was no federal legislation protecting Sporting Rifles, this is a false claim. In the case of Heller v. DC, the Supreme Court ruled that in common use firearms are protected and only weapons that are unusual or functionally more dangerous are not covered. The AR 15 is a semi-automatic rifle and is not more dangerous or unusual than any other firearm in common use. 
Justice Scalia, author of Heller v. DC decision

Judge Williams has opened the legal reasoning to ban all semi-automatic firearms, effectively bypassing our 2nd amendment right to defend against a tyrannical government, which is now showing his face.

These actions will be the trigger that history will show started the 2nd American revolution.

Patriots all over this country will not surrender their legal arms and will repel any action that tries to steal them. All of our rights are not given by the government or the Bill of Rights, its given my nature or god to all free men. The Bill of Rights is a document to restrict the ability of government to infringe on our rights.

All government officials who wish to remove our rights should really think about the consequences of their actions and the result of their advocacy before trying to impose their will on the American Patriot.
