The Village of Deerfield issues the following statement regarding the June 18, 2018, amendment of the assault weapons ordinance:
"On Monday, June 18, the Board of Trustees of the Village of Deerfield adopted an ordinance that amends its Village Code to clearly and expressly outlaw the possession, manufacture, sale, transfer or transport of large capacity magazines within the Village. This amendment is intended simply, and only, to clarify the Village Board’s intent when it adopted its initial amendments to its regulation of assault weapons at its meeting on April 2. In light of the temporary restraining order entered last week by the Circuit Court of Lake County, the Village will not enforce the June 18 amendment so long as the injunctive order remains in place."
