There's a new hero in America, and you should know his name:
Judge Joshua Morrison.
Effingham County Judge Joshua Morrison issued a massive victory for common sense recently when he produced a temporary restraining order stopping (for now) the implementation of the Illinois ban on common semiautomatic rifles.
Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat, signed the bill on January 10, 2023. Unconfirmed reports suggested that he was angry about only having initials instead of a proper name, so he decided to make voters miserable as well.
Pritzker's office released a statement that didn't comment on his strange first name, but did address his signing of the ban:
"The new law also requires existing owners of semi-automatic rifles to register their ownership, ensuring that law enforcement knows the location of these weapons of war and who to hold accountable if they fall into the wrong hands."
Voters were immediately furious. Sheriffs were shocked, with most of the law enforcement leaders in the state refusing to enforce the law. Almost 80% of sheriffs in the county told the new law to take a hike. Only 22 out of 102 sheriffs in Illinois had not spoken out against the bill at the time Morrison made his decision.
Judge Morrison issued the temporary restraining order after it was brought forth by "citizens from 87 Illinois counties."
Morrison observed that the Second Amendment is a national right, not a state-level one. It was absurd for the governor to think he could overrule the Bill of Rights.
