Former IL AG candidate Tom DeVore Files Second Lawsuit (Darren Bailey et al. v.
Pritzker et al.) Over Unconstitutional Assault Weapons Ban
Greenville, IL – On January 20, 2023 the Honorable Joshua Morrison out of Effingham County granted a Temporary Restraining Order on behalf of my clients against Governor Pritzker, Senate President Don Harmon, Speaker of the House Christopher Welch and Attorney General Kwame Raoul in regard to HB 5471, which is an outright attack on the constitutional rights of lawful gun owners across the state unless one is so fortunate to be in the large group of persons who somehow are excepted out.
After the Temporary Restraining Order was issued against HB 5471 our office was flooded with requests to represent citizens across the State of Illinois in second case. Today a second case was filed in White County styled as Darren Bailey et al. v. Pritzker et al. case number is 2023-MR-01. The people came together, and as result, over 1500 citizens for a second time joined in this effort to defend their inalienable rights to bear arms and to further stand up against the tyrannical ways which their legislature and the Governor continue to pass legislation in violation of clear constitutional mandates.
No longer can the citizens sit idly by while bureaucrats destroy the very foundational fabric of our great Republic. It’s an honor of my lifetime to play a role in representing the People against tyranny. Whether it be with the Illinois Supreme Court or the United States Supreme Court, we will continue to seek redress at every available turn until such time as the foundational principles which make this country great are restored to the People.
The Court has graciously provided my clients with an emergency hearing at 9:00 A.M. Wednesday, January 25th in White County, wherein we are asking for a temporary restraining order to restore their constitutional right to bear arms while this matter proceeds through the Courts.
