Pritzker Signs Bill Allowing Non-Citizens to Become Police Officers and Carry Guns, While Law-Abiding Gun Owners are Targeted, Months After Signing Unconstitutional Assault Weapons Ban



By Illinois Review

On Friday, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker signed legislation into law allowing non-citizens to apply to be police officers and carry guns, just months after signing legislation banning assault weapons – making Illinois just the 9th state to enact one of the strongest assault weapons bans in the country.

Law-abiding gun owners remain a target of the progressive governor with presidential aspirations, and are witnessing an erosion of their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms in Illinois.

A controversial debate continues across the country – especially in Illinois, about the rights of non-citizens and their ability to carry a gun.

Pritzker and the Democrats want to take away gun rights from lawful gun owners, yet at the same time, they want to allow non-citizens to carry guns and serve as police officers.

On Monday, the Illinois State Rifle Association – one of the most respected gun organizations in the country, sent a statement to Illinois Review,

“While Gov. Pritzker deliberately takes guns away from law-abiding citizens of Illinois, he simultaneously wants to put guns in the hands of non-citizens so they can serve as police officers. ‘Pritzker’ translated means ‘hypocrisy,’ and we’ll see him back in court.”

In a tweet on Sunday, US Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO, wrote,

“In the state of Illinois, illegals can now become police officers. Yes, you heard that right. People who are breaking the law by their presence here can now arrest American citizens. You know the other blue states are watching and getting ready to implement this idea as soon as they can! We either address this border crisis or allow our country to descend further into a Leftist dystopia.”

US Rep. Mary Miller, R-IL also tweeted on Saturday,

“At 5pm yesterday, when no one was paying attention, Pritzker signed a bill to allow illegal immigrants to become police officers, giving non-citizens the power to arrest citizens in our state. No sane state would allow foreign nationals to arrest their citizens, this is madness!”

In April, President Biden selected Chicago as the host of the 2024 Democratic National Convention after Pritzker called and offered to cover the costs of the convention – estimated to be around $100 million, if the president selected Chicago as the host city.

Illinois remains ground zero in the battle to protect our 2nd Amendment rights, and Pritzker is using his wealth and power – and with help from The White House, to convince other states to pass similar assault weapons bans and anti-gun laws.
