Chief AJ Sues State Over Sling Bow, State to Respond by Monday


A man suing the Illinois Department of Natural Resources for discrimination says he attempted to settle with the state but they weren’t interested.

 

John Huffer, also known as Chief AJ, is suing the state’s DNR in federal court claiming he’s being discriminated against because he’s Native American.

 

Huffer says the state won’t let him sell his modified sling shot for big game hunting because it is not powerful enough, but he says he has engineering reports that show his sling bow is powerful enough.

 

The Illinois Attorney General’s confirms they have until Monday to respond to the case but refused comment until then.
