Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Office will propose a new ordinance to restrict the legal sale of guns in Chicago after a ban on stores was found unconstitutional.
It’s been more than three decades since stores could legally sell handguns in Chicago. But now the handgun ban is gone and concealed carry is the law.
Federal court has said Chicago must again permit stores to sell handguns to those who meet legal requirements. While not happy with that, the mayor has a plan that he intends to roll out to Chicago City Council today.
The city lost its bid to keep retail gun sales beyond its borders. So now, the Emanuel administration is proposing an ordinance that would so tightly restrict stores selling guns that more than 95-percent of the city would be off-limits to the stores.
