Just after Chicago saw 39 people shot last weekend and the media completely ignored it to focus on the CA killings in which 3 were stabbed to death and 3 were shot to death, we now have reports that Chicago may be getting even more gun control.
If we have learned anything from Chicago it is that gun control does nothing to stop criminals while only restricting the rights of the law abiding. With most of the gun related crimes involving gangs and criminals, Chicago’s mayor is focusing on those who buy guns legally at gun shops.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is proposing strict regulations that include videotaping sales and refusing zoning in 99.5 percent of the city. If these plans come to pass each gun transaction in a gun shop will have to be video taped and saved.
This move by the mayor comes after a January 2014 order by Federal Judge Edmond E. Chang, who found that the city’s de-facto 2010 ban on the sale of firearms inside its limits was unconstitutional. Now it looks like Emanuel wants some revenge against gun owners for their win.
According to CBS Chicago,
Store owners would have to conduct quarterly audits of their gun sales and allow police to inspect their records. They also would have to get the police to approve a security plan before they could open their doors.
“There is no question it will be the smartest, toughest regulation on gun stores in the country,” said Janey Rountree, the mayor’s deputy chief of staff for public safety. “It’s designed to prevent gun trafficking and illegal sales in these stores.”
Those gun shops that do not comply with these new restrictions could lose their license to operate in the city for up to 3 years.
The NRA has not yet commented on these new regulations.
