Mayor Rahm Emanuel to Ban Gun Shops from 99.5% of Chicago, Videotape All Sales

•, Melissa Melton
Undeterred, now Mayor Rahm Emanuel is proposing a shiny new ordinance that would use special zoning rules to essentially block gun stores from operating in 99.5% of Chicago and deter any future gun businesses from opening in the scant space left. Whatever gun shops that might try to remain in the pockets left in the South, North and West sides of town that represent the 0.5% of Chicago where the new zoning rules do not apply would have to follow a bevy of rules to not only open their doors, but to keep them open. Requirements include that each and every gun purchase be videotaped at the point-of-sale "to deter customers from buying firearms for crooks," according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Owners would also be required to produce a security plan that is pre-approved by Chicago police before the store could officially open up shop, in addition to completing quarterly sales audits and allowing the police to freely inspect all sales records. - See more at:
