Skip to comments.Chicago Police Department Roster of “Unsafe Handguns”
Posted on 07/16/2010 5:18:58 AM PDT by GeorgiaDawg32
While perusing a website whose name shall not be mentioned, I came across this article.
It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.
Chicago, IL --(Ammoland.com)- The City of Chicago released its roster of unsafe handguns that cannot be legally possessed in the City because they cannot be registered with the police as one part of obtaining a license to possess a gun, as required under the Citys new gun laws.
But the list is not limited to hand guns as the law is so vague it can be interpreted as to apply to all guns made by a manufacture.
Of comical interest is banning of the deadly Daisy BB Gun Line, probably because of it pure destructive power.
And dont forget Acme. Knowing who we are dealing with here they are probably referring to Acme Corporation from Looney Tunes? The coyote better watch out for Mayor Daley and his thugs now.
So besides a bunch of guns that have not been made in a 100 years what do you see on this list that is funny or raises your eyebrow? Leave us some comments below.
ROSTER OF UNSAFE HUNDGUNS AS DESIGNATED BY THE SUPERINTENDENT
The following handguns have been specifically disapproved by the Superintendent as unsafe handguns and therefore cannot be registered within the City of Chicago.
Where a model or type is not specifically referenced, all models from the listed manufacturer are deemed unsafe.

I think the safety factor of any gun depends on which end is pointed towards you.
Tired axiom time “if you outlaw guns only outlaws....”
Stupid bureaucrats... Guns don’t kill people, rapidly decelerating bullets do!
Thompson G2 Pistol, single shot, in .22 Short
That list required a lot of research time. Guess they have that kind of time on their hands.
I’m surprised to see Marlin on the list. Why not Winchester?
In all seriousness, I’m shocked to see the Sig Sauer Mosquito, and ALL Hi-Point models on the list. I mean, the Hi Point 9mm pistol is even approved in CA!
Can someone post the list? I can’t go to a mean old gun site from work.
Massachusetts banned that one.
It's a list of handguns. Marlin produced a line of small breaktop pocket pistols in the late 1800's that are not wise to use with modern ammo.
Ethan Allen? Boy you know you’re dealing with snobs when they get their handguns from Ethan Allen. (HHOK! I know, I know..)
Royal Arms Factory? The Enfield revolver is considered unsafe?

I can see the Mosquito and Walther P-22, both are actually manufactured by an airgun company and are of (IMO) substandard materials for a firearm. I had troubles with a P-22 early on, and S&W was never able to repair it properly.
These appear to be dog brand Saturday Night Specials. None of the Major Brands Like Colt, Beretta, H&K, S&W, Taurus, or Springfield Armory are listed. In fact, every handgun I own would be legal in Chicago including the Desert Eagle .50AE.
Chicago version: "if you outlaw guns only Aldermen...."
Teh observer must be gay - he’s looking at the gun! :-)
