Chicago Police Department Roster of “Unsafe Handguns”
Ammoland.com ^ | 7/16/10 | Ammoland.com

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 City’s 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 don’t 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.

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!

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.

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.

The problem is not the instrument. It’s the human holding the instrument. A responsible, law-abiding person can be holding the instrument and there is no problem. But if a spoiled, irresponsible, coddled, law-breaking person holds the instrument there will be trouble.
Instead of controlling the instrument, they should be controlling the criminal! Ah, but they know that! And they deliberately choose to leave the criminal alone and concentrate on the instrument in the hands of the law-abiding person.

Hey, don’t knock ACME. My grandfather’s double barrel 12 gauge shotgun (with hammers!) was made by ACME.

As far as I know, no road runners were harmed by this gun.

That list of arms suggests that there must be a lot more .41 Rimfire ammunition floating around the 'hood than would logically be expected. Or not.

Of course road runners are never harmed by ACME products.

The same cannot be said about coyotes.

I suspect that the ACME Corporation is secretly owned and operated by a shadowy consortium of road runners.

Nope. Look again.

Where a model or type is not specifically referenced, all models from the listed manufacturer are deemed unsafe.

If it’s not on the list, it’s out. That includes Taurus, Colt, Beretta etc.

If it's on the list it's out. If it's not on the list, it can still be registered. Colt only lists "all derringers" S&W "all spur trigger models" and Taurus and Beretta aren't mentioned.
