Skip to comments.Plan for city gun shops would limit sites, require sales be taped
Posted on 05/27/2014 2:36:22 AM PDT by rellimpank
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is proposing a far-reaching ordinance that would keep gun stores out of most parts of the city and require them to videotape every sale to deter customers from buying firearms for crooks.
The ordinance is a response to a federal judges ruling in January that Chicagos longtime ban on gun stores was unconstitutional.
Emanuel chose not to fight the decision, and the court gave the city six months to approve store restrictions short of a ban. The deadline is July 14.
Under the proposed ordinance, special-use zoning would keep gun stores out of 99.5 percent of Chicago, limiting them to pockets of the North, West and South sides, city officials said. The stores could not be within 500 feet of a school or park.
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.

how about videotaping every vote that is cast in any election in chicago ?
If the BATF can’t ‘inspect’ Forms 4473 on a whim, why should a state or local entity be allowed such? There is a reason why Federal Law prohibits this; it’s called prevention of gun registration.
—I like that idea—
Do criminals actually go up to stores and shop for their weapons?
... because it's a big problem with school kids shopping at gun stores?
Do you think the FLOTUS’ father helped the “dead” to vote when he was a Ward Heeler in Chicago?
In Al Capone's Chicago, you could buy a Thompson submachine gun for $225 by mail.
Sure, video recording all Chicago gun store sales should make all the difference.....
Congress shall make no law . . .
. . . shall not be infringed.
The Second Amendment receives a higher level of protection than the First. America’s enemies in Chicago government need to learn this.
“Mayor Rahm Emanuel is proposing a far-reaching ordinance that would keep voter fraud out of most parts of the city and require election judges to videotape every vote to deter politicians from buying votes from democrats and the dead.
The ordinance is a response to a federal judges ruling in January that Chicagos longtime ban on fair elections was unconstitutional.
Emanuel chose not to fight the decision, and the court gave the city six months to approve honest elections short of a ban. The deadline is July 14.
Under the proposed ordinance, special-use zoning would keep voter fraud out of 99.5 percent of Chicago, limiting such to pockets of City Hall and the County Clerks Office, city officials said. Polling places could not be located within 500 feet of a graveyard or a Home Depot.
Election judges would have to conduct quarterly audits of their voter registrations and allow republicans to inspect their records. They also would have to get TEA Party approval before they could open the polling place doors.”
“... because it’s a big problem with school kids shopping at gun stores?”
Because it’s hard to brainwash them about the evils of
gun ownership when there’s a gun store right across the
street. It’s all liberal/fascist propaganda.
Serve up another lawsuit.
—yep—with only a few exceptions, the Capone era types only killed each other-—
Crooks don’t buy guns, they steal them.
—would be great if the S-T would let you post that as a comment-—
Nazis never change...
Are gun owners required to wear yellow Stars of David, too?
So all the violent criminals are going to videotape themselves buying illegal guns from the trunk of a car on the streets of Chicago and send the video to the police?
It’s obvious that they want to take guns from non-violent, law-abiding citizens and deliberately leave them in the hands of violent criminals.
This country's media is a vile joke.
