Plan for city gun shops would limit sites, require sales be taped
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 27 may 2014 | Frank Main

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 judge’s ruling in January that Chicago’s 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.

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.

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?

Rahm Emanuel's Chicago is more dangerous than Al Capone's 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.....

Amendment I
Congress shall make no law . . .

Amendment II
. . . 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 judge’s ruling in January that Chicago’s 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.

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.

A new poll shows that 53% of Americans are less enthusiastic about voting than in previous elections.
It's getting so bad that, in Chicago, some cemeteries are canceling get-out-the-vote rallies.

This country's media is a vile joke.

That would be a "federal felony" ('cause EVERYTHING is, dontchaknow), and yes, Rahm & "Dick" Holder would spend as much taxpeasant money as was necessary to put the "dangerous videotapers" away for a couple of hundred-year prison terms...

Why does anyone live in these he$$holes like Chicago, New York, Los Angles, and San Franfreako?

Come down to TX or AZ and get away from these urban tyrants. Gun ownership in AZ is almost as easy as one can fine. Both Open carry and Consitutional carry prevail. Yes, we all have to live by NICS since the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act (Brady Act) of 1993, Public Law 103-159, was introduced.

1 U.S. States that have implemented Constitutional Carry
1.1 Alaska
1.2 Arizona
1.3 Arkansas
1.4 Vermont
1.5 Wyoming (for residents)
1.6 Oklahoma (residents of constitutional carry states)

Have I missed something. Has there been an increase in people buying guns for crooks? Is that something like “Cash for Clunkers”?

Yeah...cuz crooks always pay retail + a mark-up for the straw purchaser. I’d wager yer average gangbanger pays 20 cents on the dollar to get a stolen gun, or just steals it his own bad self.
