The city of Chicago doesnt want gun shops, within its borders but a federal judge says thats unconstitutional.
So how does the city respond? With an ordinance that allows for shops but signals that strong resistance by imposing smart restrictions on gun shop owners.
In other words, the mayors office looks to have gotten its ordinance right.
Too bad the ordinance, introduced in City Council on Wednesday, will have absolutely no impact on Chicagos real gun problem: the unceasing flow of illegal weapons into the city. The ordinance monitors gun sales in the city, but almost all illegal weapons recovered here were purchased legally elsewhere, many just outside Chicago.

I'm always startled when liberals put their lack of concern for results this bluntly. Saying that the gun ordinance is good, but it will accomplish nothing is exactly what I expect from today's liberalism. It's sad too.
Perhaps what is really needed is “...smart restrictions...” on newspapers.
And that day may well be coming....
It will never occur to liberals such as the one who wrote this that the gun violence problem within this city will be solved only when law-abiding citizens are able to easily acquire guns to fight back against the armed criminals who assault them. This is an elementary concept, to be sure, but one which evades the “elite.”
The mainstream media won't discuss it, but the Democrats have an incredible history of failed policies.
Chicago doesn't have a gun problem. It has an out of control black male problem.
