Posted on 05/29/2014 5:04:03 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced a proposal Wednesday that would require all gun sales in the city to be videotaped, as part of a plan to allow gun stores back in Chicago under very tight restrictions.
The measure, which would also ban gun stores near schools and parks, was introduced Wednesday at a city council meeting without discussion. It was then referred to the councils Public Safety Committee.
A vote on the proposal has not been scheduled.

How about handing over bribe money to Chicago politicians. Should that be videotaped?
how about video taping voting, that is a constitutional right also............................
Seems appropriate one should be required to purchase in the nude for identification purposes as well.
In Chicago, all politician sales should be videotaped.
This task will be hard to do since likely 80% of guns bought and sold in Chicago are on the black market.....
Mayor: We need to videotape guns sales. It’s good for everyone.
Reporter: Why don’t we just tape the black people buying guns?
Mayor: That would be racist.
Reporter; If it’s such a good thing, why is it racist?
Is he going to video tape gun transfers in the hood where 95% of the violence comes from?
I would actually like to see videotaping of the part where the prospective voter declares he is the person named on the voting role, under penalty of perjury.
And if thereafter it is shown that the person who voted was NOT the named registered person, then his face goes directly from video record to "Wanted" poster.
I would love for voting in the big cities to be videotaped.
Then we can compare the number of people who actually voted to the number of votes tallied.
There would be no more of this 110% voting nonsense.
There is not one gun store in the city of Chicago since they banned them.
Yet the murder rate is 2 times that of LA and three times that of New York.
I don't think sales of guns is your problem as your Poll number are going down as you brought Chicago back to the Capone days.
LOL - yeah I’m sure this new plan will stop gang bangers from killing each other...
One gang banger to another, “Damn, we gotta get our pictures taken, guess we’ll have to stop killing...”
He doesn’t want gun stores near schools or parks? I guess schools and parks don’t want the competition from gun sales.
Capone days?? I’d feel safer with Al Capone then with today’s criminals.
Yes, and they will also set up video stations in the inner city, to tape violent criminals buying illegal guns out of the trunks of criminals’ cars.
As I’ve said a million times, liberals want to take guns from the hands of honest, non-violent people and deliberately leave them in the hands of violent criminals.
Deliberately and intentionally, with full knowledge and awareness.
“LOL - yeah Im sure this new plan will stop gang bangers from killing each other...”
It also seems to assume that gang bangers legitimately buy their guns in Chicago gun stores—and then they go bad.
So a thug selling another thug a weapon or trading it for some drugs - will they be required to videotape the transaction?
Let all politicians and bureaucrats be videorecorded, 24 hours a day, and leave all citizens activities including business transactions, including weapons purchases, be private.
I would agree to this if they also require video’s at each polling station and all votes to be recorded, as well as all registrations to vote....
The open mind would ask if maybe it's something besides the guns.
Agree. This is an unnecessary law. It’s my guess that most, probably virtually all, have security cameras running full time covering all activity going on around the counter.
BLS inflation calculator puts that price at $3,119.37, i.e. when $225 in 1929 dollars is used.
If more people knew about what was in the Koran back in the 20s, then Prohibition backers (including so many Christian ministers) would be taken to task as to why they were trying to impose a tenet of Sharia law in a predominantly Christian country.
