Mayor proposes more jail time for gun violations
Mayor Rahm Emanuel sent a proposal to the city council today that would have criminals serve six months of jail time for certain gun violations instead of three.
Emanuel also said he favors President Obama’s plan outlined yesterday, part of which calls for limiting the number of bullets in a gun clip.
Other parts of the ordinance Emanuel is proposing includes jail time for those who fail to report their guns are lost, stolen or transferred to a new owner.
The mayor said he doesn’t want to wait for federal action on the president’s proposals.
