Chicago’s City Council will decide Wednesday on expanding gun registry requirements.
Right now any resident convicted of unlawful use or possession of a firearm has to register with the police department.
A proposed amendment to that ordinance would add anyone convicted of committing a violent crime with a gun.
Offenders would also have to report, in person, to the police department every year of a four year registration period.
If the amendments passed, it goes into effect in April.
