The Chicago City Council has voted to expand the city’s gun offender registry.

The legislation, led by Ald. Ed Burke, passed late Wednesday morning.

It calls for an expansion of the city’s current gun registry.

Starting next month, any resident convicted of a violent crime with a gun would be required to register with Chicago police and check in with police every year for four years.

The policy would be similar to that of registered sex offenders.

    Burke is a grumpy old man that needs to retire. He's the guy that made the city foot the bill to keep the kids off his lawn. He wants to ban everything. Abuse of power. They pretend they're taking a stronger stance on gun crime. Bs. Criminals don't care if they're committing one crime or five. An extra law won't matter.

    I think that these overpaid blowbags just want to LOOK busy – like they have the people at heart…They could HONESTLY care less about the people of Chicago…As long as they have their FAT $$$ salaries, terrific benefits, drivers to tote their LAZY butts around – They will TRY to look busy.
