City Council votes to expand Chicago’s gun registry
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.
