Proposed ordinance aims to curb number of guns sold in Chicago
Mayor Rahm Emanuel is proposing a strict new gun ordinance after a federal judge ruled Chicago’s longtime ban on gun stores in the city was unconstitutional.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports, the mayor wants to enforce special zoning that would keep gun stores from opening in 99.5% of the city. The stores could not be within 500 feet of a school or park.
The proposal would also require gun stores to video tape each sale to deter customers from buying firearms for criminals.
