City council approves Emanuel’s gun sale plan

Gun shops are coming to Chicago, but with strict regulations.

Mayor Emanuel’s plan to allow gun sales in the city sailed through the City Council today with aldermen voting 48-0 for a proposal the mayor was forced to bring forward after a federal judge shot down the city’s ban on firearms stores.

The restrictions dictate that all sales will be recorded on surveillance video.

Also, people who want to buy handguns will have to sit-through a 72-hour waiting period, and they’ll only be able to buy one per month.

And people who carry a gun won’t be allowed within 500 feet of a school or park.
