CHICAGO — A group of Chicago activists want the city to crack down on shady gun dealers.
Members of “United Power for Action and Justice” are demanding the city stop doing business with gun dealers whose weapons end up at crime scenes.
The group is calling on the city to release an approved gun dealer list for officers who need to purchase weapons for their jobs. That way, taxpayers would not be funding gun dealers who skirt the law.
The group is calling on Mayor Rahm Emanuel to change the loophole that allows officers to buy guns from any dealer.
