Mayor Rahm Emanuel to Ban Gun Shops from 99.5% of Chicago, Videotape All Sales

Back in January, U.S. District Judge Edmond Chang said that it is the government’s duty to protect constitutional rights in a ruling that overturned Chicago’s ban on the sale and transfer of firearms, ordinances that represented some of the toughest gun control laws in America.

Undeterred, now Mayor Rahm Emanuel is proposing a shiny new ordinance that would use special zoning rules to essentially block gun stores from operating in 99.5% of Chicago and deter any future gun businesses from opening in the scant space left.

Whatever gun shops that might try to remain in the pockets left in the South, North and West sides of town that represent the 0.5% of Chicago where the new zoning rules do not apply would have to follow a bevy of rules to not only open their doors, but to keep them open.

Requirements include that each and every gun purchase be videotaped at the point-of-sale “to deter customers from buying firearms for crooks,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Owners would also be required to produce a security plan that is pre-approved by Chicago police before the store could officially open up shop, in addition to completing quarterly sales audits and allowing the police to freely inspect all sales records.

That’s on top of the shop not being located within 500 feet of a school or a park in that 0.5% of Chicago that’s not zoned out.

According to the report these new ordinance recommendations were based on, less than 40% of the guns recovered in Chicago crime scenes were even purchased in the state of Illinois to begin with; Indiana was the biggest source of out-of-state guns recovered there, prompting the following statements:

Those findings — which mirror those in previous studies — support the need for a federal law specifically outlawing gun trafficking, such as a measure proposed by U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., the report said.

Illinois and local governments should impose stricter safety measures on suburban and Downstate gun stores, the report said. It also recommended creating a regional tracing center that would investigate firearm trafficking in northern Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana. (source)

So basically because the actual handgun ban was found unconstitutional, Emanuel is going to regulate guns in every other way possible with what essentially boils down to a bunch of legal hoops and a long-winded game of semantics.

Sure citizens of Chicago, you can have your 2nd Amendment rights, but

…First you have to actually find a gun store in the 0.5% of Chicago not zoned out which then passes police safety inspection and is then willing to operate by continuously jumping through all these new regulatory hoops (in addition to all the pre-existing state and federal regulatory hoops already in place for gun stores)…

…Then you too can line up around the block and get filmed the whole time like you are a guilty-until-proven-innocent criminal just for the “privilege” to buy a gun in Chicago in the first place.

(Never mind that, in one of the most dangerous, crime-ridden, gang-plagued cities in the whole country — to the point that the FBI bestowed the monicker “murder capital” on it back in 2012 — you might dare to want to protect yourself…)

“There is no question it will be the smartest, toughest regulation on gun stores in the country,” said Janey Rountree, the mayor’s deputy chief of staff for public safety. “It’s designed to prevent gun trafficking and illegal sales in these stores.” (source)

Or just prevent gun stores, period.

    These Rothschild Israeli is sucking America dry and destroying the country. Yet any criticism is Anti-Sematic or racist.

    The only Hitler are these Jews leaders themselves now.

    Hitler is back in a Jewish form.

    I am sick of these Rothschild backed Zionist with there Nazi idea of disarming and enslave us.

    When will the world wake up it does not matter who you are, it is your action that count.

    These Jewish exception-ism is sickening.

    Hey Labron…the price of a Glock just doubled. What ja mean bro. Our stupid mayor just made it impossible to buy a gun here in the hood. So now we can charge double bro for our street guns. What it is bro… what it is.

    Who are these people that think they, by decree, control everything? O, that’s’ right “The Obumo Brotherhood”. Wake up America, Wise up America.

  • garyamusic .

    You have to laugh at these lame attempts to control the problem without addressing the actual problem (and I realize it’s no laughing matter). Stats will prove (if it happens) that closing these stores did not help the situation one iota………..What it will do is give us pro-gun forces additional statistics on more idiotic failed policy.

    That kid in Santa Barbara stabbed some people and ran over more in his car, in addition to shooting people.
    Even with guns, people use knives and vehicles. . .

    Videotaping purchases.
    Pardon me but I thought the CCTV already does this PMSL. Next time you are in a shop look above the till. We nickname them “smart lanterns” LOL.
    The UK has more CCTV than the rest of the world put together, most of them in London alone but 2 places I know well:- Paris and Berlin are fast catching up.
    When google maps 1st came out I envied America for its lack of street cams but later updates showed the CCTV plague growing like mushrooms.
    I have many an old ghetto blaster, nokia phone, disco equipment etc no longer used so intend to recycle but I am certain that to buy such things today would require your passport to be shown.
    Further slight tip:- the Gypsy girls get their breast enlargements done cheaply in Poland and this country is nice and traditional. Cash is paid but I suspect controls will soon regulate normal life, prices of everyday things will increase obscenely and that disgusting spycam mania will take over.
    But for now the markets in Krakow remain as thriving and exciting as a souk in Sanaa☀️

    Pardon me for providing another tip few readers can take advantage of LOL but every early June the travellers head for Appleby for a great horse fair plus everything else important to them. Last been age 8 with parents but who wouldn’t wanna sing a song like I recall a Gypsy Woman? My own taking of sick leave is critical due to severe bad guts so no way can I afford another sickie this year.
    My illustration is to show how the Gypsies accept cash only even if trading horses and even cars. Failing this trade bling eg gold necklaces.
    My fear is now how Police presence and desire to document any and every business transaction may TERMINATE who the Gypsies are and the role they traditionally represent..
    Myself? Dictum Meum Pactum. My word is my bond. And this is the motto of the London Stock Exchange. Google it.
    So help me God.
