Chicago Mayor Daley Unveils New Gun Control Plan
July 01, 2010
Mayor Richard Daley unveiled a gun control ordinance today that would require gun owners to register their weapons with the city, get training and keep all but one firearm locked up.
But the mayor scaled back an earlier idea of only allowing one gun per adult in a home, instead going with a provision that would limit registration with the city to one handgun a month.
The proposals will go before the City Council Police and Fire Committee today, and Daley said the full council will meet Friday to consider it.
The quick response aimed at curbing the proliferation of firearms in the city comes after Monday's Supreme Court decision that effectively gutted Chicago's longstanding gun ban.
The measure, dubbed the "responsible gun ownership" ordinance, also bans gun shops in Chicago.
