Chicago--Yes, Alderman Richard Mell wanted a new window to register his guns including the one he can carry because of the office he holds.
Daley normally fought this idea for over two decades. There can only be an ulterior motive for his change of heart. Chicago’s politicians know they will lose their gun ban because of that D.C. Vs. Heller to be decided any time by the U.S. Supreme Court. Daley also knows that if gun ownership is a right he can’t charge to register guns. I fully expect Daley to jack up the fees to fill the city’s coffers at the expense of lawful gun owners.
If Chicago invites gun registration they will be able to misuse the gun owner data for future plans to harass gun owners.
