    “We had a gun to our head,”

    http://politics.suntimes.com/articl...ncil-votes-allow-gun-shops/wed-06252014-929am

    "Under the gun to satisfy a federal judge, the City Council unanimously agreed Wednesday to allow gun shops, but keep them out of most neighborhoods and require them to videotape every sale to prevent straw purchases.

    “If it was up to me as the person who helped establish the Brady bill, the five-day waiting period and the assault weapons ban, I wouldn’t take this step,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said after the 48-to-0 vote. "



    There are a couple of threads on Chicago and Video Tape, Chicago Gun Laws, if you are interested in the previous discussion.

    Also the story that got me to the link above mentioned the Supreme Court Ruling, but the article only mentions U.S. District Court

    Anyone want to open a shop in Chi-Town?

    I guess they'll never really get to put it to use - no one in their right minds would open a gun shop in Chicago. It was bad enough before, I can't see anyone, save for a psychopath, who would want to be responsible for abiding by all of the ridiculous legislation.

    Murder capital of the country - I doubt most guns used there are "bought" at guns stores.
