Chicago Moves Quickly To Draft New Gun Ordinance

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley will push for a strict handgun ordinance to replace its doomed gun ban that will likely include limiting each resident to a single handgun and prohibiting gun stores from setting up shop in the city. That's according to Daley's top lawyer, Corporation Counsel Mara Georges. She spoke to a City Council committee on Tuesday about plans to purpose the new ordinance. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Americans have a right to own a gun for self-defense anywhere they live — a ruling that certainly means the end of Chicago's 28-year-old gun ban. But one gun rights supporter says many of the city's suggestions all but assure a legal battle, calling them "preposterous" and a violation of gun owners' civil rights.
