Chicago abolishes gun registry in place since 1968

Chicago on Wednesday reluctantly abolished a 45-year-old requirement that gun owners register their weapons with the city, marking a victory for advocates of gun rights such as the National Rifle Association.

The city council voted to end the gun registry in place since 1968 to comply with court rulings against Chicago and Illinois gun control laws, and to bring the city into line with a state concealed carry law.

CGS,

This is great news and proof we need to go after them regarding our Second Amendment rather than cowering down and letting them go after our Second Amendment. It is proof that if everyone sticks together and stands up for our Consititutional Rights the politicians WILL LOOSE as they have been. It happened again this week in Colorado as the two Democrats that imposed the unconsitutional laws in Colorado were recalled and lost the vote and "Bit the Dust.;) Maybe other Democrats mostly and others who want to violate our Constitution can take a lesson and wake up. If not they should and WILL!
Thanks for the good news! The focus NOW! also needs to be on New York, California and Connecticut! Thanks to the NRA, NSSF, local Illinois Pistol and Rifle Clubs and members who have been responsible for starting to get our rights back.
That is what it takes! If we stick together and take a strong stand we will keep and gain back our Constitutional Rights.:)

Did you know that in 2012, for the first time every Illinois passed California in dollars spent by the NRA in legal fees? NRA has been focusing hard on Illinois and it shows! We've had major victory after major victory for the last 12 months backed by the NRA.
