Default Hey Chicago firearm owners-more bans coming to make you safer.

http://www.suntimes.com/21217609-761/emanuel-calls-special-council-session-on-assault-weapons-ban.html
Quote:
The concealed carry bill significantly altered by Gov. Pat Quinn’s amendatory veto also puts Chicago and other municipalities on the clock. They have 10 days upon signage to pass new or updated assault weapons legislation.

With both deadlines looming, Emanuel has summoned the City Council to a special meeting to approve both gun ordinances.

The first aims to reassure parents of CPS students forced to travel farther to new schools, sometimes through rival gang turf, by imposing higher fines against gunslingers near public schools, on buses and along “safe passage” routes.
Going to hit those on welfare with higher fines huh? - "Honey, don't go shoot Ricky. We can't afford it."

Going to hit gangs with higher fines? Uh Rahm, sorry to break the news to you. The gangs make way more than you ever thought of making.
Not like the city's actually going to get paid for this anyways.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...

It would ban a list of specifically named weapons and their equivalents.

They include: any semiautomatic rifle or handgun that is capable of accepting a detachable magazine and has at least one military feature; any shotgun capable of accepting a detachable magazine, has at least one military feature or has a fixed capacity of more than five rounds, and any weapon with a fixed magazine of more than 15 rounds. Military features include “telescoping stocks, pistol grips, grenade launchers, barrel shrouds.”


“We took a look at the latest in gun technology and broadened the definition of assault weapons,” said a top mayoral aide, noting that Chicago’s existing assault weapons ban doesn’t include a list of banned weapons or their specific features.

More law suites they are going to loose. How many more 10's of millions will it take out of their pockets before they learn.

Its FOOG, Its FOOG, Its FOOG, Its FOOG, Its FOOG, Its FOOG, Its FOOG, Its FOOG, Its FOOG, Its FOOG,

Just keep saying this until we believe it...

I feel your pain as a lifelong resident of New F'n York! Keep your eyes open, our Governor is going Nationwide next election if he gets a chance. What he did to NY is exactly what he intends to do to the rest of the Nation For Our Own Good, "Thank you daddy, may I have another one!!!".....

Bigjim- there you go again- assuming the money will come out of THEIR pockets!

It comes out of the pockets of taxpayers in Illinois. Hizzoner da Mayor could give a hoot how much it costs.

Ya mean out of our pockets? They don't mind paying our tax money for silly lawsuits, they will just raise more.

Edited after seeing C3 shooters post.

Nevermind
